General Santos City—Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation today inaugurated its newest dealership in General Santos City, Southern Mindanao. The dealership is a complete facility offering services for vehicles, spare parts and accessories sale, as well as repair and maintenance services.
General Santos is strategically located within the trading and economic center of SOCKSARGEN, composed of South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos, the latter being the fastest growing in Region XII. The presence of major economic infrastructure support facilities provides the city an edge in terms of comparative advantage due to its standards that are comparable to international benchmarks. The establishment of Toyota General Santos makes Toyota’s products and services more accessible to its customers in the area, with the dealer facility located along the National Highway, City Heights near Mabuhay Road, right at the heart of the city.
In a statement, TMP President Hiroshi Ito expressed, “Given this positive business and economic environment, and a reliable team, headed by Mr. Jose A. Lim, III, President and CEO, I am confident that TGS will achieve its business targets, and its goal of serving more happy Toyota customers. As the newest member of Toyota Team Philippines, I would like to share with you the message of TMC President Watanabe in Toyota’s Global Vision 2020: That each member of Toyota all contribute to the success of Toyota and customer appreciation. Rather than being measured by numbers or quantities, Toyota wishes to be seen as a company friendly to all. If each Toyota unit worldwide, including its dealers, strives to become the most admired in their own region, then one day, we will collectively become the most admired in the world.”
The facility stands in a 5,000 square meter property which features a 5-vehicle display showroom, information counter, service and parts counter, finance and customer relations offices. Its service bays include four (4) quick service stalls, 12 general job bays, and nine (9) body and paint stalls.
Toyota General Santos is the 27th Toyota outlet nationwide, and is the third dealership in Mindanao. Together with Toyota Davao and Toyota Cagayan De Oro, Toyota Motor Philippines will further strengthen their leadership in this area, and serving its Mindanao customers better.
