Kia Motors' new assembly plant in Africa to make 25,000 vehicles annually

Posted on : Wednesday , 9th September 2015

 Leading automobile brand Kia Motors Nigeria has unveiled a new assembly plant in Lagos, which is expected to produce 25,000 vehicles every year

 
The plant named United Vehicle Assembly Limited (UVAL) will be part of Nigeria's robust automotive policy of making the nation a leading manufacturing hub, said officials from UVAL.
Nigerian minister for industry, trade and investment Olusegun Aganga paid a visit to the plant, stating that it was technologically advanced and had quality assurance control measures in place.
UVAL CEO Jacky Hathiramani said, "We are committed to contributing immensely to the development of the nation through this multi-billion investment. We have taken our growth commitment to a greater height in Nigeria and repositioned our brand by supporting the Nigeria dream."
The plant has employed engineering graduates from Nigerian universities and will continue to provide employment for locals.
In line with a commitment made in 2014 to produce vehicles locally, Kia Motors recently launched its made-in-Nigeria automobiles such as Kia Rio, Cerato, Optima, Sorento and Soul. By the end of 2015, the South Korean company will be producing all its flagship models, including sedans, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and pick-ups in the West African nation.
