The local auto parts manufacturing industry once again displayed its products at 2nd Philippine Auto Parts Expo (PhilAPEX)
It runs until today, August 10, at SMX Convention Center at SM Mall, Asia Complex, Pasay City.
Last year, the Philippine trade training center also held its first performance in Pasay, this event is an ideal place for manufacturers in the automotive industry-from raw equipment to parts to vehicles-to present their products and production capabilities to potential customers, who may include third-
Party manufacturers seeking to expand the network of parts suppliers for mainstream car brands.
A new development of this year's exhibition is the rise of parts manufacturing using 3D printing technology to manufacture products, and two exhibitors even printed their products on the Expo site.

The plan hopes to "revitalize the Philippine automobile industry and develop the country into a regional Automobile Manufacturing Center ".
Mitsubishi even showed a delicate Phantom G4, highlighting which parts were in-
Which parts are outsourced locally and which are imported.
Interestingly, car brands outside the Philippines have actually used some local parts manufacturers as OEMs.
For example, a manufacturer makes Mazda 3 seats in Japan and Toyota cars in Indonesia.
However, an interesting conversation we had with some parts manufacturers was that they had expanded their business beyond the automotive industry.
Although this is still their main source of living, some manufacturers are now supplying their products to other industries as well.
