    Brief History

    Automotive Air-conditioning Philippines, Inc. (ATP) and Laguna Air-conditioning System Philippines, Inc. (LSP) commenced commercial operations in April 2004.  They took over the business and plant manufacturing set-up of Sanden Aircon Philippines, Inc.  (SAP) in Carmelray Industrial Park which had, primarily, produced automotive air-conditioning systems and components for the domestic market since December 1996. ATP would then focus on the global overseas markets while LSP had the charter for domestic business and sales.

    ATP’s strategic export business thrust was, immediately, boosted in 2004 with the entry of the Suzuki hose and pipes and condenser sales in Europe.

    With the bedrock domestic business (with Toyota, Honda, Isuzu, Mitsubishi and Ford), LSP obtained and
    developed the Toyota Motor Philippine’s new IMV Innova model and won the Toyota Best Production Preparation Award in 2005.

    ATP went on further export sales expansion in 2006 with the development of the new product line of aluminum airbag pipes for Takata and the start of hose and pipes deliveries to Ford Europe.  The former was further enhanced with the customer’s actual requirements for the use of steel in the additional airbag pipes instead of the only the aluminum primary material.

    In the domestic front, LSP secured air-conditioning system sales and installations for Hyundai in mid-2008. 

    The two companies’ commitment to the Integrated Quality, Safety and Environment Management System (with the corresponding certifications) helped obtain ATP’s new hose and pipes business with Aston Martin in May 2008.

    ATP had another memorable year of sales growth in 2009 when it started to supply Nissan Diesel Motor Co., Ltd. – Japan with hose and pipes for its UD Trucks (Ultimate Dependability).

    In the past six years, since 2004, LSP has been given excellence awards in Cost and Delivery performances several times in the domestic front by Toyota and Keihin (Honda) as well as in Production Preparation for the Toyota Innova.
     
    Recently, in view of the rapid globalization of business and the growing competition in both the overseas and domestic markets and with the local automotive industry’s manufacturing and CKD processing situation, the Management of ATP and LSP decided to merge the two companies for better efficiencies and stronger operations.  The Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission approved the merger in May 25, 2010 with Automotive Air-conditioning Technology Phils., Inc. as the resulting business operation.

     

    Certifications

    Previously, SAP had secured certifications for the ISO 19001:1994 and QS 9000:1998 in July 1998 and September 2003, respectively.  The QS  Certification  was successfully  transferred to the new companies, ATP and LSP, in May 2004.

    Also, in 2004, ATP and LSP obtained the ISO 14001:1996 certification in line with Sanden’s global commitment to environmental care.

    ATP and LSP’s global and domestic competitiveness was further complemented with the Ford Q1 certification issued in December 2005 and ISO 14001:2004 and TS16949:2002 in January and February 2006, respectively.

    In 2007, ATP and LSP, besting the challenge, implemented the Integrated (Quality, Safety & Health and the Environment) Management System which, then, paved the way for their receipt of the OHSAS 18001:1919 Standard in March 2008.

    Lately, ATP and LSP were issued the latest versions of OHSAS 18001:2007 on March 2009 and ISO/TS 16949:2009 on January 2010.
