OCTOBER 2021 IS a special date for Autokid as it is at this month that it will celebrate 10 years of driving your business with quality truck solutions.

Founding

October 2011—Autokid Subic Trading Corporation (shortened as ASTC) started as a dealer of second-hand cars online. ASTC was founded by businessmen Kevin McHale Yao, Marvin Tiu Lim, and Eric Lim who are still serving the company as Chief Executive Officer, President, and Executive Vice President respectively. In 2014, the company saw that the competitive landscape proved favorable for trucks. They then shifted their main business from distributing second-hand cars to surplus trucks. They then became known as Autokid Truck Solutions.
