Ford Group of Companies in Thailand
Ford Thailand has been a leader of Thailand's automotive industry since entering the market in 1995 through the formation of the AutoAlliance Co., Ltd (AAT), a joint venture between Ford and Mazda located in Rayong province. The AAT facility represents an initial investment of US$500 million, and produces Ford Ranger and Mazda Fighter B-series pickup trucks for both domestic sale and export to 120 markets worldwide. In 2003, Ford invested an additional $500 million into the joint venture to support vehicle development programs and expansion of the plant’s capacity. After more than a decade of operations in Thailand, Ford has produced more than one million quality vehicles at AAT.
Ford has constantly grown its business in Thailand and currently operates under five companies, including AutoAlliance (Thailand), Ford Thailand Manufacturing, Ford Sales & Service (Thailand), Ford Operations (Thailand), Ford Leasing and Ford Services (Thailand).
Identifying Thailand as critical to its success in Asia, Ford established its Asia Pacific and Africa headquarters in Bangkok in 2003 to spearhead its Asian growth strategy and support its ASEAN regional operations, Ford Asia-Pacific Marketing, Sales & Service, and Ford Credit Asia-Pacific.
