Aiming to address the mobility needs of their province for a healthier, cleaner and greener community, the Provincial Government of Pampanga acquires 40 dump trucks from FOTON Motor Philippines, Inc. (FMPI), the official and exclusive distributor of FOTON vehicles in the country.
“Our company is truly honored to be part of another project of the Pampanga that seeks to contribute to the development and wellness of our environment,” said FMPI President Rommel Sytin.
The Provincial Government of Pampanga bought 40 FOTON Tornado 3.5C Dump Trucks which were donated to the City of San Fernando to capacitate the barangays in the implementation of solid waste management that is also pursuant to Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act.
“FOTON Philippines, our dealers, and our employees have a long tradition of responding to the mobility needs of where we work and live. Pampanga is one of our homes, and will continue to provide vehicles that will aid in quickly mobilizing our resources to bring as much relief and support as possible.” shared Sytin.
The FOTON Tornado 3.5C Dump Trucks are equipped with an ISF 3.8 four-cylinder turbocharger Cummins diesel engine that provides a maximum output of 500 N-m / (1,200-1,900) rpm. This environment-friendly power plant also comes with a common rail system that reduces emissions and provides greater fuel economy.
The truck’s cabin has ample space for two to three passengers. Other amenities include adjustable steering column, sun visors, auto-adjusting braking slack, airconditioning system, power windows, central lock, and powered assist clutch operations.
With a payload capacity up to 4,590 kgs, the FOTON Tornado 3.5C Dump Trucks are also guaranteed capable of transporting recyclable and residual materials and collect biodegradable materials from the barangay beneficiaries of the province.

Our company is beyond grateful for being able to take part in their gracious efforts to develop a better society through the use of FOTON vehicles.” closed Sytin.
