DRB-HICOM (MYX: 1619) Berhad is one of Malaysia's leading corporations, involved in the automotive manufacturing, assembly and distribution industry through its involvement in the passenger car and four wheel drive vehicle market segment, the national truck project and the national motorcycle project. DRB-HICOM assembles cars in Malaysia for TATA Motors, Iveco, MAN SE, Honda, Isuzu, Suzuki, Mercedes-Benz[2] and Volkswagen,[3][4] with plans for expansion.[5] Besides automotive concerns, the group's core business focuses are in the services and property & infrastructure sectors.
