Aman Razak Auto Sdn. Bhd.

History of Aman Razak

The journey behind the establishment of Aman Razak since 3rd February 1983, was full with obstacles and adversities. Founded by Allahyarham Dato’ Haji Othman bin Abdul Razak, it has contributed to a new chapter in our local automobile industry, geared by the rapidly changing technology and sustainable business strategies.

Aman Razak is founded by the late founder, Allahyarham Dato’ Haji Othman on his high interest and determination to become a successful Malay entrepreneur. He started small by buying used cars. These cars are not only from around the cities in Kelantan, but he has established a network with dealers from Kuantan, Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Penang. Driven by the aforementioned motivation, he endeavored all his efforts regardless of exhaustion and difficulties. It was told that he used to travel back and forth on regular basis to these cities by public transport. Then, he would control each and every single car, restoring them to a relatively competitive level within a profitable range.

In the same year, Aman Razak has received AP approval from Ministry of International Trade and began importing used cars from Japan and England. The biggest hurdle confronted by the late founder was to provide a huge sum of substantial capital to keep his business rolling. However, we praised his determination for he successfully went through it despite the periods of economic recession from 1985 till 1987.

In 1984, another large Japanese automobile company, Toyota, has entrusted Aman Razak Group as its official dealer and distributor in Kelantan. While many companies ended their operations after the recession due to the slow growth in world economy, this company survived and stood still – but not without sweat and struggle. However, it was not until 4 years later when Aman Razak gained its name and reputation for working with Toyota. The company started to grow rapidly, built its reputation among the customers and progressively rose to the peak when it was entitled as the official distributor for the national car brand, Proton. These have been a huge milestone for this company and it started to climb the ladder of success, step by step.

Aman Razak has been through the glorious moment of local automotive industry which took place from 1989 till 1997, as one of the top imported used car dealers. The late founder, Allahyarham Dato’ Haji Othman has expanded his company’s operation to Kuala Lumpur. He realised that such a big step required someone, namely a potential successor, who will continue his business and legacy. Therefore, he decided to appoint his eldest son, Dato’ Kisham@Khairul bin Dato’ Haji Othman as Aman Razak’s managing director in 1992, to strengthen the company.

Dato’ Kisham presence in the board has brought a new dimension to Aman Razak. Young and laden with brand-new ideas, he is unique in personality. His passion is clearly portrayed in the way he works – he is particular in the quality of the restored cars and able to fascinate customers with their refined looks and performances. Under his management, sales increased incredibly and company’s profit leaped beyond the previous margin. Consequently, Dato’ Kisham upgraded the showroom so that it becomes of a benchmark against other competitors.

Working under one roof, the father and son duo had attracted more interest from overseas suppliers and even more, strengthened the bond with existing suppliers. They managed to obtained more APs as years passed. One of their bold steps was in which the government suggested to the owner of the AP to join a consortium to strengthen the automobile business in terms of finance. They refused it and coming to grip with their decision which was actually a wise one. In a short time, sales boosted, shooting ahead of other dealers who joined the consortium.

Dato’ Kisham’s leadership isn’t only confined to efforts he worked with his late father. On 26 January 2005, Aman Razak Cartrade Sdn. Bhd. was born and it becomes the sole dealer of Mitsubishi in Kelantan, from May 2007. It is the best 3S centre in Kelantan, equipped with all essential facilities. In 2007, Aman Razak Cartrade was listed in top 10 list of best car dealers in Malaysia.

At present, Aman Razak is very synonym with car owners in Kelantan, while our branch in Kuala Lumpur exhibits our strong commitment towards our future success. Supported by 200 staffs, Aman Razak is aspired to continue its excellency even without the presence of its founder, Allahyarham Dato’ Haji Othman. With few well-designated showrooms for displays, it proved that Aman Razak is bound and determined to uphold the Bumiputera entrepreneurs in Malaysia.

Included in the future plans is a maintenance workshop for luxurious cars equipped with latest facilities and equipments, branded accessories, ‘ketok body’ and paint materials. All plans are supervised under Dato’ Kisham who will steer the group further when Aman Razak Autocare will be established.

Aman Razak also aims to spread its wings to Terengganu and Pahang soon. Furthermore, as a response to local interest in motor sports, Aman Razak plans to build a national circuit to enliven this industry in our homeland. With efforts and commitments from all employees, Insha Allah, we would like to see Aman Razak featured worldwide in near future – Amin.
