Universal Motors Corporation (UMC), the country’s largest and oldest 100% Filipino-owned assembler and distributor of Nissan Light Commercial Vehicles, has proven in its 54 solid years of experience in the local automotive industry that resiliency is an essential key to success. UMC’s humble beginnings began in April 1954. With a paid up capital of P 125, 000.00 the Lee brothers, together with its partners, formed UMC. The company pioneered in the assembly and distribution of automobiles, starting with Mercedes Benz on October 1955. In 1971, UMC entered into a distributorship agreement with Nissan and by the following year, assembled and distributed Datsun (former name of Nissan) passenger cars. In the early 1980’s, UMC concentrated on the production of Nissan light commercial vehicles (LCV’s). This was a major paradigm shift for the company since LCV’s at that time did not enjoy the kind of popularity that would encourage anyone to venture boldly into assembly operations. UMC took on the challenge, ventured forth and from then on been known in the market and industry for its commitment to provide customers with products of exceptional quality and reliability.
Today, the vehicle the company sells forms an integral part of the daily lives of its buyers, both business and personal.
