MD Juan Enterprises : Proudly Filipino-Owned Jeep Business in the Philippines


Wazzup Pilipinas!


So are you aware that there are several types of jeeps aside from the jeepneys that we see on the roads everyday. Many of these jeeps are now considered collectibles as they were a great part of history. Earning names like the "MacGuyver", the "MacArthur" and other names I could not recall at this time, they are indeed fascinating machineries that made up the days of our grandfathers during their younger years.

Many have used jeeps for military functions and some have also used them for private use as a collection to show off or to use occasionally for special functions or to flaunt at car shows. If you put a pimped-up jeep side by side with even the most expensive sports car, I bet both will get special attention from the crowd.

But these jeeps are most probably considered "extinct" in the Philippines. It's a different news in other countries as there is even a Filipino-owned company that manufactures jeepney metal parts for export abroad.

We learned about the history and a lot of very interesting facts about jeeps when we visited the manufacturing plant of MD Juan Enterprises in Caloocan proudly owned by the Juan family with Rommel Juan being the over-all head of the business.



MD Juan Enterprises is the pioneer in machine-pressed metal parts for both military and civilian jeeps in the Philippines, organized to manufacture jeeps, jeep body tubs & kits, jeep chassis, body parts, automotive accessories, components and spare parts and machineries. Products are manufactured from black iron sheets & pipes, mild steel plates, carbon steel, stainless steel, tubings and shaftings.

It ultimately evolved into a business conglomerate engaged in the fabrication and exporting of metal works, stamped metal parts, automotive accessories, parts and assemblies, military products and security products.



We were very much honored when we were greeted by the welcoming  party composed of the officers and staff of  MD Juan Enterprises. This was one of the very few establishments that made the effort to stop what they were doing and take the time to greet their visitors.

I remember the first company to be Epson Philippines Corporation when we visited their plant in Batangas. It brought back memories when we only get the same treatment from foreign companies. What was



We got to see some paintings inspired by the jeep, plus a collection of toy jeeps displayed in shelves.




The event started off with a short presentation about MD Juan Enterprises and some history and background of the business.


They have informed us that around 90 to 95 percent of their demands are from abroad. They also shared with us that they are also the people behind the e-jeepney. It would have been a bigger and better business if only the government of the Philippines could give additional support necessary to boost manufacture and sales.



After the presentation and some snacks, we went around the plant to take a look at all the jeeps and assembly line. The people were on lunch break so we got to see the plant while there were only a few people in the area.



















It would have also been a very big business if only the other local manufacturers would stick to quality rather than cheaper alternatives for materials - thinner and poorer quality metals - it's harder to compete here in the Philippines as many of our countrymen can whipped up a look-alike of the quality jeeps using inferior materials.

  7. Jeep parts such, as Jeep Wrangler Parts and Jeep Cherokee Parts require the most extreme in car care and security. Check for indications of harm on the suspension and undercarriage.
