The surest indicator of growth in any rural area is industrialization; one of the metrics being an increased need for mobility, particularly for small-to-medium enterprises that grow beyond their previous statuses.
In the city of San Pablo, Laguna, one of those indicators – the presence of a FOTON dealership – was put into place in March, 2012. Aided by FOTON’s growing reputation for durability in Metro Manila and other provinces, clients started flocking to Foton San Pablo’s doors for a taste of FOTON’s quality; now becoming legendary in its segment and recognized even by government agencies requiring affordable yet dependable workhorses for their daily operations.
As a result of San Pablo’s warm welcome for FOTON, FOTON San Pablo generated such an impressive performance even before its first full year of operations to be awarded the Dealer Rookie of the Year for their 2012 performance. As further proof of the San Pableños’ trust in FOTON vehicles, FOTON San Pablo bested 21 other dealerships nationwide to win Dealer of the Year for their overall performance in 2014.
This success didn’t happen by accident. FOTON San Pablo takes their business to heart, as they aim to make every dream a reality, and want to be part of the success of their clients. They have a sales force that is trained to give the best solutions to the concerns of their customers. The personal touch is valued greatly by clients in rural areas; making them feel just as important to their dealer as a Manileño would be to a Manila dealer. FOTON’s Total Care package – which empowers the client with the best possible ownership experience, among its many other facets – is practiced consistently and with equal sincerity across FOTON’s dealership network.
FOTON San Pablo assures its clients of immediate accommodation for almost any sort of maintenance or repair work, courtesy of the six bays in their service area. On top of that, FOTON San Pablo’s sales and service team both provide the kind of care and attention to which some of their customers can attest:
“Pag pasok mo palang, approachable sila at ino-offer sa iyo ang the best!” says husband and wife, Rey and Nenita Mercado, Pepsi Distributors in the Quezon Province area. “Kahit hindi kami ang pumunta sa showroom, inaasikaso nila ang mga empleyado namin tulad ng pagaasikaso nila sa amin” This may be why they continued to purchase vehicles from the FOTON San Pablo Dealership. Among the vehicles they have purchased are a Tornado 2 truck, 3 units of the Tornado 2.5 and 1 unit of the FOTON Thunder pick-up. “Pag nagustuhan mo ang service, ang tao (personnel in the dealership) at ang unit (vehicles), irerefer mo talaga sa iba at uulit ka. Dati, kami lang ang naka FOTON dito, ngayon, marami na kaming FOTON na nakakasalubong sa daan. Masaya kami na sinubukan namin ang FOTON.”
Another client of FOTON San Pablo, Mr. Arcadio Gapangcada Jr., Presdent and CEO of Benacorn Corporation shares that he gained confidence in FOTON Trucks when he observed the presence of a great number of FOTON vehicles now on the road. “I see them all over the streets and Highways in San Pablo City and in the provinces of Laguna, Quezon and Batangas, so I decided to buy one for my daughter’s requirement who is engaged in the poultry business, a breeder of San Miguel Corporation. I would say that it is one of the best decisions I made when I got the truck from FOTON San Pablo. With the good experience I had with the FOTON vehicle, I decided to get another truck from FOTON San Pablo for the use of our new company, Benacorn Corporation. I got a 6 Wheeler ETX HURRICANE Dropside body which we are using to haul corn silage, sugarcane tops, Napier grass, spent grain and many others. It was a wise decision, since the truck incurs less maintenance cost and fuel consumption is very efficient, another worry-free vehicle since day one.” Now that their new manufacturing plant is ready for full blast operations, Mr. Gapangcada ordered another FOTON Hurricane Dump truck to augment their present number of units. They are also looking forward to purchasing more trucks from FOTON San Pablo.
With the quality of vehicles and customer service delivered by FOTON San Pablo, it won’t be a surprise to see the FOTON brand become a household name in the south, where key developments are being eyed. Through FOTON San Pablo’s excellence, FOTON will surely change the business landscape in Laguna, and possibly the nearby provinces.
