In his welcome speech, he said: “It is of great pride that we’ve always been an advocate for quality in making sure we provide only what we know will be of great value to the Filipino motoring consumers. By value, we do not only refer to the superior brands we can offer through this Business Center but more so, the best services and customer experience we can provide.

At Drive+ Car Care Center, we are committed to deliver more value to our customers in a manner that we have mastered throughout decades of experience with Tire Boy, our first concept service center. We operate with impeccable work ethics and a professional management team, all focused on making sure we are highly productive, efficient and most importantly trustworthy in serving our ever growing client base,” he added.

The Manabat family’s roots started with JM Auto Supply, their first business, which was established in 1960 in the heart of Binondo, Manila by Mr. Jugo Manabat. In the 70s, through the leadership of Winston Manabat the company evolved into a tire importer and was then known as JM Far East Inc (JM). In the 90’s, JM further developed its passion for quality by distributing world famous brands such as Yokohama, Goodyear, Dunlop, Falken, Hankook, General and Continental tires all over the country.

With the family’s passion for quality came the opening of Tire Boy, a service center located on Maria Clara Street (near Banawe) in the year 2000. This was the family’s first venture to enter the automotive service industry. The advocacy and mission of this business was to deliver high quality car care services and products as an alternative to car dealerships and an after-sales support.

In upholding their core values of quality service, the store successfully gained renown as one of the most reliable and capable service centers in the Banawe Area in just two years. After successfully delivering value to Philippine market and accomplishing its mission, the next step was to provide customers the best possible car care experience and hence the Drive+ Car Care Center was born.

Our initiative to transition into a world class service center is our testament to having a higher purpose as opposed to simply earning money. This is our way of enriching the car care scene through providing an unparalleled customer experience” Manabat said.

We pride ourselves in upholding our corporate values and ethical business practices despite adversities because we believe that this is what separates us from the rest and makes us who we are. With the opening of Drive+ Car Care Center, we don’t just offer products and services. We offer expertise, value for money and a relationship with customers like no other.” he added.
