Known as Asia’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer, FOTON offers a wide range of commercial vehicles, which include, but is not limited to, passenger vehicles, light, medium, and heavy duty trucks, agricultural and heavy machinery.

 

FOTON has manufacturing plants in different cities and provinces of China, as well as overseas. In line with its goal to becoming a full-pledged global brand, FOTON has partnered with world-renowned brands and corporations such as Lotus, Eaton, Motorola, Bosch, DANA, and GETRAG. The most notable of which are the joint ventures with CUMMINS, USA and with Daimler AG.

 

Through this, FOTON’s design language has evolved to a more advanced comportment through upgrading their units with new technology and convenience amenities. It is because of these that the founders and incorporators of FOTON Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI) were convinced to bring the brand to the shores of the Philippine automotive market in year 2006.

 

Just 10 years after, FMPI became a registered locator in the Clark Freeport Zone with a 50-year lease agreement with Clark Development Corporation (CDC) engaging in the automotive and truck industry. In 2016, a total of P 1.2 billion was invested for the construction of the FOTON Motor Philippines, Inc. Assembly Plant – the first automotive plant in CDC, with a line capable of producing 12, 000 vehicles annually.

 

Strengthening its brand competitiveness, FOTON has also set its official membership in the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) – a leading organization in the Philippine automotive industry where to date; FOTON holds the 9th overall ranking.

 

Also reinforcing the brand’s capability is the birth of the Blue Energy technology found in Cummins-powered and Euro 4-compliant vehicles – a result of earnest R&D that offers benefits such as power, durability, reliability, efficiency, and clean emissions in every FOTON vehicle.

 

FMPI continues to secure its brand promise to empower businesses not only through first-rate products but also through aggressive aftersales capabilities reinforced through the launch of the EC Genuine Parts and EC Mobile Service Truck service programs.

 

With 26 full 3S dealerships, and continuously growing dealer network strategically located in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, FMPI is aligned with national goals in sustaining economic growth, providing quality passenger and commercial vehicles to families and businesses throughout the Philippines.

 

As FMPI sustains in achieving sales by providing high-performance units and notable services, FMPI persists to ascend and drive the fulfilling journey to become one of every vehicle owner’s top-picks.
