United Asia Automotive Group Inc. (UAAGI), the official distributor of Foton vehicles in the Philippines, has officially added Foton Quezon Avenue to its list of dealerships in the Philippines.
Foton Quezon Avenue is the 19th showroom of the brand in the Philippines and is part of its continuous expansion in the country. The latest addition to the Foton network is operated by the Manindra Automotive Corporation headed by Amando San Juan, Carmen San Juan and Leo San Juan. Manindra Automotive has been a strong player in the automotive industry. They own and operate multiple dealerships around the country under two other automotive brands. UUAGI and Manindra will work hand in hand to cater high quality commercial vehicles to the Philippine market and to accomplish Foton’s goal to be the top choice for commercial vehicles for both business and leisure use. With an excellent mix of passenger vehicles, light-duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks and heavy equipment, Foton has constantly grown its brand reach throughout the years.
Rommel Sytin, president of UAAGI, expressed his confidence in the brand and in the new partnership. “The first quarter of the year has proven very fruitful for us. First with the opening of the new assembly plant in Clark and now another milestone, the opening of the new Quezon Avenue Showroom. With the support of the whole Quezon Avenue team, we are confident that the Quezon Avenue showroom will be a significant contributor to the brand and the company’s growth,” he said.
The Manindra Automotive head also expressed their confidence in the new partnership. Leo San Juan was quoted as saying the Foton line-up of passenger cars and light-duty trucks, in his opinion, was the perfect choice for the company’s expansion plans. Amando San Juan also expressed high hope for the new endeavor stating that his group welcomes the opportunity to be part of the Foton network. “We welcome the opportunity to represent the No. 1 Chinese automotive brand in the country today. We look forward to working with Mr. Sytin and the entire UAAGI organization, who we feel are just as committed as we are to our vision.”
