The Tobianos are half Chinese, making them natural businesspeople. Vicky’s grandfather owned a feed mill and when the time was right, she took over the business. And so Progressive Poultry Supply was born in 1969. It manufactures and distributes veterinary feeds, drugs and feed ingredients to wholesalers, retailers and importers.
In 2000, Novartis, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, appointed Progressive as their national distributor in the Philippines. This necessitated the employ of sales representatives to make client calls and product distribution to dealers and farm owners nationwide. This, in turn, called for a vehicle that perfectly meets the family business requirements.
The company was looking for dependable diesel-powered vehicles that can smoothly take the the team from the busy, narrow streets of Manila to the rough roads of Visayas and Mindanao. Vicky, having had a good experience with her Isuzu XTRM way back in 1998 was convinced that Isuzu was the best choice. She also remembered her Dad likewise insisting on the advantages of getting Isuzu.
“Isuzu kasi is known for the engines. Kapag sa mga diesel, ‘yun ang laging sinasabi ng Dad ko, if its diesel you should go for Isuzu” (Isuzu is known for its engines. In the diesel category, my Dad always insists that if its diesel, you should go for Isuzu).
At that time, Vicky was choosing between an Isuzu Crosswind and a pick-up truck.
“I decided na Crosswind na lang kasi mas safe, close kasi siya at maganda naman ‘yung room niya sa likod for the promo materials” (I decided to purchase a Crosswind because it is safe, enclosed with ample back room space perfect for the promo materials). “
Vicky without any sign of hesitation did not delay procuring Isuzu units: 12 XL’s and 3 XT’s from the Inteco Quezon Avenue Isuzu dealership.
The team traveled from Dipolog to Davao City by land, which lasted for three days. “It was a very, very long drive and kahit dumaan pa kami sa mga mountainous area, it was a smooth drive, hindi siya bumpy” (It was a very, very long drive even if we traveled on a mountainous area, it was a smooth drive and not bumpy) she stressed.
Vicky and her family also uses the Isuzu Crosswind for recreational trips.
“Since I used to own one, nagagamit siya mostly as family car or for short trips and sa work of course. During weekends we go to church, sometimes we go out of town or to the farm or Subic, not so much naman traveling pero may mga out of town trips din once in a while” (Since I used to own one, we use it as family car or for short trips and at work of course. During weekends we go to church, sometimes we go out of town or to the farm or Subic, we are not so much into traveling but we also have out of town trips once in a while) Vicky said.
Isuzu has made its mark right in the heart of the Tobianos. “We are satisfied with Isuzu because it really helped the business. I know that the stuff are safe inside, and ‘yung malaking space niya talaga nagiging helpful talaga siya sa’min, advantage talaga. And siyempre ‘yung engine niya” (Its big space is really helpful and indeed an advantage, and of course its engine) Vicky utters every word with conviction.
