Foton Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI), the exclusive distributor of Foton vehicles in the country, recently expanded its dealer network with the opening of a new dealership in Puerto Princesa, Palawan last January 17, 2019. The newly opened dealership is located along North National Highway in Barangay Tagburos, Puerto Princesa City, and will be managed by Steering Wheel, Inc.
“The launching is actually very timely — I’ve seen all the projects and the whole vision for the province of Palawan, and FOTON will be a great help not only in its promotion as a tourist destination but in providing the best option in vehicles,” said FMPI president, Rommel Sytin.
The dealership lot covers a total size of 4,600 sqm and includes both a vehicle showroom and a service area. That said, Foton Puerto Princesa is considered to be one the largest Foton dealerships in the country with regards to lot size. The vehicle showroom can accommodate up to 8 units while there are 10 service bays in total.
“Foton Puerto Princesa is here to serve and meet the needs for transportation and development through our wide array of commercial vehicles, and earth-moving equipment. As the major distributor of Foton trucks and cars in Palawan, we are opening our doors to every Palaweño who may wish to patronize our products and establish a business relationship with us in the years to come,” added Foton Puerto Princesa CEO Michelle Tiotangco.
Present during the inauguration was Provincial Governor Jose Alvarez, who was amazed with the brand’s progress in the city.
“Through the years, I saw how Foton has improved its development and turned into a very nice and heartwarming company. Right now, they are doing very great. But in the long run, I believe they will be even better. So, I hope there will be more ventures like this in Palawan because I believe that the business side of the province’s growth can also affect the chances of the people to upgrade their lives for the better” said Alvarez.
In response to the growing number of heavy-duty trucks in the city due to infrastructure projects, Foton Puerto Princesa also opened a service facility which provide comprehensive support for heavy-duty trucks. This allows customers to have their heavy-duty trucks repaired and maintained at a dedicated service center. Prior to this, servicing of these types of trucks had to be conducted at a client's respective premises.
“I would like to thank the team of FOTON Puerto Princesa, Palawan for the trust and support in our brand, and in our vision to give every Filipino a chance to experience FOTON, geared with the aggressive goal to empower the Filipino businesses.” gratefully exclaimed Sytin.
Foton Puerto Princesa is open from Sunday to Friday, from 8AM to 6 PM. For inquiries, you may call 0917-775-7823 and 0917-775-7803.
