We service all kinds of vehicles from all major brands particularly those available here in the Philippines,” he shared.

We have specs that we can straighten particularly the chassis,” he explained. Calma also shared that LAS prides itself with having been the first in the Philippines to offer water-based body paint jobs. “With our partnership with PPG Industries, the world’s leading coatings and specialty products and services company, we are proud to say that we’re first and only facility here in the country to offer water-based or aqua-based paint jobs,” he noted.

It is also known as the best-selling technology of its kind, to date. Aside from general repairs and painting jobs, as well as shuttle and towing services, the manager highlighted that LAS houses a Yokohama dealership in the area. “We have our Yokohama dealership here. We sell Yokohama tires and at the same time, we offer tire services like wheel alignment, wheel balancing, and tire mounting.

Calma concluded that with LAS’ excellent services matched with competitive and affordable rates, auto enthusiasts are always guaranteed with satisfaction and convenience. “Customers can always expect a high-standard and personalized service like no other, here at the Laus Group Auto Services. We have spacious and modern work bays that can accommodate more than 50 vehicles at the same time. And we are always willing to go the extra mile for our customers’ service needs,” he said. LAS’ first customer, Jeric Villafuerte, a Kia Pride owner, says he has been waiting for the facility to open. He shared that he is working as a driver in a logistics company inside the Freeport and the service center is a closer choice for his auto repair needs. “Matagal ko na po itong hinihitay na mag-bukas, araw-araw po kasi dito yung way ko sa trabaho kaya nakikita ko noong ginagawa pa. Dati po sa Angeles ko pa pinapagawa yung sasakyan ko, kaya masaya po ako na mayroon ng malapit na service center dito sa loob ng Clark,” he said. He added that he is confident that the Laus Auto Services can match his expectations. “Ngayon po nagpapa-change oil ako. Mukha pong magiging suki na ako dito kasi ngayon palang nakikita ko po na maayos ang paggawa at makabago ang mga kagamitan,” he furthered.
