Ford Motor Co Philippines (FMCP), a unit of US auto manufacturer, has shipped 577 units of Ford Focus to the Indonesian National Police Force, largest-ever fleet sales for vehicles assembled out of FMCP’s Santa Rosa, Laguna plant since it started its export program in 2002, online news website Business Mirror reported.

Ford, the only exporter of completely built-up units in the Philippines, has already shipped over 62,500 Ford and Mazda vehicles valued at more than $800 million to countries in the region.

“This fleet-purchase to Indonesia is significant for FMCP as it points to the success of our export business and underscores the exceptional quality of the vehicles we produce in the Philippines. It is also a testament to the world-class craftsmanship and dedication of Ford’s Filipino workforce which enabled these vehicles to earn such successes,” Ford Group Philippines President Rick Baker said in a statement.

Exports currently account for roughly half of Ford’s total production volume in the Philippines.

Aside from the Ford Focus, the company also exports the Ford Escape, Mazda 3, and Mazda Tribute to Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.
