Sime Darby Motors’ first assembly plant was the Associated Motors Industries (AMI) plant in Selangor, Malaysia in 1982, assembling BMW and Land Rover vehicles.

In 2004, Sime Darby Motors acquired the Inokom assembly plant in Kedah, Malaysia, assembling various Hyundai passenger and commercial vehicles. In 2008, assembly operations for BMW and Land Rover were relocated to Inokom. The MINI and Mazda brands were added in 2011. In 2018, Sime Darby Motors launched the Sime Darby Auto Engineering (SDAE) Engine Assembly Facility. The engine assembly facility supports BMW Group Malaysia’s growing demand for locally assembled vehicles with the newest capabilities in engine assembly technology.

Assembly materials are sourced from respective principals overseas as well as locally, catering for both the domestic and export markets. Inokom’s current capacity is 38,000 vehicles while SDAE’s current capacity is 10,000 engines per annum. Utilising 51% of a 200-acre site, the two plants has the potential to expand its production facility and is poised to meet increasing demand from the Asia Pacific region.
