AC Motors, the automotive distribution and retail group of Ayala subsidiary AC Industrials, has joined Ayala Group’s “Saludo sa Serbisyo,” a needs-based program that gives uniformed personnel or the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) expanded access to products and services across the Ayala Group, enabling them to pick the best support they need in every key milestone of their lives. 

AC Motors officially handles automotive and motorcycle brands Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, Kia, Maxus, KTM, and Husqvarna.

“The year 2021 has brought about many changes to our country. But some things remained constant such as the safety provided by our country’s armed and uniformed heroes. They deserve our utmost gratitude for all the work they are doing to protect and serve,” according to a statement.

So far, the initiatives that have been successfully mounted with partner companies include, housing assistance program from Ayala Land,  financial education program through BPI Foundation, health and wellness program through AC Health and MDC, livelihood programs through BPI Foundation, Ayala Malls, and Ayala Coop, employment program for dependents in Partnership with Ayala Group HR Council, and employment program for retired officers through APMC.

With AC Motors joining the fray, this list of initiatives expands even further with the addition of special car and motorcycle package through AC Motors.

In a statement, the Ayala Group said that the addition of AC Motors means that members of the PNP, AFP, and other uniformed personnel, whether in the active service or retired, will now be able to enjoy exclusive discounts, packages, and other perks when they purchase cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles from Ayala-owned dealerships and distributor groups. 

Vehicles from world-class brands are now easily within the reach of our uniformed heroes. AC Motors hopes that this move will make them feel truly appreciated and encourage them to continually give their best for our country. 

The partnership between the Ayala Group of Companies—including AC Motors—and the Armed Forces of the Philippines was officially cemented on July 29, 2021 with the signing of a memorandum of understanding.

The program offers exclusive services and benefits from Ayala Companies to the uniformed heroes.
