Dr. Maximo D. Juan – founder of the MD Juan company
MD Juan Enterprises , Inc. was conceived on March 1967 by Dr. Maximo D. Juan to answer the growing need for a rugged, light vehicle (the multi-purpose jeep) in the Philippines. Initially, Dr. Juan imported World War II surplus jeeps from Europe and Japan. With the steady growth of the surplus market, MD Juan Enterprises started fabricating replacement jeep body parts not available locally.

Soon, Filipino jeep enthusiasts either refurbished their old jeeps using MD Juan bodies (popularly known as the Jeepstar) or built new jeeps using MD Juan’s USM chassis, the Jeepstar body and surplus engines and power trains from Japan.

In August 1969 MD Juan built its manufacturing plant in Novaliches, Caloocan City. In 1970 MD Juan ventured into the export markets of Japan, Australia/New Zealand and the U.S.A.
the company export concentration was on jeep bodies and parts identified with World War II: the MB and the Korean War: the M38. Soon after, the civilian jeep models like the CJ series were being produced in the production line.
In 1980 the company exhibited its products in various foreign expositions like the Lausanne Trade Fair, the Melbourne Trade Fair and the Singapore Trade Fair. These led to the establishment of distributorships in Europe, Australia/New Zealand and the U.S.A. In the Philippines, MD Juan is active with their participation in the annual Manila International Auto Show.
