Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI), the official distributor of Changan vehicles in the country, broke ground on its future national headquarters at the Auto Resources Center (ARC) in Calamba City, Laguna last May 17, 2022.
About The Changan (CMPI) National Headquarters
The all-new CMPI National Headquarters is envisioned to be the flagship of operations and training hub for the brand in the Philippines.
Soon to rise in the 20-hectare property of ARC is a 2,390-square-meter predominantly glass and aluminum structure, which the brand claims is a symbol of its bid to establish itself as a premium, future-forward mobility manufacturer in the Philippine market.
The entire complex, inspired by Changan International Corporation’s (CIC) global corporate identity, will house a modern showroom, full-service workshops, offices, and training facilities for CMPI’s Sales, After Sales, Customer Relations, and Marketing personnel.
The groundbreaking event was attended by Mayor-Elect of Calamba City, Hon. Ross Rizal, City of Calamba Provincial Engineer, Mister Pablo Del Mundo, Barangay Chairman Aigrette Lajara, Councilor Rajay Lajara, Metriccon Co, Inc. President, Mister Joseph Alarilla, Aura Builders General Manager, Engineer Eduardo De Perio Teaño and the CMPI and Pan Asia Property Management Teams headed by its President and CEO, Miss Maria Fe Perez-Agudo.
Automotive manufacturers opening up headquarters locally is always seen as a positive, not only does it give more jobs and promote the industry, but it also signals the brand’s intent to further the Philippine automotive sector.
