The CDO dealership marks the company’s 9th dealership to open in the Philippines since 2013. The location chosen for the new dealership is strategic, and it targets CDO the country’s 10th most populous city and the economic hub of Region 10. The area also has a pretty large economy and is sustainable for future car buyers. Thanks to its location, the dealership will also be able to service and cater to the needs of buyers from the northern Mindanao area, such as Misamis Occidental, Bukidnon, and Lanao del Norte.
Greencars Mindanao Corporation’s (GMC) chairman of the board Antonio De La Fuente said that the opening of the new dealership marks the return of VW to the area. The German automaker already had a claim in the area 40 years ago but since had to pull out. The new dealership marks the company’s return to CDO.
GMC has been engaged in the sale of new and used vehicles, while Volkswagen, on the other hand, is part of AC industrials (ACI) of Ayala Corporation. ACI owns distribution rights to brands such as Honda, Isuzu, Maxus, and Kia. The combination of both companies for the new dealership Volkswagen dealership makes a potent combination for Mindanao buyers since both companies are experienced in their respective fields.
