Ford to Start Selling Vehicles in Myanmar
The Michigan-based company will open a full-service showroom and service center facility in the city of Yangon and plans to offer Myanmar customers a full range of global cars and trucks that will reportedly be imported from North America and Thailand.
“We see tremendous potential and opportunity for Ford in Myanmar, and we’re looking forward to serving customers in this exciting market,” said David Westerman, regional manager, Asia Pacific, Ford Export & Growth Operations. “We’re also committed to making meaningful contributions and investments that will support the country’s ongoing economic and social development.”
All Ford operations in Burma are possible due to an exclusive partnership with Capital Automotive Ltd, a subsidiary of the Capital Diamond Star Group. Both companies announced plans to expand with facilities across the country as business grows.
Ford Motor Co. is the latest in a series of major international companies to enter Myanmar, including Coca-Cola, General Electric, Caterpillar and Suzuki.
