“We are proud that the factory in Craiova has started delivering the first units of the new models. We have high hopes for the Transit Courier, which we are sure will be one of the engines of the national economy in the years to come, but also for the Tourneo Courier, a versatile, compact model adapted to both business and family needs,” stated Roxana Capătă, Managing Director, Ford Romania Services.
