“We are further expanding our capabilities as part of our thrust of fostering synergies with Ayala companies. Combining the competencies of our manufacturing and distribution arms allows us to scale our presence in this space, taking advantage of evolving movements in technology, automation, and industrial technology.” ~Art Tan, AC Industrials CEO
The KTM Philippines plant – which assembles four (4) KTM models such as the KTM 200 DUKE, KTM 390 DUKE, KTM RC 200 and KTM RC 390 – will have an initial production run of 6,000 motorcycles, with the goal of eventually expanding to 10,000 units annually. Apart from the domestic market, KAMMI plans to export to neighboring ASEAN markets as well as China, where some 60 million motorcycles are sold per year.
“This investment is part of our belief that manufacturing should be a key driver of our country’s inclusive growth going forward,” he explained. It provides jobs, supply chain opportunities, and helps put the country in the map as a center for innovation and industrialization.” ~Dino Santos, KAMMI’s President and COO
Mr. Peter Perberschlager, Vice President, Sales Asia Pacific
It was my first time to ever enter a factory of motorcycles, how it was assembled and how it was done the processing is quite amazing because the assemble process is not an easy task because as far as what I have seen its like you shouldn't miss any parts of the motorcycle not even a tiny part.
hey hope to ramp up their network to 32 dealers nationwide this year, each one providing sales and aftersales support. With this development, AC Industrials–which consolidates the Ayala Groups automotive and manufacturing segments — seeks to play a bigger role in manufacturing and contribute to the country’s rise as a Southeast Asian (ASEAN) industrial hub. Furthermore, this bold move is deemed a milestone not only in the Ayala Group’s history, but for the country as well.
