Throwback on how Aerophone started…
Aerophone was founded on October 10, 1996 and started renting a small space at the Raintree Mall in Cebu City. It envisions being the eminent retailer among mobile phones, accessories and laptop retailers nationwide.
In October 1997, Aerophone became an exclusive dealer of Express Telecommunications Co. Inc. (a.k.a EXTELCOM) as the sole distributor of its prepaid services. This paved the way for Aerophone to open several outlets outside Cebu and in some parts of Mindanao like Cagayan De Oro, Iligan, Ozamis and Davao City. In 1998, Aerophone was recognized by EXTELCOM as the Best Performing Distributor on a national level. Despite the odds it faced then, Aerophone managed to get back on its feet with the boom of the mobile phone industry in the country. In early 2000’s Aerophone expanded its services with its affiliation with Globe, Smart, Piltel and Islacom.
We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our employees and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire organization.
