ABN – In a bid to strengthen its presence in Nigeria, Kia Motors has unveiled a new assembly plant in Lagos.
The United Vehicle Assembly Limited plant will have an annual production capacity of 25,000 vehicles per annum.
Launching of the new plant follows the introduction of the Nigerian government’s new automotive policy, which has led to the construction of several car assembly plants in the country.
Dr Olusegun Aganga, head of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, said: “I am pleasantly surprised at the level of success and the advance technology of this plant.
“I have visited different auto assembly plants across the globe and I can tell you that with the level of the quality assurance control and the sophistication of the equipment of this assembly plant, it can compete with international standard.”
