China truckmaker Dongfeng is slowly increasing its footprint within the Philippines as they have recently opened their second dealership.
Pilipinas Autogroup, Inc. (PAI)–the local distributor for Dongfeng trucks–has opened its Isabela showroom and service center.
In partnership with Auto Ten Trade and Services, the Dongfeng Isabela dealership is bound to cater to construction and hauling needs of the region.
The latest Dongfeng dealership is strategically-located at Barangay Taringsing, Cordon, Isabela.
PAI president Cresencio Fernandez Jr. expressed pride over the newest dealership in Isabela province.
According to him, the expansion program is in line with the statement madr PAI chair David Coyukiat.
“We entered the market of Isabela as we recognize a lot of potential growth as business in this area is booming. From construction, hauling, and transport needs, Dongfeng trucks will provide quality vehicles backed up by after sales support. Four more outlets will be soft-launched in the coming weeks to cover strategic high traffic locations,” he said.
Gracing the event were Ruben Ronquillo Jr.–Sales Director of PAI, Julie Zuniega, Neil Carlo Federizo–General Manager of Auto Ten Trade and Services, Nicomedes Federizo, Efren Malupeng–Municipal Administrator of the municipality of Cordon, Jun Deri–consultant for Auto Ten Trade and Services, and Ramil Mendoza–Division Head of Technical and Engineering for PAI.
Back in mid October, PAI opened its doors to the Philippine market as Dongfeng has announced its premier dealership under PAI.
Prior to the partnership, PAI is the exclusive distributor of Tata Motors from India.
The latest truck dealership for Dongfeng is situated at the existing Tata Motors dealership in Cainta, Rizal, along Ortigas Avenue Extension.
