Ford starts building Marikina dealership

FORD Philippines said it started building a dealership in Marikina, set to open late this year.

It will be one of the biggest Ford dealerships in the country, the company said, citing the facility’s floor area of more than 5,000 square meters. The showroom can display eight vehicles while the service area has 26 bays.

Ford Marikina will be the first in Metro Manila to follow the Ford’s new global dealership branding guidelines.

“The addition of a new Ford dealership in our growing network in the country testifies to the growing preference for the Ford brand in the country as we continue to widen our reach to customers in the eastern part of Manila,” said Ford Philippines Managing Director Bertrand Lessard.
