Atkins Kroll Inc., the Toyota distributor for Guam and Micronesia, signed a Toyota dealership agreement with Surangel and Sons Co. in the Republic of Palau. Ksau’s Motors, a division of Surangel and Sons Co., is on track for a soft opening of its Toyota dealership in February 2022 at its new supercenter in Airai, Palau. The ultra-reliable Toyota Hilux trucks will be the first models to debut in the market.

“Atkins Kroll is extremely fortunate to establish this partnership with Surangel and Sons Co.,” said Atkins Kroll Inc., Managing Director Alex Hammett. “They take a lot of pride in the products and services they offer and always aim to give customers the best value. It was an easy decision for us, and we look forward to growing our relationship as we expand the Toyota brand in the region,” concluded Hammett.

Surangel and Sons Co. is a family private corporation in the Republic of Palau. Surangel Whipps Sr. founded the company in 1980 and since then it has always focused on providing high-quality products at fair and affordable prices.

“We want to provide quality vehicles with affordable pricing and terms for the people of Palau,” said Surangel and Sons Co., Chief Executive Officer Eric Ksau Whipps. “Ksau’s Motors will retail the Toyota Hilux trucks initially, and other models will follow. Hilux offers a lot of value, flexibility, and reliability, which Palau residents desire most,” added Whipps.

“We want to provide quality vehicles and service, and we can make this happen with the Toyota brand and our new partnership with Atkins Kroll,” concluded Whipps.

Surangel and Sons Co. began vehicle sales in the 1980s at their family residence in Sireib.
