BYD expands operation in Batangas
Solar Transport and Automotive Resources, Corp. (STAR Corp.), the exclusive distributor of BYD vehicles in the Philippines, recently opened its new dealership in Concepcion, Batangas which includes full servicing operations and another showroom in San Pascual, Batangas.
“We are looking forward to seeing more and more BYD vehicles in the country. With a growing dealer network such as the Areza Group of Companies that has more than 25 years of expertise in automotive, our customers can rest assured that their BYD will always be in great shape,” said Mr. Mark Andrew Tieng, STAR Corp. managing director.
The Areza Group of Companies, under the leadership of its chairman Cesar V. Areza, has been a longtime distributor of automobile and motorcycle products in the provinces of Laguna, Batangas, Quezon and Cavite. “We welcome this partnership with the Areza group, which we hope will contribute to furthering the awareness and acceptance of the BYD brand in territories the Areza Group is present in,” Tieng said.
The Areza Group are currently expanding the after-sales service reach of BYD outside of Metro Manila, especially in the Calabarzon area and its neighboring provinces. BYD Batangas will cater to the motoring needs of the growing industrialized zone of Batangas as well as marketing and selling BYD vehicles in other provinces such as Laguna, Quezon and Cavite.
“We are pleased and excited to be part of BYD in the Philippines. When we learned that successful American business magnate Warren Buffet owns 10 percent of the car company, we happily said yes to STAR Corp.,” said Areza.
