Suzuki Philippines prepares its dealerships to be S.M.A.R.T as it resumes operation

Manila, Philippines, May 8, 2020-- After almost a month-long halt in dealership operations, Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPH), the pioneer compact car distributor in the country, has found the opportunity to reach and provide their customers with service through reopening some of its auto stores. And to take precautionary measures that will avoid the spread of the virus among its employees and customers, SPH made sure to set forth Dealership Reopening Guidelines.  As of May 4, out of 79 SPH dealerships located in different parts of the Philippines,17 dealerships resumed operations. The following dealerships are: Bohol, Cagayan De Oro, Calbayog, Dumaguete, General Santos, SM General Santos, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Isabela, Kalibo, La Union, Naga, Ormoc, Ozamiz, Palawan, Roxas, and Tacloban.  Despite the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) being lifted in the communities where SPH has decided to reopen, the auto company takes into paramount consideration the safety of its employees and customers. Hence, to prioritize this, SPH introduced “New Normal” Business Operations with to-do’s that are easy to remember: S.M.A.R.T. Sanitize Thoroughly, Maintain Safe Distancing, Adhere Strictly, Reach People Online, and Think Positive. Those who are looking into visiting Suzuki dealerships are sure to expect that these guidelines will be followed and not only seen through signages, but in actuality. Sanitizing Thoroughly will include requiring employees to sanitize areas in the store more often than usual particularly workplaces and customer lounges at least every two hours. Sanitation Stations will also be available in environments such as the reception, negotiation tables, cashier windows, and service areas. Vehicles will be sanitized in the shops as well upon arrival from their designated distributor, before and after release for test drives, and to customers who will purchase them. To Maintain Safe Distancing, lesser vehicles will be displayed in the showrooms and meeting attendees per transaction will be reduced to keep negotiation tables uncrowded. Wearing of masks, body temperature check upon entering dealerships are to be Adhered Strictly by employees daily. For customers, home delivery of their fully sanitized vehicle is encouraged. Shall they choose to pick their vehicle up instead, they are encouraged to come alone for the handover ceremony. To lessen face-to-face interaction, useful and adequate information, appointment bookings, test drive requests and applications, and other transactions will be available digitally as Reaching People Online will be beneficial for both employees and customers.  Exercising these guidelines is a leap towards prevention against COVID-19, but aside from a physical course of action, SPH understands that Thinking Positively is equally essential. Suzuki Philippines urges the community to distance ourselves from negativity, stay healthy and exercise regularly, and foster positive energy amid these challenging times. Suzuki Philippines believes that by staying S.M.A.R.T, we are able to experience the Suzuki Way of Life! despite being faced with obstacles and eventually overcoming them and rising above the situation.  About Suzuki Philippines Incorporated  Suzuki Philippine Incorporated is a wholly-owned Japanese multinational firm highly recognized in the automotive industry.

