Tentang Foton Motor Philippines Inc.
FOTON vehicle first came to Philippine shores in 2006 through the United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI). UAAGI is the exclusive distributor of FOTON commercial vehicles and heavy machinery in the Philippines. In line with its goal to becoming a full-pledged global brand, it has partnered with world-renowned brands and corporations such as Lotus, Eaton, Motorola, Bosch, DANA, GETRAG, to name a few. The most notable of which are the joint ventures with CUMMINS, USA and with Daimler AG. It is because of these that the founders and incorporators of UAAGI were convinced that FOTON would be a brand that will be welcomed and embraced by the Philippine market. Ten years after UAAGI’s incorporation in the Philippines, it continued to expand by opening FOTON Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI). FMPI is an assembly facility that spans 11 hectares in the heart of Clark Freeport Zone which now serves as the source of locally-assembled passenger and commercial vehicles. Apart from the production of vehicles for business and leisure, the establishment of the FOTON Clark Assembly Plant also aims to improve the Philippine economy by employing a sizable workforce of Filipino engineers and technical personnel.
