In order to offer drivers in Lipa City one-stop auto services, from fueling up to tuning up, ValuePlus Auto Service Express (VPX), the franchising brand of ValuePlus Auto Services Philippines, Inc., and Astral Fuel Corporation, an innovative player in the retail fuel industry, recently signed a co-branding partnership.The Astral Service Center Powered by VPX will offer ValuePlus’ top-of-the-line auto repair and maintenance services, including preventive maintenance, oil changes, mechanical and electrical repairs, wheel alignment, and tire services, to Astral Fuel’s clients. In order to save time and money, drivers can get their vehicles inspected in addition to having their gasoline tanks refilled at a single visit.
This partnership paves the way for ValuePlus to serve more customers in Batangas province. In June 2021, ValuePlus opened its branch in Libjo, Batangas City through its franchise partnership with Jandusay and Sons. This is ValuePlus’ fourth branch in the country, with the other two in Metro Manila and one in Sorsogon in Bicol province.
Mark Saberola, General Manager of ValuePlus, said of the co-branding partnership: “We are delighted to partner with Astral Fuel to provide more customers with ease and convenience. By bringing our car maintenance and repair services to the gas station, we help the drivers maximize their time and ensure smooth and safe travel.”
The tie-up with Astral Fuel also marks a new milestone for VPX as its first co-branding partnership. The co-branding partnership is a new hybrid program offered by VPX to provide independent fuel companies and homegrown car repair shops with a more accessible option to carry and offer ValuePlus’ auto repair and maintenance services.
This year, VPX aims to bring its co-branding partnership program to more fuel retailers in the country, like Astral Fuel.
Amalyn Penix, Operation Director of Astral Fuel, remarked: “When we were seeking a partner for this endeavor, ValuePlus became our top choice. The company has a strong reputation for its quality services and after-sales care. We believe in providing our customers with the highest quality fuel products and services. ValuePlus is very much aligned with what we believe our customers deserve.”
