Isuzu Philippines holds groundbreaking for new Cagayan facility
RESPONDING to the growing transportation requirements of Northern Luzon, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has started initiatives meant to expand its reach in the region through the future opening of a new facility.
Set to stand on Iguig, Cagayan is the new Isuzu Tuguegarao satellite office, which is forecast to supplement the operations of Isuzu dealerships in Bulacan, Isabela, Cabanatuan and Meycauayan. To mark the site of the future facility, IPC executives led by President Hajime Koso, Isuzu Tuguegarao principal Dra. Zinnia Domingo - Perez, and Iguig Mayor Ferdinand Trinidad held a groundbreaking ceremony on July 20, 2016.
“The thriving commercial activities in northern Philippines, most especially in the Cagayan region, equate to heightened demand for logistics and transportation solutions. We in Isuzu Philippines realize the potential for growth that partnerships with local business will bring to the communities in the area, and the opening of a new facility here seeks to ensure this progress,” Koso said.
The new Isuzu Tuguegarao satellite office will be built on a 5,000-square-meter property. Its highly trained personnel can accommodate sales inquiries while its workshop can perform select services for several vehicles including trucks. When completed, this new Isuzu Tuguegarao satellite will be bigger than the current office.
“We are extremely optimistic at the prospects of Isuzu Tuguegarao as the Isuzu brand commands a following among many Cagayanos. Isuzu vehicles’ durability, reliability and fuel efficiency should ably serve the needs of consumers in the region,” Domingo said.
