    The creation of the newly-completed Isuzu Subic started with the groundbreaking ceremonies in August 2019 followed by the virtual contract signing in May last year.

    The 5,000 square-meter sales facility — which is part of the “IPC’s Road to 50” target — is equipped with a showroom that can fit five vehicles and a service area that has the capacity to accommodate eight light commercial vehicles and two commercial vehicles.

    During the ceremony, outgoing IPC President Hajime Koso expressed delight over the opening of the Isuzu Subic. The aforementioned dealership inauguration will probably be the last under Koso's term in the country.

With our ever reliable and durable trucks, businesses in the area can count on Isuzu to power their logistical requirements. With our dealer principal’s commitment to providing utmost customer service, we can assure the province of a long-lasting relationship with our customers moving forward,” Koso said.
