The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance today officially opened a joint staff training centre in the Philippines.
The two-story facility in Laguna will instruct up to 200 Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors trainees a day on providing more efficient and value-added service to customers in showrooms and also in service centres.
Mitsubishi Motors and Nissan said that they expect the centre to reduce costs of improving their staff skills through synergies such as more efficient access to trainers and courses in one central location.
"This training centre will be the venue for further enhancing the capabilities of our dealer and manufacturing personnel with regards to the newest technologies. It will also improve work efficiency and productivity through various trainings and simulations of daily operations," said Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, president and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC).
Besides recreated dealership and service reception areas for training, the facility will provide body and paint repair workshops for staff, along with training in assembly, machine maintenance, materials handling and vehicle inspection.
The training centre, located at the Mitsubishi Motors plant in Santa Rosa, Laguna, will also have the capacity to support future technical training on electric vehicles, in line with both companies’ focus on more electrification.
It is said that the facility is part of a convergence of functions led by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi partnership.
