Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), the Philippines’ official distributor of Hyundai vehicles, has partnered with the Areza Group to put up the Hyundai Trucks & Buses dealership in Calamba, Laguna, the groundbreaking ceremony of which was held recently.
Expected to open in June 2017, Hyundai Trucks & Buses Calamba is the latest in a partnership that HARI has forged with the Areza Group since 2002, when the latter became the first to put up a Hyundai dealership in South Luzon a year after the former was appointed as the official distributor of Hyundai passenger cars in the Philippines by Hyundai Motor Company. With the recent groundbreaking of Hyundai Trucks & Buses Calamba, the Areza Group has become the pioneer dealers of Hyundai commercial vehicles in the country.
The establishment of Hyundai Trucks & Buses Calamba is also perfect for HARI and the Areza Group since the city is the richest city in the CALABARZON region and has become the location of numerous large logistic companies, agri-based industries, electronic companies, BPO firms, food processing plants, and major real estate developments. Incidentally, Laguna also happens to be the home of of the Hyundai Logistic Center and the Hyundai Assembly Center.
"With the Areza Group’s vast network of businesses deeply rooted here, I know that Hyundai is in very good hands,” said HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo. "Together, we are stepping up to be the lifetime partner of Filipino businessmen as we open new venues for driving the ascent of the Philippine economy."
