Ford expands footprint, opens Marikina dealership

Ford Group Philippines (FGP) expanded its reach to the east of the Metro by launching its Marikina dealership, located along Sumulong Highway in Marikina City.
The new dealership is the 49th in the country and is the first to follow Ford’s Signature global dealership and branding guidelines with a more welcoming interior design. Inside the 11,000 square meter dealership houses an eight-car showroom display, 26 service bays and two interactive bays. The dealership is operated by MOS Autosolutions Inc., headed by chairman Ramon Manzana and president Jedrik Manzana.


Inside, a welcome pod greets the customers upon entering the showroom premises, while customer lounges allow customers to connect and remotely work outside the comfort of their offices, as well as charging gadgets. The dealership also has new technological features that allow a more connected and better after sales service. The exterior retains the same look and feel as with other Ford dealerships across the country, as shown on the facade, walls and the Ford signage.
“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. This is another major milestone that we share with our new dealer partner MOS Autosolutions Inc., and we look forward to serving our customers in this area with this newest dealership facility,” Ford PH managing director PK Umashankar said in a statement.
“Ford is a world-renowned automotive brand and we are thankful for this collaboration with Ford Philippines for allowing us to expand our automotive business and build a Ford dealership facility. Marikina is one of the most industrialized and business-savvy cities in the country with a thriving economy, and we’re very optimistic conducting our business in this side of Metro Manila,” MOS Autosolutions Inc. Chairman Ramon Manzana said.
