On January 1993, the Yap brothers ventured into brand new sector of the car industry. With its long history in the automotive industry, particularly in the heavy equipment sector, Nissan Motor Philippines Incorporated, the manufacturer and importer on Nissan passenger vehicles, appointed Nissan Distributors, Incorporated (NCDI), a non-exclusive right and privilege to purchase and re-sell Nissan passenger car products and services in the island of Cebu, Bohol, Tacloban,Catbalogan, Samar and Leyte. With the said dealership agreement, Nissan Cebu penetrated the market in its territory to establish the presence and brand image of Nissan.
Subsequently, in 1996, Universal Motors Corporation (UMC), the manufacturer and importer of Nissan commercial vehicles, granted similar rights to purchase and re-sell Nissan commercial vehicle products and services in the same territory.
