TRIESENBURG AUTO Corp. (TAC), the official local distributor of JAC passenger and light commercial vehicles in the country, opened three new dealerships in South Luzon and one in the Visayas.

The recent opening before yearend of the Alabang, Makati, and Sta. Rosa, Laguna facilities, plus one in Iloilo, brings the total dealership network of the brand to six. “Despite the very challenging year that it has been especially with the automotive industry, TAC continues to be optimistic and confident that the situation will improve in 2021,” said the company in a release.

JAC Motors Iloilo, owned and operated by Iloilo Great Cars Corp. with Peter Paul Yap as dealer principal, is located at Pison Avenue, Barangay San Rafael, Mandurriao, Iloilo City. The showroom measures 250 sq.m., and can also provide aftersales service. JAC Motors Iloilo can be reached through its Facebook page or 0908-888-8200.

The brand is also set to open JAC Motors Kawit, Cavite (on the Centennial Road) owned by Atty. Arlan Profeta’s APGS Auto Trading, and JAC Motors Bauan, Batangas (on the National Road in Barangay San Roque) operated by CESCO Offshore Construction of Fructuso Montano.

“JAC Motors wants to change how dealership business is run and give the opportunity to more budding entrepreneurs to own and operate their own JAC dealership more easily,” maintained TAC. “We are open to any entrepreneur who wants to put up their own car dealership business even if they don’t have an existing dealer network and even if they don’t have previous experience running a car dealership.”

The company also said that having a large showroom isn’t a requirement, which means smaller capitalization. “This is one of the largest expenses that prevent people’s entry into the dealership business — the huge expense on building a showroom. JAC believes that smaller showrooms can work as effectively as large showrooms. Strategic locations are important, but the traditional dealership setup is not essential.”
