Scania, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of buses and trucks for heavy transport applications as well as marine and industrial power engines, officially opened its showroom and service center last week to provide the local market with the kind of service excellence Scania is known for worldwide.
Located at 1132 EDSA Balintawak, Quezon City, the showroom is one of the largest in the country taking up an area of more than 1,000 square meters. Amenities include a display area for eight trucks, service area with three bays, a service reception area, assembly area, a stock room, tools room and a driver’s lounge. The showroom also serves as Scanias corporate office in the country.
“Scania builds some of the finest trucks, buses and engines in the world. Then we back them up with services that deliver value, reliability and high uptime – giving you an excellent return on your investment. Scania services help you grow your business and keep it moving forward,” said James Armstrong, managing director Scania Southeast Asia.
“All of our technicians have been sent to Malaysia for training and we strictly adhere to all of Scania’s maintenance and service protocols to make sure the trucks of our customers are in perfect running condition. We also have a large inventory of parts to reduce downtime for our customers,” said Leilani Lim-Tan, vice president of BJ Mercantile, Inc., the official sales & services dealer partner of Scania for the Philippines.
“Our highly professional teams are there to offer you valuable advice on preventive maintenance, maintenance intervals, on associated parts, and on doing the right thing at the right time. It’s this professional advice – together with the right maintenance and parts – that can make all the difference and prevent unexpected, costly and time-consuming mechanical failures,” Leilani Lim-Tan added.
Currently on display are the G-Series Trucks, which brings a new level of comfort to drivers engaged in long-haulage, distribution and virtually all types of construction applications. These are perfect for petroleum haulers and for those in the construction and mining business.
Soon, Scania will also sell generators for industrial use with power ranging from 250 to 800 KVA. These come in two versions, the open and the canopy type, both of which delivers outstanding fuel economy and uptime.
