FOTON vehicle first came to Philippine shores in 2006 through the United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI). UAAGI is the exclusive distributor of FOTON commercial vehicles and heavy machinery in the Philippines.
FOTON is considered to be Asia’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer. It has a wide range of commercial vehicles, which include, but is not limited to, passenger vehicles, light, medium, and heavy duty trucks, agricultural and heavy machinery. It has manufacturing plants in different cities and provinces of China, as well as overseas.
In line with its goal to becoming a full-pledged global brand, it has partnered with world-renowned brands and corporations such as Lotus, Eaton, Motorola, Bosch, DANA, GETRAG, to name a few. The most notable of which are the joint ventures with CUMMINS, USA and with Daimler AG. It is because of these that the founders and incorporators of UAAGI were convinced that FOTON would be a brand that will be welcomed and embraced by the Philippine market.
