About Auto Nation Group, Inc.
The general distributor of Mercedes-Benz in the Philippines.
Auto Nation Group, Inc. (ANG) is the general importer and distributor of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, parts and accessories in the Philippines. ANG is responsible for strengthening the positioning of the Mercedes-Benz brand in the market, growing the dealership network, and delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction. It fulfills its retail operations through three exclusive dealerships: CATS Motors, Inc., Automotive Icon, Inc. and Global Star Motors Corp.
The company’s roots can be traced back to 1989 when founder Felix R. Ang opened CATS, a car accessories and tires sales and servicing business. Catering mostly to an upscale market, CATS quickly became the prime source of genuine car parts and services for car owners. Through his hard work, vision and perseverance, Ang expanded his business in response to the demands of a growing market. Seeing an untapped opportunity for Mercedes-Benz customers, Ang diversified CATS to specialize on servicing Mercedes-Benz vehicles. In 1991, CATS Motors, Inc. was appointed as a Mercedes-Benz authorized workshop in the Philippines, and eventually as a dealer in 1993. The group then established Auto Nation Group, Inc. in 2014 to solely handle the importation of Mercedes-Benz and soon thereafter appointed new dealerships in Alabang and Cebu. This paved the way for CATS to be synonymous to the prestige of the Mercedes-Benz brand.
The CATS Group and Mercedes-Benz celebrated 20 years of partnership in 2012, and as a solid proof of its commitment to the brand, the company unveiled its expanded showroom and service complex in EDSA Greenhills – the same location where CATS opened shop in 1989.
Today, ANG continues to be a driving force that helps shape the local automotive industry. With a team of close to 100 people, ANG has remained true to its commitment to customer satisfaction and quality service – a testament of the group’s core values that are inspired by its founder.
