Nissan’s new plant

2008-03-26 00:00

Nissan Diesel staff celebrate the opening of the company’s new R10,9 million production and warehouse facility in Rosslyn, emphasising the ongoing growth experienced by the heavy vehicle sector, despite a slump in other areas of the vehicle sector.

The move comes on the back of the company having invested more than R6 million in a new Pietermaritzburg dealership, CMH Commercial, late last year, on the back of growing local demand.

According to Johan Richards, executive vice president of management control, Nissan Diesel South Africa (NDSA) currently employs around 185 staff on its assembly line, with a total staff complement of more than 330.

‘These new facilities form part of Nissan Diesel’s ongoing commitment to assemble and deliver trucks of the highest standards and quality to customers,’ said Richards.
