Chevrolet Davao opens modern service center-A A +A
Saturday, July 14, 2012
THE all-new Chevrolet Davao Service Center, sitting on a 400-square-meter lot along J.P. Laurel Avenue in Lanang, formally opened its doors to Dabawenyos in a simple blessing Friday headed by Chevrolet Davao president and chief executive officer Edgar Ang.
Ang along with The Covenant Company Corporation Inc. (TCCCI) national after sales manager Rose Demalanta spearheaded the ceremonial cutting of ribbon as Chevrolet Davao after sales manager Arthur Tungol led the tour of the modern facility beefed up by a huge general service section, quick service area, parts warehouse, top-of-the line tools and equipment and a receiving area, among others.
TCCCI technical assistant center manager Jose Miguel Bollozol showed the media the newest technology available at the service center: the multiple diagnostic interface or MDI.
Bolloloz, who had been trained in Japan and Thailand, said The MDI is capable of simulating function inside and around the car and in the engine.
"It will determine if any part of the car is malfunctioning or not. It guides you and pinpoints or narrows the problem area. It works when it is attached to the laptop," Bolloloz said.
Chevrolet Davao vice president for operations Tobi Ang, in an interview with Sun.Star Davao, said the facility can accommodate up to 60 cars at the same time.
"Since 2009, we have already noted the steady volume of sales and increase in the number of cars that we service. Our old service center won't be enough for the growing volume of cars we will be servicing what with the arrival of the Colorado and other new models coming before the year ends," Ang said.
"This bigger and better service center will meet the demand of different type of service every Chevy user needs," he added.
TCCCI business development district supervisor Christopher David Yu, meanwhile, lauded Chevrolet Davao for expanding their business in this part of the country.
"We are very happy that Chevrolet Davao is aligned with our business development plans for the entire Philippines. We are happy to announce that three more exciting cars namely the Captiva, Sonic and Trailblazer will be open to the market before the end of the year," Yu said.
In showing their appreciation to Chevrolet Davao, Yu together with Demalanta presented the father-and-son tandem of Edgar and Tobi Ang a limited edition of a miniature of the Stingray.
TCCI assistant vice president for service Lito Landicho also bared the exciting promo benefits waiting for every Chevy user who will avail of the Car Care Clinic 2012, an after-sales program of Chevron Davao. Benefits include up to 50 percent discount in parts, 20 percent discount on labor, precise vehicle diagnosis through the MDI for newer Chevrolet models or the Tech II equipment for older versions of Chevy cars and free 16 point vital system check-up.
