“2021 Malaysia Home Improvement Retail Company of the Year”
KUALA LUMPUR, 22 December 2021 – It’s another award for Malaysia’s largest home improvement retailer, MR D.I.Y. Group (M) Berhad (“MR D.I.Y.”). The homegrown retailer was accorded Frost & Sullivan’s “2021 Malaysia Home Improvement Retail Company of the Year” at a virtual ceremony on 16th December 2021. This follows the retailer being recognised with the “Frost & Sullivan 2020 Market Leadership Award” last year.
This international award recognises companies that demonstrate excellence across two dimensions evaluated by Frost & Sullivan – Visionary Innovation & Performance, as well as Customer Impact. A rigorous assessment conducted by Frost & Sullivan found the company excelled in many areas under the Home Improvement Retail space, a testament to MR D.I.Y’s continued efforts to implement best practices across the organisation.
In its citation for MR D.I.Y’s win, the consultancy said: “In a highly fragmented market, MR D.I.Y continues to retain its position as the unchallenged market leader. As of 2021, it is the only sizeable chain player in Malaysia with a nationwide presence and with a growing number of retail stores, all of which are managed through in-house operations. The company’s positive financial performance, even at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, proves its resilience to withstand negative external economic impacts, thanks to the value proposition it offers consumers, its scale, and internal operational efficiencies. Furthermore, the discounts offered on home brands and bestselling items highlight the company’s continuous efforts to remain relevant, supportive of the needs of Malaysians, and loyal to its tagline, ‘Always Low Prices’, even in difficult times.”
Dedicating the award to its employees and customers, Andy Chin, MR D.I.Y. Group (M) Berhad’s Vice President of Marketing said, “The Frost & Sullivan Award is a truly prestigious one, and we are humbled to be recognised for the second year in a row. This award is dedicated to our 12,000 employees nationwide, who have gone beyond the call of duty this past year to ensure we continue to deliver on our promise of “Always Low Prices” to our customers nationwide, who in turn have rewarded us with their loyalty. We will continue to strive to support and meet the needs of our communities around the country. We would also like to thank Frost & Sullivan for this recognition; we are deeply honoured by this recognition.
