Isuzu Philippines Corporation continues to expand its market reach in the country after recently opening its newest dealership in the heart of Pagbilao, Quezon. With it, Isuzu Pagbilao serves as the 4th newest dealership by IPC for 2018 and the 40th overall in the country.
Present during the opening ceremony were key individuals from Isuzu Motors Limited (IML), Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), Mitsubishi Motors Corp (MMC), and the Quezon provincial government.
These included Koji Hanawa, vice president for Aftersales at IPC, Koicho Ito, General Manager at IML, Marcel Tolentino, General Manager at Isuzu Pagbilao, Hajime Koso, president of IPC, Akira Odagaki, MMC Team Leader, and Sherrie Ann Palicpic, Mayor of Pagbilao.
Located at Lot 429, Brgy. Bukal along the busy Maharlika Road, Isuzu Pagbilao has a total lot area of 10,983 square meters. Meanwhile, the showroom measures 5,900 square meters and is capable of displaying a wide array of light commercial vehicles (LCVs) as well as heavy duty trucks.
The new showroom is also home to a huge service bay. It can service a total of seven LCVs and two HCVs. Moreover, it has a dome-type roof which makes for a more spacious and more modern-looking workspace.
For Hajime Koso, the opening of another Isuzu dealership will help maintain the company’s position in both LCV and truck sales.
“Our trucks hold the No. 1 position in total truck sales for 18 consecutive years; and this year, our total truck sales reached more than 47,000 units. For our LCV, we have sold more than 200,000 units. We also received numerous awards for both our LCV and CV. We aim to make Philippines an Isuzu country," said Koso.
Besides providing vehicle sales, as well as maintenance service, Isuzu Pagbilao also offers spare parts for the Crosswind, D-Max, mu-X and their line of heavy duty trucks.
