Toshiba Philippines to open local office this August

Toshiba Philippines to open local office this August

Just talked to a couple of folks who have close relationship with Toshiba that the company will be opening a local office in the Philippines by August this year.

Currently, Tricom is the one that’s representing Toshiba in the Philippines (they’re the ones that handle local product launches and send out review units). We always have to refer to Toshiba Singapore when it involves corporate communications.


Now that they are opening a local office, we should be seeing more presence of Toshiba products as well as better support from the company.

For one, expect the Toshiba Thrive tablet to land in the Philippines real soon (we’re expecting to get our hands on one very soon).

  5. Might be a case of too little, too late or simply too late? I would’ve thought they already had an official local office in-country. On the tech side, most of their market share has probably been eaten up by more accessible brands like Acer, Asus, etc. Hell, I see more Dells, HPs and Compaqs than Toshibas these days (far cry from a decade ago when all you saw were Satellites, ThinkPads and Lifebooks).

    On the more-mundane appliance side…I’m way more surprised that they don’t have a local office. My dad never liked getting Toshiba since he’d always say “mahirap ipaayos” for ACs/TVs/etc. But we’d always get Toshiba light bulbs anyway.

    Gotta admit though, they do make quality toys. My first laptop was a Toshiba Satellite 2435 and it lasted me 8 years. And it actually still works but the AC adapter jack is busted (so the batt can’t charge).

  6. It’s a nice thing that Toshiba will have their office here to handle service and inquiries about their products.