From loom to zoom: Suzuki celebrates 100 years

From loom to zoom: Suzuki celebrates 100 years

Manila, Philippines – Suzuki Philippines Incorporated recently announced that its parent Suzuki Motor Corporation (SUZUKI), Japan’s fourth largest automaker, is proudly celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.  SUZUKI, known as a manufacturer of superior-quality motorcycles, automobiles, and outboard motors, started as a loom weaving company called Suzuki Loom Works in 1902 in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan. Founded by accomplished innovator and inventor Michio Suzuki in answer to a deep sense of mission, the company was built to help the Enshu District weaving industry and the other businesses in the city. Its initial business was providing loom weaving equipment for Japan’s massive pre-war silk industry.  Michio Suzuki’s focus on listening to customers' needs and the value of hard work--these “monozukuri” or manufacturing principles hinged on craftsmanship--enabled Suzuki to be successful in this initial field. A famous quote attributed to the illustrious founder also encapsulated SUZUKI’s guiding principles, “If the customer needs something, we must do whatever we can to respond. Hard work guarantees success.”  In March 1920, the company was reorganized and incorporated with Mr. Suzuki as president of Suzuki Loom Manufacturing Company, the precursor of the modern-day SUZUKI. Ultimately, Suzuki's success in the looms business and its principles led the company to diversify into another industry that was crucial to the advancement of Japan: the motor vehicle transport industry.  Enshu winds and the rise of the motorized two wheels: Suzuki motorcycles  The development of Suzuki motorcycles started with an inspiration. Managing Director of Suzuki, Shunzo Suzuki decades back was riding his bicycle against a headwind blowing along the coastal pine forest of the Enshu Region when the thought of a motorized bicycle formed in his mind. His thoughts revolved around building a motorized bicycle that anyone can easily handle and ride. In 1954, a motorcycle with a 90cc engine made its debut -- the Suzuki Colleda. The Colleda embodied what the company valued most in producing motorcycles: easy to ride, strong, and long lasting.  The rise of the motorized four wheels: Suzuki automobiles.  This principle of “monozukuri” embraced by Michio Suzuki and his company fueled his long-cherished development of automobiles but was unfortunately pushed aside due to the onset of the Second World War. After the war and eighteen years after the initial development began, the automobile development program was finally reinstated and work began in earnest with the determined words of the founder, “We have got to do what we have got to do. The value of the efforts will be that much greater if we push on in spite of limited money and resources.”  Finally in 1955, the passion, the craftsmanship and a deep understanding of what customers desired was realized in Japan’s first automobile the “Suzulight”.  Fast forward to today, the dream of Michio Suzuki has continued to fuel the company with the launch of many products that more and more people come to love and cherish.  From loom to outboard motors, the rise of no wheels: Suzuki marine engine.  Suzuki’s reputation as an ingenious and quality manufacturer of small reliable combustion engines eventually led the company to supply another transportation platform, the outboard motor engine for marine transport in 1965 when the “ultimate 4-stroke outboard” was launched. Its global reputation soared even further as the engine became known for better acceleration, better fuel efficiency, and better value.  Suzuki Philippines 35th year in the Philippines  Suzuki is also in its 35th year in the Philippines with the local subsidiary as the only integrated company carrying Motorcycle, Automobile and Outboard Motor products in Asia.  With 68 dealership groups and a network of 3079 shops, Suzuki Motorcycle has successfully dominated the underbone market with the Smash, touted as the number one selling Underbone in the Leisure category and the Raider R150 acknowledged as the “Underbone King” for being the highest selling model in the Underbone Sport category. Both models have sold more than double their competitors over the years.  Solidifying its presence with a 21.17% increase covering all quarters in 2019, Suzuki Automobile has steadily captured market share. Jumping three places to now becoming 5th in the Philippine market, the boost in sales was the realization of the company’s aggressive efforts throughout 2019, leading to top models Ertiga, Vitara and Celerio becoming some of the market’s most enjoyed vehicles of the year.  The newest addition to Suzuki Philippines is the Outboard Motor or Marine business. With 6 dealerships, it has achieved 205% sales growth in 2019. The division's Sales and After Sales Teams have left competitors continuously turning heads in the business through excellent service to marine customers.  Here’s to the next 100-years as Suzuki continues to create and innovate for the satisfaction of its customers in the Philippines and all over the world.  We will continue to strive and take part in the community as we are currently experiencing a major speed bump worldwide. As Team Suzuki, our participation goes beyond not just by producing reliable products but being able to assist in continuing the way of life of our people. Stay calm. Stay safe. Stay home.  For more information, visit www.suzuki.com.ph or join our community: Suzuki Motorcycles www.facebook.com/suzukimotorcyclesphilippines Suzuki Automobile www.facebook.com/suzukiphilippines Suzuki Marine www.facebook.com/suzukimarineph   About Suzuki Philippines Incorporated  Suzuki Philippines Incorporated is a wholly-owned Japanese multinational firm highly recognized in the motoring industry.
