Subic Car body kits maker revs up exports

A MANUFACTURER of after-sales car body kits based in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone, northwest of Manila, said Friday that its export venture had reached full throttle, shipping out as much as 160 sets a month.

George Ramirez, president of McGram Fusion Inc., said the company had reached its export target volume for car body kits made of fiberglass, carbon fiber and kevlar.

Ramirez said that the kits were primarily for car owners who want to enhance the aesthetic features of their vehicles.

"All our products, including the restored vehicles refitted with some modern parts, are for export," he said. "The restored cars are either left-hand-drive vintage or right-hand drive brand new models. That means none of our products would be allowed to be registered or used in the Philippines."

Ramirez's announcement came just as Subic authorities decided to push for the revival of the racing circuit at the Freeport.

Armand Arreza, administrator of Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), said Ramirez's business would boost the revival of the Subic International Raceway.

"One of the reasons why Subic is a staple name in the racing industry is that we have one of the most difficult race tracks in the country," Arreza said.

The SBMA also said Finland-based Wartsila Land & Sea Academy Inc. would spend P6 million to expand its training facility in Subic.

WLSA plans to operate and manage a training center that would conduct maritime and power plant trainings.

In 2001, WLSA started operating in Subic its regional training and research center for the Asia-Pacific rim, offering specialized nautical engineering courses and product services for seafarers. Ronnel Domingo, with INQ7.net
