Yup, that’s right! A Japanese multinational corporation is celebrating Independence Day with us by supporting locally-made products. Not all foreign-led businesses give this much importance to local products but it’s as good as it seems because Sharp Philippines Corporation (SPC), one of the leading electronics manufacturer in the country, is joining the festivities for the 120th year of Philippine Independence on Tuesday (June 12, 2018) by launching the We Love Philippines campaign for 120 days.
For the past 36 years, SPC has been manufacturing colored televisions, washing machines, electric fans, and karaoke machines while consistently remaining strong in the market. I’ve been exposed to their products ever since I’ve been born in this world – no joke. These products have already been part of the Filipino life and have undoubtedly contributed to the country’s economy despite being headed by a multinational corporation. Since 1982, Sharp has already produced 3.9 million units of color TV, 8.2 million units of washing machine and 2.1 million units of karaoke machines.
As announced by its President and General Manager, Mr. Kazuo Kito, during the press launch last May, SPC will start its We Love Philippines campaign in July of this year. This campaign is one of the strategies of Sharp to promote the importance of supporting Philippine-made products.
Through this, SPC will show their appreciation to its loyal Filipino customers by giving away exciting prizes and offering special promotions that will run for 120 days from July 1 to end of October in commemoration of the nation’s 120th year of independence.
With its strong manufacturing operations that are backed by Japanese technology, SPC commits to continuously provide new and exciting locally-made products which give back to the Philippines through the economy. Fingers crossed, let’s see how this goes for the betterment of our country!
