SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — AA Japan, one of the biggest and top suppliers of used heavy machinery around the world, officially opened here on Friday its first facility in the Philippines.

The opening marked its business expansion and full service in the country in partnership with a local automotive trader and dealer, Filanka Subic Corp.


Officials of AA Japan said the exclusive partnership with Filanka hopes to address the country’s continuous development in the field of infrastructure, agriculture and energy, as they demand high-quality, heavy-duty trucking and transportation, and heavy equipment services.


“[The partnership] will allow us to adapt our services and products to a broad customer base and develop multiple service offerings,“ Hameed Ramzan, AA Japan president and CEO, said in a statement.

Filanka and AA Japan officials said they would continue to dominate the market with their wide array of assets and services, including steering wheel conversion, reconditioning, repair, leasing, documentation and sales, and 150 units of in-demand, high-quality trucks and heavy equipment.

Ramzan also said that this development would also spur economic growth in Subic.

“We aim to boost our network here, which may, in turn, strengthen the industry in this part of the country, as well as provide livelihood opportunities to nearby communities,” Ramzan said.

The facility here is expected to eventually hire up to 200 people. /atm
