Scheirman Construction Consolidated Picks Kia K2500 As New Workhorse

The booming Philippine construction industry is back to pre-pandemic levels. Thanks to optimistic forecasts and a bustling economy, construction firms are once again firing on all cylinders. When it comes to getting the job done, it is essential that these companies choose the right equipment. Scheirman Construction Consolidated Inc. (SCCI) is no stranger to exceeding the expectations of its numerous residential, commercial, healthcare, industrial, corporate, and small business clients. This is why it has chosen the Kia K2500 4x4 double cab dropside as its do-it-all workhorse.

Scheirman Construction was established in 2016 and is helmed by Engr. William Russell Scheirman, Jr. with main offices in Cainta, Metro Manila and Cebu. The K2500 is the perfect fit for this growing company as it answers a set of very specific needs. “With safety, quality craftmanship and service, productivity and timeliness as the benchmarks of a successful construction firm, we need a light-duty truck that can handle our unpredictable weather and road conditions–and can reach even the most remote construction sites,” says SCCI Armando Inabangan Jr., Chief Strategy Officer and Director. “The K2500 suits our very demanding requirements, and because of its unique 4x4 configuration, it makes for a very ideal fleet vehicle for our construction company. We need a dependable truck to arrive at its destination—no matter what.”

The K2500 also wears the crown for being one of the most powerful vehicles in its class. Under the cab is a 2.5-liter CRDi turbodiesel that delivers 130 horsepower at 3,800rpm and 255 Nm of torque from 1,500 rpm to 3,500rpm. Mated to this powerful and efficient motor is a 6-speed transmission which allows for better fuel efficiency and flexibility whether on the open road or while navigating gridlock in urbanized areas.

“The K2500 is unique because it is the only light-duty truck in the Philippine market equipped with a 4x4 drivetrain,” says Kia Philippines president Manny Aligada. “This means maximum traction despite drastic changes in weather and road conditions. This kind of capability gives SCCI the confidence to tackle any unforeseen challenges—even after the paved road ends. Adding to the K2500’s go-anywhere specifications is having one of the highest ground clearances at 200 mm. This model is also among the top-three best-selling Kia models. We are pleased to provide this growing construction company the light-duty truck that it needs.”

The K2500 comes with a 3-year or 110,000 kilometer-warranty, whichever comes first, and 3-year free 24/7 Roadside Assistance. It also has a low cost of maintenance to help businesses further minimize spending and maximize profits. And in case of untoward incidents, Kia has a large stock of readily available parts and a nationwide network of service centers that are always ready to serve. This kind of dealership support will greatly reduce any potential downtime.

“SCCI has been a long-time client of Iconic Dealership Inc (IDI),” says IDI COO Bob Palanca. “We are grateful for the trust and confidence that SCCI has toward our dealership network, and we are ready to assist at any time. We are proud of the exceptional customer experience that we provide, and satisfaction through every step of the buying and ownership journey is of utmost importance to us. IDI is pleased to be a partner of SCCI in providing world-class innovation in construction and providing great customer service in the Philippines.”

The 10 K2500 units were received at the SCCI office in RS City Square, Ortigas Avenue Extension in Cainta. Out of the 10 units, eight will see service in Cebu, while the remaining two will be for use in the Metro Manila area. “Our fleet of K2500s will see duty immediately. We are fortunate that a vehicle with these specifications is available in the local market through Kia. No other brand carries a 4x4 double cab model,” adds Inabangan.
