Even as we approach to the conclusion of 2016, Suzuki Philippines Inc. and the Royce Group of Companies are not stopping in providing the best to their vast clientele. Celebrating their 25 years of partnership, the two big names in the Philippine motoring industry are opening another brand new 3S concept shop, this time in Cabanatuan City – the home of Royce Group of Companies.

Established in the 70’s, Royce has built its name in distributing domestic devices and after 20 years they stretched out their reach by offering motorcycles with Suzuki as their first brand of choice. Twenty-five years later, the Royce Group of Companies with its 7 trading arms – Royce Motorcycle Trade Corporation, Jan William, Don Philip, Volt Ivan, Volt Harold, Extreme Bikes and Kevin Henry, has grown immensely distributing Suzuki in its vast dealerships in the whole of Luzon with 18 Suzuki Moto Centers and 4 3S shops plus its long list of multi-brand shops.
