AS a symbol of continued commitment and partnership to provide only world-class and quality vehicles that are reliable and easy to maintain, Mitsubishi Motors Phils. Corp. (MMPC) said it recently turned over to ARC Refreshments Corp. a fleet of new Fuso trucks and Mitsubishi L200 single-cab vehicles.
ARC is a Filipino-owned company engaged in the beverage business. It manufactures and distributes RC Cola, and also carries Fruit Soda Orange, Juicy Lemon and Arcy’s Rootbeer.
The turnover ceremony, held at the ARC plant in Antipolo City, was led by MMPC Executive Vice President for Marketing Junya Masuda and ARC Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Gerry Garcia.
MMPC said Masuda expressed gratitude for ARC’s trust and continuous confidence on Mitsubishi and Fuso products, adding that Garcia was “very much delighted” over the fleet of vehicles delivered.
MMPC said Garcia “recognizes that investing on Mitsubishi vehicles and Fuso trucks is essential for the success of any business.”
The carmaker said that with the nature of ARC’s business, it is crucial that it invests on reliable vehicles that will be very helpful in meeting its delivery targets and requirements. The decision to invest on additional brand-new units was triggered by ARC’s expansion and growing demand for its products. With this, ARC could not afford any downtime caused by frequent delivery truck breakdowns, according to MMPC.
It added that since 2012, ARC had entrusted all its vehicle needs to MMPC. To date, 168 Fuso trucks and other Mitsubishi vehicles have already been purchased by ARC from MMPC. More than 50 percent of this figure accounts for Fuso trucks.
