Press Release (ePRNews.com) - KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Nov 20, 2017 - MisterTyre Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“MisterTyre”) has signed an Internship Partnership Agreement with the TOC Automotive College (“TOC”) to develop Malaysian Car Care Professionals for the digital economy. The Internship Programme provides TOC’s students with practical on-the-job experience and exposure to the digital economy for automotive services and e-commerce.
MisterTyre is first in the world to launch a mobile app that offers to customers new tyres from 28 global brands, rotation and front wheel alignment, engine oil service and battery via a mobile delivery service. MisterTyre’s highly trained car care professionals also perform a free 12-point check for customers to ensure that every key aspect of their car is monitored. Appointment slots are available daily from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. to suit car owners’ busy schedules. The substantial cost savings of digital economy and “direct from the manufacturer” supply chain is passed on to the consumer through MisterTyre’s “Best Price Guarantee” commitment.
TOC Automotive College (“TOC”) is a pioneer in professional automotive education in Malaysia. It has been accorded with multiple local and international awards in the education and skills industry. Earlier this year, Autobacs Seven Co. Ltd. (https://www.autobacs.co.jp/en/), a leading Asian automotive aftermarkets retailer headquartered in Japan, has become an equity holder of TOC.
“We are excited to work with TOC Automotive College and their students. The Internship Programme allows for students to learn valuable on-the-job skills from our highly skilled technicians in the context of a digital, e-commerce environment. The MisterTyre business model is a significant departure from and very disruptive to the traditional “store” model for automotive services. We are the world’s first “app only” automotive aftermarket services provider offering new tyres, rotation and front wheel alignment, engine oil and batteries. Our business model removes the “middleman” from the supply chain, thereby allowing MisterTyre to offer incredible deals with no charge for mobile service whilst empowering consumers to make informed decisions on their automotive repair requirements.
The Internship Agreement was signed by Mr. Dennis Melka, the executive director and founder of MisterTyre, and Madam Adelaine LK Foo, the CEO of TOC Automotive College.
Mr. Melka also added that “The Internship program is a win-win solution for the TOC’s students and MisterTyre as it enables a new generation of technicians to be trained directly in a digital economy environment without exposure to a traditional auto shop work culture. These young technicians will be trained in the usage of high-end equipment whilst learning the soft skills for customer engagement in a tech-enabled, mobile environment.”
Adelaine LK Foo, CEO of TOC Automotive College, further added, “Through this collaboration, students will not only be able to be placed in the industry successfully but will also be able to extend their coursework knowledge beyond the classroom with the global digital leader in the automotive service industry. This aligns with the College’s innovative vision in providing the best learning experience and to providing practical experience for students, grooming them to become world-class automotive specialists.”
This Internship Partnership Agreement was signed on 14 November 2017, at TOC Automotive College, based in Petaling Jaya. The Internship Programme will commence in January 2018, after which outstanding trainees may be offered a full-time placement at MisterTyre.
