Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, July 25, 2022 — The Japanese distributor of the popular Canter inaugurated its new 3S (Sales, Service, and Spare Parts) outlet in Cagayan de Oro City (CDO) last Monday, 25 July 2022. FUSO Cagayan de Oro will now address the customers’ requirements by providing sales and service support to further strengthen the FUSO’s presence in Mindanao. The new outlet is a great addition to the existing network of FUSO dedicated dealerships operating under Fast Autoworld Philippines Corporation (FAPC) — an authorized dealer of Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP).
Strategically positioned in Purok 8-A, San Pedro, Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City, 9000 Misamis Oriental this makes it very accessible to commercial, logistics, and automotive areas in the city center. FUSO CDO is equipped with new equipment, three (3) commercial vehicle showroom displays, service workshops, and skilled sales and aftersales team to offer support to all FUSO customers in the region. FAPC has been representing FUSO in the Visayas and Mindanao with 35 years of experience.
Besides being known as a spot for relaxing activities, Cagayan de Oro is also tagged as the City of Golden Friendship because of the utmost hospitality and smiles of the people of CDO, or what we called Kagay-anons who offer a warm welcome to tourists. It is no wonder the city has become a destination for foreign visitors.
Cagayan de Oro City is experiencing rapid economic development in Mindanao. Surrounded by commerce, trade, information technology, and automotive businesses, CDO is a growth driver of Mindanao as the city continues to grow.
“FUSO as one of the leading brands in the trucks and bus industry, will be relentless in giving customers products that radiate durability, reliability, and sustainability and offer the best value for money. The commercial vehicle market is indeed evolving, but given the persistent efforts, we are optimistic that FAPC and SFP will remain as a force to be reckoned within the years to come.” Mr. John Michael Ignacio, Manager – Vehicle Sales, SFP, explained while referring to FUSO’s commitment to provide high-quality products and services.
Speaking on the inauguration, Mr. Noriyuki Sekita, Executive Vice President – Sales and Marketing, SFP said, “FUSO has continued to expand its network since establishing its operations. Our on-going plans for dealer expansion will enable us to serve our current and new customers better, to deliver the standards of high-quality service moving forward. These are very inspiring times for FUSO, and we are very proud to be part of this journey with our dealer partners.”
FAPC AVP for Operations, Mr. Dax Albarece thanked SFP and partners who contributed to the success of inauguration of FUSO CDO, “We thank SFP for giving us the opportunity to serve as a FUSO dealership in Northern Mindanao. We thrive where the FUSO brand is needed, and we embark on this journey of service for our valued customers. Congratulations, FUSO Cagayan de Oro!”
FAPC has been one of the key dealer partners of SFP to support the brand and has an impressive business portfolio in automotive operations. FUSO has already established presence in Visayas and Mindanao provinces including Cebu, Davao, and South Cotabato.
