Japanese used machinery supplier AA Japan on Friday teamed up with Filanka Subic Corp. to help address the country’s development requirements in infrastructure, agriculture and energy by providing heavy-duty trucks and machinery.
Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority director Julius Escalona said during an inauguration ceremony the partnership would provide local entrepreneurs with much-needed heavy equipment units and related services.
AA Japan president and chief executive officer Hameed Ramzan said the Japanese supplier teamed up with Filanka because they “believe in Filanka’s proven track record in this industry.”
He said the partnership “will allow us to adapt our services and products to a broad customer base and develop multiple service offerings.”
“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,” he added.
The project is a $15-million partnership.
