() - June 17, 2009 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Dreamco Automobile Company Incorporated (DREAMCO) recently rolled out its initial lineup of JMC light commercial vehicles – 4- and 6-wheeler light trucks – at its assembly plant in Laguna.

Jiangling Motors Company (JMC) is one of the largest automotive brands in China with an annual production of 100,000 units. It exports its line of American and Japanese licensed vehicles to more than 60 countries worldwide in regions such as the Middle East, North Africa, Central and South America, Russia, and Southeast Asia. JMC has also displayed its pickup trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicle lineups at the Frankfurt, Russia, Egypt, and Paris motorshows.

The partnership of DREAMCO with Jiangling-Isuzu Motors Company Limited and Jiangling Motors Import & Export Ltd. marks a commitment to providing excellent automotive products. This is supported by an extensive, nationwide dealership network and aftersales support for long-term reliability and lower owning and operating costs.

In the mid-1980s, JMC took the lead in introducing internationally advanced truck technology, producing Isuzu vehicles and becoming a main manufacturer of light duty trucks. It was the first company to introduce Ford Motor Company in China, becoming a strategic cooperative partner through ADRS. JMC has also passed the compulsory national product certification (3C) and ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 environment protection systems.

Since then, Jiangling Motors Corporation, Jiangling – Isuzu Motor Co. Ltd. and Jiangling Motor Import & Export Co. Ltd. have been producing cab and chassis compartments and components for light trucks under a joint venture with Ford Motor Co., Isuzu Motors Corp. and Itochu Corp., Japan.

The initial Philippine market lineup consists of the “JMC COMPADRE” series light trucks and “JMC N301 HUNTER” pickup truck series.

The “JMC COMPADRE” is available in three different variants: JMH, JMK4 and JMK6. These are direct injection, diesel-powered, cab-chassis light commercial vehicles that can be configured for a multitude of tasks and business applications.

The “JMC N301 HUNTER” pickup truck series complements the commercial vehicle lineup and will be available in four variants: single cabin 4x2, single cabin 4x4, double cabin 4x2, and double cabin 4x4.

JMC is proud of the fact that its vehicles incorporate Japanese design and technologies, with components specifically manufactured by its dozens of JMC subsidiaries; modern, first-class production lines for engines, casting, stamping and body assembling.

JMC thereby sets a higher and more consistent level of quality compared to other Chinese automotive manufacturers that assemble vehicles from a multitude of generic component suppliers and which assemble and market such vehicles under a single brand.

JMC COMPADREseries light trucks are imported in Knocked Down (KD) form by DREAMCO Automobile Company Inc. These are then assembled at its facility in Laguna Technopark, utilizing highly skilled Filipino technicians under strict ISO9001 quality system standards.

Local assembly of the JMC COMPADREseries light trucks assures local customers of the same, high-quality workmanship as the popular Japanese light commercial vehicles being assembled side-by-side in the same plant.

DREAMCO is a member of the Truck Manufacturer Association (TMA) and is registered with the Board of Investments (BOI) under the Motor Vehicle Development Program (MVDP). DREAMCO is a 100% Filipino-owned corporation, run by a professional group which has been in the automotive business for more than 50 years.
