Foton Philippines had a busy 2019. From launching new vehicles like the Gratour Minivan, Gratour TM, the refreshed Thunder pick-up truck, and the EST-M Hurricane series of trucks; to opening several dealerships in Bacoor and GMA in Cavite, Puerto Princesa in Palawan, and Clark in Pampanga; the automaker was very active indeed.
What was the result of all their hard work? Foton Philippines closed 2019 with a growth of 4% compared to 2018. In addition, Foton maintained its number 9 position in CAMPI-TMA, and number 10 overall in the industry.
As a way of saying thank you to its dealers, Foton started the new year with the annual Dealers' Appreciation Night. There, the company recognized its top dealers that performed the best last 2019.
Winning overall was Foton Marilao who also took home the NCR-Luzon Dealer of The Year title. Meanwhile, Foton Cebu North Mandaue was awarded the Visayas-Mindanao Dealer Of The Year for 2019. Besides Foton Marilao and Foton Cebu North Mandaue, the company also awarded Foton Bacoor with the Rookie of the Year.
Aside from recognizing its top dealers, Sytin also shared that Foton's dealership network expansion will continue to remain as one of its priorities this 2020. The company is looking to forge new and improved partnerships, as well as set foot in developed and emerging market areas in the coming months.
“My sincerest thanks to all our dealer principals and bank partners for the support you have extended to Foton Philippines. We have reached this far because of you and we will continue to grow our business year on year,” said Rommel Sytin, president of Foton Philippines.
With Foton's continued growth in the market, expanding dealership network, and new fleet of commercial and passenger vehicles, the company aims to challenge itself more, be more competitive, and further elevate its standards.
“I would like to extend my congratulations to all the deserving awardees for your contribution in the success of Foton Philippines, and appreciation to everyone who are present here tonight especially to the Dealer Principals as we celebrate our success and continue to 'Empower your Business',” added Sytin.
