The company imports and distributes Ford vehicles around the country.

It is the only Ford company left to retain the full title Henry Ford & Son Ltd. The company is a subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company, the global car maker based in Dearborn, Michigan in the US. It manufactures or distributes automobiles across six continents. With about 199,000 employees and about 67 plants worldwide, the company's automotive brands include Ford and Lincoln.
