SBMC Begins Suv Exports to Africa

Subic Bay Motors Corporation (SBMC), one of the leading auctioneers of used-motor vehicles, has started penetrating the international market by initially exporting 20 units of sports utility vehicles (SUV) and pick-ups to Sudan, Africa.

SBMC General Manager Ben Perez attributed the success of this new business endeavor to the efforts of the company's Japanese partner Komei Toya of Azumaya Tohin Seisakusho Co., Ltd..

Perez said prospects for exports of imported SUVs, pick-ups, trucks and heavy equipment to Africa, Vietnam, Dubai, Iran, Iraq and other Middle East countries are now possible.

He particularly cited the purchase order received by SBMC from Ranhill Engineers and Contractors Sdn. Bhd. of Malaysia after six months of intensive international marketing campaign.

Ranhill is Malaysia's premier engineering corporation focusing on essential industries such as oil and gas, power, water and infrastructure development.
According to Perez, SBMC is also in the final negotiation stage with Bitumart International Asia Co., Limited of Bangkok, Thailand to supply 20 units of Toyota hi-lux pick-ups, 12 units of Isuzu 10-wheeler Tractor Heads and 12 units low-bed and high-bed trailers.

SBMC is being represented by its business partner, Mr. Takashi Morinaga who is a sub-contractor of Penta Ocean Group doing the P3.22-billion Subic Port Modernization Project and Taisei Corporation implementing the Iloilo International Airport Project.

Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) administrator Alfredo C. Antonio expressed full support to SBMC's new business endeavor in exporting used vehicles.

Antonio lauded their efforts to develop expertise of Filipino mechanics and auto industry workers to produce export quality automotive products.

"It is the earnest desire of SBMA to support this type of activity so that the rest of the world would really see that the Filipinos can be great and we are hoping there will be a lot more of these export quality products to reach the global market," he noted
