RGC Automotive Groups “Gawang Pinoy, Galing Pinoy” approved by Provincial Bus Operators

 

Provincial bus operators proud of “Gawang Pinoy, Galing Pinoy” products

Around 40 provincial bus operators from the Provincial Bus Operators Association of the Philippines (PBOAP) converged recently at the 1,300 square meter world-class manufacturing plant of Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation (Roberts AIPMC) in Cabuyao, Laguna.

Their visit left them mesmerized and were full of pride when they realized that the products they saw, mainly radiators and leaf springs or molye, all staple products of vehicles such as buses and which they thought were made overseas, are all proudly and quality-made by fellow Pinoys.

The tour of the ISO 9001:2008-certified plant was sponsored by Roberts AIPMC, a leading name in the manufacture of radiators (Evercool), leaf springs (Tiger), mufflers and exhaust systems (Soundex) in the country. The company, a part of the RGC Group of Companies, makers of the popular Uratex foam, also provides metal stamping and fabrication services to some of the world’s popular Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) like Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, Isuzu Philippines, Columbian Motors, Pilipinas Hino and Suzuki.

After a brief presentation on how Roberts AIPMC’s products and services can benefit PBOAP members, the group proceeded to the main factory area. Their excitement was instantly felt since it was their first time to visit a modern plant that manufactures parts they need to effectively and safely run their buses.

At the main assembly line, they all marveled at the modern testing equipment that can simulate actual road conditions that OEMs require. The PBOAP members saw how these state-of-the-art devices like the Vibration, Impulse and Wind Tunnel testing machines enable Roberts to subject its products to rigorous testing to ensure that they meet globally recognized standards with regard to safety, stability and overall quality.

A PBOAP member, Rolly Alamo, a Maintenance Manager at St. Rose Transit, was pleasantly surprised when he saw the technology being used in making radiators and leaf springs and the quality of the output. “It’s good that they have the technology to make superior products. It will teach operators to go local instead of foreign brands. We are proud to know that Filipinos are making products like radiators and leaf springs that will be of great benefit to local bus operators,” Alamo said during the plant tour.

For his part, Alex Yague, PBOAP President, felt privileged in visiting a plant such as that of Roberts AIPMC for the first time. Just like the others, Yague thought the products were imported. “Actually, when we got the invitation, we were curious if they were really Pinoy made, and we’re glad that they are. It’s nice to know that we now have the technology, with matching Pinoy ingenuity, to produce world-class products that will help us. We are also happy that they can even customize their products to fit operators’ specific needs and road requirements,” says Yague.

He also thanked the RGC Group, under which Roberts AIPMC belongs, for the opportunity. “We thank them for arranging this first-ever meeting. I really feel proud knowing that a 100-percent Pinoy firm is making products that meet global quality standards right here in our own backyard.”

To which Eddie Gallor, Executive Vice President of the RGC Group of Companies, replied, “We are happy the PBOAP members liked what they saw, and their surprise that the products they know are imported are actually made here. We thank the PBOAP for accepting our invitation and we hope we could be of further service to them. This is not the first time we will meet with PBOAP and hopefully, we can learn from each other further.”

The Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation plant and office is located at the RGC Compound, Canlubang Industrial Estate, Bo. Pittland, Cabuyao, Laguna. For more information, visit www.roberts.com.ph.

Tiger Leaf “Subok sa baybayin ng Cordillera”

Pagtalbog ng sasakyan sa biyahe—paano iiwasan?

 

SIMPLE lang ang pamilya ni Carlito Morona, tubong Nueva Ecija pero laking Kalookan—na may sariling paupahan ng mga vans.

At tuwing nakakaluwag siya pagdating ng bakasyon ng mga anak sa eskwela, niyayaya niya ang mga ito na magbakasyon sa probinsya nila at kung saan-saan pa gamit ang isa sa kanyang apat na vans na lahat ay mahigit walong taon na mula nang mabili niyang segunda mano.

Sa umpisa, hindi komportable ang biyahe nilang mag-anak sa probinsya, lalo na kung sila ay dadaan sa mga malubak o di maayos na kalsada. Balewala man ang init ng summer dahil nasa kundisyon ang mga aircon ng kanyang mga sasakyan, naiirita siya sa kahit maliit na bato sa kalsada.

clip_image002

Pero nakaraan na para sa kanya ang matagtag na biyahe dahil ngayon, komportable na ang kanyang buong pamilya kahit na hindi bago ang kanilang sasakyan. Ito ay dahil sa pagtangkilik ni Morona sa molye (leaf spring) na gawa ng Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation (Roberts AIPMC), ang kumpanya na nakabase sa Cabuyao, Laguna at bahagi ng Uratex na gumagawa ng mga foam at mattress.

