MANILA, Philippines, 6 March 2017 – For the third consecutive year, Ford Philippines was named as the top taxpayer in the City of Muntinlupa. The company first made it to the list of top ten taxpayers in 2014, a year after it moved its corporate headquarters to Alabang.
City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi led the celebration of Muntinlupa’s 22nd Cityhood Anniversary and the unveiling of the Centennial Avenue Marker. Fresnedi was joined by Vice Mayor Celso Dioko, Congressman Rozzano Rufino Biazon, and Business Permits and Licensing Office Chief Gary Llamas who awarded the city’s top taxpayers.
“We thank Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and Muntinlupa government for recognizing our contribution to the city as a responsible taxpayer. This citation is indeed testament to Ford’s good governance and corporate citizenship practices,” said Lance Mosley, managing director, Ford Philippines.

The segment-defining Ranger kicked off the new year with January sales increasing 32 percent year-over-year to 722 vehicles. The Ranger’s ‘Built Ford Tough’ character and full lineup of 15 variants offers the ideal complement to a wide range of Filipino work and lifestyles.
The Everest also contributed to Ford’s strong start to the year with January sales of 718 vehicles. The Everest is one of the smartest vehicles in its segment, and its striking design is unmistakable on the road.
“It’s a nice start to the year, with the uptake for Ranger, Everest and EcoSport keeping our showrooms busy around the country,” said Lance Mosley, managing director, Ford Philippines.
