Ford Trucks is continuing its aggressive expansion across Western Europe, having announced a move into France.
The Turkish truck maker has formed F-Trucks France, a joint venture with established dealers Groupe Maurin, Groupe DMD and Groupe Amplitude. It will have 25 dealer points open by the start of 2022, with a further five added by 2023. The company already had a presence in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, and next year will enter the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria.
“We are quite aggressive in our expansion plans,” said Muskara Caner Sinanoglu, MD France Ford Trucks, who confirmed that the UK also forms part of its future plans. “We are working on a right-hand-drive, and are in talks with people.”
Ford’s F-MAX scooped the International Truck of the Year award in 2019.