“Sa Tiger Leaf Spring na gawa ng Roberts, tiyak at garantisado ang komportableng biyahe, ma-off road man ito o hindi. Hindi kagaya ng ibang molye, ang Tiger leaf spring ay may katangiang kakaiba sa ibang mga manufacturers. Para kang bumibiyahe ng nakalutang,” sambit ni Morona.

“Tama si Ginoong Morona. Ang mga molye ng Roberts na may brand na ‘Tiger’ ay gawa sa isang mahusay na proseso at dumaan sa mas masusing pagsusuri ng aming mga eksperto. Ang mga ito ay dumaan pa sa matinding pagsubok na ang resulta ay lubos na ginhawa para sa driver at mga pasahero,” ani Mike Gonzalez, ang general manager ng Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation (Roberts AIPMC).

Si Rafael Lucindo naman, ayon kay Gonzalez, ay isa ring katulad ni Morona na tradisyon na sa pamilya ang magbakasyon kung saan-saan kapag tag-araw. Hindi nila alintana ang init—maski ang kundisyon ng kalsada.

Hindi daw biro ang mga kalsada sa Cordillera, walang aspalto o semento man lang, dagdag pa ni Lucindo. Maputik, mabitak pero nakaya nila lahat dahil gamit nila ang Tiger leaf spring ng Roberts AIPMC.

Idinagdag din ni Morona ang iba pa niyang mga karanasan sa paggamit ng Tiger leaf spring, pati na sa mga katulad niyang nagpapaupa rin ng mga sasakyan na tumangkilik na sa maasahang produkto na ito.

“Isang barangay na kami sa Kalookan na gumagamit ng Tiger na molye mula sa Roberts AIPMC. Pati mga mekaniko ng aming mga sasakyan ay inererekomenda na ang Tiger,” ani Morona.

Para sa iba pang kaalaman tungkol sa Tiger leaf spring, pati na din sa Evercool radiator na gawa ng Roberts AIPMC, tanungin ang inyong paboritong mekaniko o magtungo sa kanilang website, www.roberts.com.ph.

With Cryolipolysis, the cold can breakdown areas of fat tissue by targeting adipocytes (fat cells). Once the adipocytes have shrunk or withered from the cold temperatures, they will eventually be metabolized by the lymphatic system.

Dubbed "Un Regalo Delicato" (One Delicate Gift), this stylishly themed yet simple kick-off event held today at the V-Mall, Greenhills Shopping Center store of OUR|HOME, a contemporary furniture store for stylish living, gathers select guests from both the upscale market and lifestyle media—all hailed via a red-carpet treatment with free flowing wine and cocktails amid the lively vibe of the newly renovated store.


IMG_1382

The afternoon gala opens with a mini-fashion show starring celebrated and stylish mothers of today—the main target market of Uratex Premium Mattresses. The select mom-models who will sashay on stage include Swedish-born actress Sandra Larsson, Sidney Loo, and Russian model Yulia Keltsova, among others.

maricel
Hosted by the popular and model for all Moms, Maricel Pangilinan, this activity also introduces the Uratex Rajo Laurel Mattress Collection with two of its much-sought after items featured in the promo: the Trapunto Mattress and Scatola. No less than internationally acclaimed designer Rajo Laurel will talk about his own collection, followed by product presentations from Uratex and OUR|HOME, and the much-awaited raffle draw of a Scatola for a lucky guest.

The Scatola is a stylish three-fold futon that easily converts into an ottoman to become a seat, bedside table, footstool or table for snacks, games or TV time in just seconds. Trapunto, on the other hand, is a specialty mattress for the aesthetically discerning and embodies luxury, support, comfort and a level of sophistication commonly likened with his celebrated fashion collections. 

IMG_1418

"I have always been drawn to graphic lines and strong angles. This has always been a constant feature in my work and designs. I just kept drawing lines and cubes and from this experimentations Trapunto, which is a stitch technique, was born,” Laurel explains.

As for Scatola, which means “box” in Italian, Laurel said because his idea for the Scatola for Uratex was a piece of furniture that can be transformed from what originally looks like a box. “I thought that it would be a catchy phrase to call it that. I love the Scatola as it is so useful and practical but super stylish at the same time," says Laurel of his inspiration in coming up with his exquisite designs for his mattresses. 

IMG_1388

Just like a lily that symbolizes fertility and the nurturing attributes of a mother, Uratex and OUR|HOME believe that it's ideal to treat our mothers with the best present she deserves during her special day.
