Ford Philippines is opening majority of its dealerships nationwide starting May 16, 2020 while observing strict safety and sanitary protocols to protect its customers and dealer employees.
Opening starting May 16 are Ford dealerships in:
- Global City
- Ilocos Norte (Sales)
- Otis Manila
- Manila Bay
- Quezon Avenue
- Sta. Rosa
Meanwhile, Ford Cebu and Ford Minglanilla will resume operations as soon as the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) measures are lifted in those areas.
As part of the “new normal” of conducting business, Ford dealers are progressively rolling out measures to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in the showroom. These include conducting regular temperature checks for everyone entering the showroom, re-organization of the dealership floor to ensure social distancing, wearing of face masks and gloves for Ford dealer personnel at all times with a hazardous waste container onsite for proper disposal, enforcement of social distancing rules in all customer interactions, thorough disinfection of all Ford dealerships three (3) times a day, and availability of hand sanitizer dispensers and alcohol in the showroom.
On the sales and service side, Ford dealerships are also implementing a number of initiatives such as vehicle sanitation, remote sales support to give customers a first-hand shopping experience, and support for financing.
“As we open the majority of our Ford dealer network, we would like to assure our customers and dealer teams that their health and safety remain our top priority with safety and sanitary measures in place in our Ford showrooms,” said PK Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines.
Between May 1 to 15, 2020, 15 Ford dealerships have opened.
