Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) welcomed Velocity Motors Sales Corporation to its growing dealer-partner network with a virtual contract-signing ceremony.
During the launch, IPC president Hajime Koso said that the latest partnership will give rise to the 47th dealership in the country—to be established in Subic—in pursuit of IPC's “Road to 50” dealerships around the country.
“IPC officially welcomes Velocity Motors Sales Corporation to our growing network. As you may all know, we are on our ‘road to 50 dealerships’ and today seals our 47th outlet nationwide. We have been wanting to further establish our presence in Zambales so thank you to Velocity Motors for partnering with us in capturing the market and being part of our expansion project. We are committed to continuously provide the best products and services in our new home in Subic,” Koso said.
Under the leadership of Velocity Motors Sales Corporation President and Director Jason Hao and Jeffrey Hao Lin, the company is known in northern coast of Central Luzon for expertise and achievements involving trucks and truck bodybuilding.
“Isuzu is without a doubt the undisputed number one brand for trucks and equally successful in the SUV and pickup segments. At Velocity Motors, we choose to invest only in the best and IPC is such in its circle of competence,” Hao said.
“Headed by Mr. Koso, we are confident that IPC will always choose the best balance of products and systems of operations for its clients, shareholders, and us dealers ensuring success for years to come.”
The soon-to-rise Isuzu Subic covers 3,799 square meters which will follow the Isuzu Outlet Standard (IOS), will house a display showroom, a customer mezzanine and parts warehouse.
While the main area has allocated 1,380 square meters for its service workshop for commercial and light commercial vehicles, Isuzu Subic will also have a dedicated 1,518-square meter off-site space with a preparation bay and paint booth for body repair to accommodate more vehicles, especially trucks, that require heavy-duty maintenance.
To note, IPC earned a Triple Star recognition from Isuzu Motors Limited in Japan in the 2020 Aftersales Awards. Aside from IPC, only four other distributors and dealers in the six regions worldwide was awarded with the top rating.
According to IPC, it is striving “to sustain this feat in the coming years and Isuzu Subic’s extended facility and increased capacity is just one of several action plans being taken to provide more access to the brand’s highest quality of after-sales servicing and parts fulfillment in the country.”
“Subic is primed to become the most competitive international services and logistic center in Southeast Asia, continuously leading to be one of the country’s major economic engines receiving numerous investment projects. Despite some unrealized revenue targets as a result of the pandemic, the city remains thriving especially its trading and shipment industries. Isuzu Subic is our response to the growing transportation requirements in Zambales most especially for trucks as IPC begun expansion so as to contribute to our customers’ success,” Koso added.
For his part, Hao vowed to “persevere and see to it that we will uphold Isuzu’s commitment.”
“Being in business for over 40 years, we have been witnesses to the cycles of industry and commerce in the region being in constant evolution, more so now in transition to the ‘new normal’. But we are in this for the long haul and believe that winners are tested and built through time,” he claimed.
