Hyundai PH breaks ground for new truck and bus dealership in Batangas City
A new Hyundai Truck and Buses dealership will soon be rising in Batangas. Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) president and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo and Shaw Automotive Resources, Inc. (SARI) president Felix Limcaoco III, along with other top executives, recently led the groundbreaking ceremony of Hyundai Trucks and Buses Batangas City.
The soon-to-rise dealership will be located along Diversion Road in Balagtas, Batangas City. It will help cater to the local businesses and establishments of the ever growing city and other nearby provinces in CALABARZON which require commercial vehicles (CV) for their needs, be it moving cargo, produce, or people.
“We are ready to address Batangas City’s growing mobility needs, especially those of its logistics and transport sectors,” said Limcaco.
“Batangas is in the heart of CALABARZON, and the Batangas port serves as the international gateway for industrial and commercial trade with the rest of the world, requiring vast potential for moving international cargo, local produce and people. With the valuable addition of Hyundai Trucks and Buses Batangas to our Hyundai CV dealer network, we are empowered to move the economy further,” said Agudo.
Last 2017, Hyundai trucks and buses experienced a sales growth by 883-percent from 2016. The segment is also poised to account for 10-percent of Hyundai's total vehicle sales in the next five years, aiming to double in scale by 2025.
Moving into 2018, HARI aims to continue exapanding its commercial vehicle by addressing the freight, payload, and mass mobility needs of enterprises in Metro Manila and the emerging growth centers in the regions.
