SC Auto Rolls Out Asia’s First Integral Bus From Its Myanmar Plant

SC Auto Rolls Out Asia’s First Integral Bus From Its Myanmar Plant

Singapore’s home-grown company SC Auto Industries (S) Pte Ltd has launched Asia’s first integral game-changing bus, SC Neustar, in Yangon, Myanmar. This step not only highlighted the completion of its bus manufacturing plant in the country, but also marks the arrival of SC Neustar for Myanmar. Designed with SC Auto’s proprietary Euro 3, the latest technology in the bus manufacturing industry, SC Neustar delivers the complete transport solution, setting regional benchmark in terms of higher performance, greater efficiency and better economy.

SC Auto’s manufacturing plant in Myanmar is another milestone in the company’s strategic plans for the country. “I believe SC Auto will deliver remarkable change and hope to both the long-distance express bus market in Myanmar and SC Auto. We are here to build more than just new generation of buses. The vision for SC Auto is clear—it is a world class facility serving both Myanmar and Singapore markets and becoming a hub for exports to other markets in the world,” said Tan Siow Chua, Chairman of SC Auto, during a ceremony last May 28 in Yangon. “As Asia’s first and only integral bus OEM, we aim to set the new standard of express bus lifestyle experience by providing local consumers with our products and services, but also deeply engaging with them and giving back to the community whenever it is possible. Myanmar represents a significant role in expanding SC Auto footprint in Asia and today feels like the start of another chapter in our SC Auto success story.”

The ceremony was also attended by H.E. U Thaung Tun, Union Minister, Ministry of Investment and Foreign Economic Relations, Chairman, Myanmar Investment Commission; H.E. U Phyo Min Thein, Chief Minister, Yangon Region Government; and H.E. Vanessa Chan, Ambassador, Embassy of the Republic of Singapore to Myanmar.

Since 2014, SC Auto has invested more than S$6 million in R&D to develop innovative automobile technology to build greater efficiency, economy and performance bus. SC Neustar is built and certified in accordance to the global standards and has been durability tested under all weather conditions over thousands of kilometres across one of the world’s most challenging test tracks in Europe.

With the launch of SC Neustar in Singapore, the company strengthens its position in Asia’s bus manufacturing industry by transforming from a quality bus body builder to an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), signifying a step towards in achieving the ambition to design, manufacture and assemble on its own product from the start to the finish.

In December last year, SC Auto has doubled the area of its Singapore factory to 200,000 sqft to meet the growing demand for SC Neustar. It also enabled SC Auto to invest and set up its first overseas production plant in Myanmar, positioning SC Auto to be the first and only foreign bus manufacturing plant in the country, that is also supplying high-quality bus to the local market.

SC Auto’s S$30 million production plant in Myanmar features state-of-the-art automated systems, including precision 2.5D laser tube and 2D laser sheet cutting machines, and automatic wire harness manufacturing. The company aims to produce a maximum of 1,000 units per annum and expects to cover the entire Asia presence with its Singapore and Myanmar factories.

The company has begun manufacturing in its Myanmar facility, located at Yangon Industrial Zone in Mingalardon Township. It can produce approximately up to 600 buses each year.
