今日快訊!普騰即將迎來脫胎換骨?新官上任三把火,李春榮第一把火燒向零部件部門,土著供應商叫苦連天!新官大戲太精彩!

中國吉利汽車強勢領導大馬普騰才短短半年,本地零件供應商卻一個個叫苦連天了!到底發生什麼事?

自從中國吉利派出中國《車王》李春榮出任大馬普騰公司首席執行員以來,許多初次與他交手的本地汽車零件供應商,幾乎全都吃到了苦頭!尤其那些土著供應商,在李春榮的強勢手腕下,一個個吃不了兜著走!

李春榮新官上任三把火,第一把火就燒向所有汽車零部件供應商!他開出兩個嚴苛的條件,要求所有零部件供應商必須將價格調降20%以減輕汽車製造成本;如果做不到,就取消供應合約!

原本吃國產車的便宜吃到夠夠的供應商,這回總算是踢到大鐵板了。

熟悉這行業的人都知道,政府管控的官聯公司,無論領導階層還是供應商,絕大多數都是土著霸完的,非土著根本沒什麼機會賺到錢,除非你跟土著供應商合作,給他們Buta Buta從中賺取傭金,才有可能做到普騰的生意。這樣一來,普騰的零件成本自然就居高不下了。

現在中國來了個首席執行員,還是一個擁有實權的,有尚方寶劍可以先斬後奏的;土著供應商當然也就一個個臉都青了。

根據報導,中國吉利今年5月成功以4億6030萬令吉的代價,從官聯公司DRB重工業手中收購普騰49.9%股權;同時取得了英國跑車公司蓮花LOTUS的控制權。

吉利汽車老闆李書福知道普騰國產車病得很嚴重,必須找來高手才能讓它起死回生。而李春榮原本在中國本田東風汽車公司當掌舵人,被李書福三顧茅廬親自登門造訪禮聘,千里迢迢來到大馬出任普騰最高領導人。他也不負李書福重託,一上任就揮舞大刀,往那些土著寄生蟲的頭上砍去了。

叫苦連天的土著供應商對本地媒體申訴,紛紛表示李春榮的鐵腕做法有些不近人情,太過強硬。

他們表示,他們很難跟中國的汽車零部件供應商競爭,主要是因為中國汽車業太強大,需求量很高,零件可以大量生產以降低成本,因此在價格上他們很難競爭。

他們說,新任CEO不但要求他們降價20%,同時也要求提升零部件的品質,他對現有的零件品質很不滿意,認為還有很大的提升空間。

《要我們提升品質水準,卻又要我們降價,這太難了。》他們說。但是當李春榮拿出品質優良價格又便宜的零件產品給他們看時,他們又沒辦法反駁。

現在他們表示,他們也只能盡量配合李春榮的要求,有些資金比較充足的供應商已經計劃到中國尋找合作夥伴,讓中國生產普騰零部件。《如果各種辦法都行不通,那我們只好打包離開了。》一些信心不足的供應商喪氣的說。

對李春榮而言,這兩項要求其實都合情合理。零部件成本太高,是造成普騰國產車售價居高不下的原因之一;而零部件的品質不良,經常鬧故障,也是國產車被人詬病的主要原因。

看來李春榮的鐵腕政策,在強大後台支持下,應該不難貫徹;那些長期依附在國產車身上吸血的土著供應商,看來好日子到頭咯。。。

Proton vendors struggling to keep up with Chinese manufacturers

PETALING JAYA: Proton vendors are reportedly struggling to compete with Chinese manufacturers who are benefiting from low material costs, a strong automotive value chain and a wealth of cheap labour.

Six months after China』s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group bought a 49.9% stake in Proton Holdings Bhd, local vendors say they risk losing their business to competitors if they do not minimise costs and improve quality, The Malaysian Reserve (TMR) reported today.

However, this may not be possible for some.

A vendor at a seat upholstery company told the portal that Chinese manufacturers could produce leather seats at only 50% of the cost.

「We can』t compete with that kind of cost due to the mass production in China,」 he was quoted as saying.

Another vendor said they would have to find business partners in China if they were unable to meet Proton』s objectives on their own.

Exiting the business would be the last option, the vendor added.

Quoting industry sources, the report said many Tier-1 Proton vendors were currently visiting Geely and its vendors』 factories in order to explore China』s Tier-1 market and look into possible joint ventures with automotive suppliers there.

Concerns over the impact of Geely』s 49.9% acquisition on Proton vendors were raised as early as May, when PKR』s Wong Chen asked if the China-based carmaker would control the auto parts industry in Malaysia.

Last month, Proton told its automotive parts suppliers to cut prices by 20% to reduce production costs and ensure that vendors remain competitive.

TMR quoted a source as saying vendors felt they could lower prices if Proton could guarantee higher orders, as was being done by Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua).

Under the RM460.3 million deal with Proton』s parent company, DRB-Hicom Bhd, Geely is expected to lend expertise in the areas of production, manufacturing, operations and marketing to Proton.

In 2001, Proton, which benefited from decades of government support and bailouts since its inception in 1983, had a market share of 53%. Last year, Proton』s market share stood at 14%.

Last April, the government gave Proton RM1.5 billion in financial aid on the condition that it implements a turnaround plan and finds a foreign partner to assist in research and development.
