Solar Transport and Automotive Resources (STAR) Corp. recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Areza Motor Sales (AMS) which will pave the way for opening of a new BYD dealership in Batangas.

Present during the arrangement are Boyet Barraquia, AMS Sales Manager, Ceasar Gabriel Areza who is representing his father, Cesar Areza, AMS President, Mark Andrew Tieng, STAR Corp. Managing Director and Jose Paolo "Popo" Soriano, STAR Corp. General Manager.

"Not only can we offer our after sales services to customers in South Luzon areas, opening a new dealership is also a good indication of the people’s growing trust in the brand," said Soriano.

Soriano added that the company plans to have 6 or 7 more dealerships in North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao before the year ends.

Areza Motor Sales is a part of the Areza Group of Companies which operates automotive dealerships in Cavite, Batangas, Quezon, Mindoro and Palawan. AMS is also the owner of A2Z Driving Academy which was established last 2002.

BYD Batangas will become the third dealership in the country as well as STAR Corp.'s first provincial outlet. The new dealership is currently conducting its soft opening and is located at Barangay Concepcion, Batangas City. Full scale operations will commence by mid-February 2015.
