Suzuki Philippines Inc. recently opened two dealership branches in Cebu City – the Suzuki Auto South Cebu, and the SM Seaside City Satellite.
Last year’s rapid expansion of the automobile brand saw more than 10 new dealership launches, which the company hopes to top this 2016, Suzuki Philippines said in a statement.
Both owned and managed by Sakura Autoworld, the two new sites inaugurated on February 15, 2016 intend to spread the Suzuki Way of Life to more motorists in the booming city of Cebu.
The opening ceremonies were led by Suzuki Philippines President Mr. Hiroshi Suzuki, General Manager for Automobile Mr. Shuzo Hoshikura, Sakura Autoworld President Jose Daniel Borromeo and General Manager Marco Gabriel Borromeo.
Suzuki Auto South Cebu, a 3S (sales, spare parts and services) shop, is located at the commercial area of South Road Properties, Mambaling Road, Cebu City. It started its sales operations as early as June 2013 and the dealership construction was completed in February 2015.
The Suzuki SM Seaside City Satellite showroom is inside the SM Seaside City. The showroom began operating in January.
With the rapid economic growth of Cebu, Suzuki’s twin launches here are well timed and well placed.
Suzuki Philippines General Manager Shuzo Hoshikura said in a statement: “It cannot be denied that the thriving economy here is the main reason why we established Suzuki Auto South Cebu and the SM Seaside City Satellite showroom. These give us the opportunity to proffer the Suzuki Way of Life to motorists in Cebu, most especially since we are now in the newest attraction of the City – SM Seaside City, the third largest shopping mall in the country.”
Suzuki Philippines, a leading manufacturer of mini and compact cars in the country, achieved its massive sales growth last year through successive dealership openings.
“We are proud to say that we ended with a huge 52% year-on-year growth last year, kicked in by massive and successful dealership and satellite openings. Not resting on our laurels, we are starting the new year right by inaugurating two newest additions to our growing network of dealerships, and we’re very happy that it’s happening here in Cebu,” Hoshikura said.
