Star Motor Armoring Technologies Inc. is part of the oldest Filipino-owned automobile group in the Philippines.

As part of the group’s desire to provide top-quality products to VIPs and their families, we established Star Motor Armoring Technologies Inc. in September 2015, to specialize in armoring vehicles to world-class standards.

Our work ensures you and your loved ones enjoy the best protection that an armored vehicle can provide in a nondescript package. We are fully aware that most VIPs and other high net-worth individuals value their privacy and prefer to remain inconspicuous while doing their day to day activities.
