Yuchengco Group of Companies’ (YGC) House of Investments, Sojitz G Auto Philippines’ (SGAP) shareholder and now a dealer partner, broke ground for the construction of Geely Manila.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, House of Investments president and CEO Lorenzo Tan expressed YGC’s commitment with its partnership with Geely as it eyes to finish the new Geely dealership in Manila by April 2021.
“This event holds significance as it will be our first dealership undertaking despite the ongoing Covid pandemic,” he said.
“Today, almost 3 decades after we have refocused and strengthened our car business. We are adding to our portfolio by building a very modern Geely dealership to service more Filipino customers,” Tan added.
Also present in the event were SGAP president and CEO Mikihisa Takayama and SGAP Executive Vice President Yosuke Nishi.
“Consistent with our goal to expand SGAP’s dealer network and to reach more Geely customers nationwide, SGAP will continue to work hard for our customers. Our partnership with House of Investments is a significant step in realizing it despite the pandemic restrictions. The rise of Geely Manila is definitely something to look forward to,” Takayama said.
