Ford starts Ranger production in Thailand
Ford has started production of its renewed Ranger pick-up at the Rayong Plant in Thailand in order to ride the wave of the growing success of the pick-up sector in all the emerging markets of Southeast Asia.
A change of strategy for the American carmaker that until now had only assembled the model at the other Rayong factory, managed by the AutoAlliance joint venture with Mazda.
The second plant in Rayong, where in fact today is released the Ranger, is controlled by Ford Thailand Manufacturing that has invested in the project 186 million dollars. The capacity is 180 thousand units per year.
