Committed to extending Total Support to more Filipinos, Hino Motors Philippines (HMP), the exclusive distributor of Hino trucks and buses in the Philippines, strengthens its foothold in Southern Mindanao with the opening of its first dealership for the year.
The new dealership, Hino General Santos, is strategically located in Barangay Apopong along the General Santos City national highway. As a 3S dealership, it will offer service operations, sales and spare parts to help address the city’s needs in logistics, transportation and other industries.
Hino General Santos is the second dealership managed by Motormall Davao Corporation (MDC) after its dealership in Davao. Hino’s growing presence in highly urbanized areas in the country is a testament to its dedication to enhance the capabilities of different businesses by offering quality Hino trucks and fleet maintenance support.
“We have been looking forward to this day since the ground-breaking ceremony. We are confident that Hino General Santos will be another successful dealership under MDC’s supervision. As we open more dealerships this year, we will continue to work hand in hand with our dealer partners to ensure that our operations stand by our Total Support mantra,” said HMP President Hiroshi Aoki.
As a regional center for commerce and industry, General Santos is poised to become one of the fastest-growing cities in SOCCSKSARGEN. Known as the Tuna Capital of the Philippines, General Santos has seen an influx of investments in tourism and infrastructure because of its strategic location as a transhipment hub in the region. The city’s accessibility via air, land and water gives Hino the perfect opportunity to provide Filipinos with a reliable transport support system consisting of Hino vehicles.
“This is where Hino comes in the picture – we help boost the growth of the city’s economy by ensuring smooth logistical and transport systems. Like what we say in our tagline “Trucks and Buses that Do More,” Hino will always go the extra mile to offer innovative transport solutions to all Filipinos as we continually aim for a more connected and sustainable community,” said HMP Chairman Vicente T. Mills, Jr.
Known for providing safe, durable and reliable trucks, HMP has been assembling and exclusively distributing quality Hino trucks and buses in the Philippines for more than 40 years to meet the transport needs of businesses ranging from small and medium enterprises to big corporations.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony for Hino General Santos was led by Mr. Aoki, Mr. Mills and MDC executives Mr. Felipe S. Barroga, EVP/COO, Mr. Valentino L. Dionisio, AVP/General Manager and Mr. Fred Velasquez, Branch Manager, Hino General Santos.
