Iveco first began the import, sales and distribution of its vehicles in South Africa over 20 years ago, in 1993. In anticipation of this milestone event, which will see the manufacturing of Iveco vehicles in Africa, the brand is launching the “Born in South Africa” campaign, which spotlights the local manufacturing of specific Iveco products for the market
The new “Born in South Africa” logo depicts a ‘stamp of authenticity’ certifying the quality of the new Iveco commercial vehicles assembled at the new facility in South Africa, all by a local workforce. This ‘stamp’ encircles the soaring five colours of the South African flag: black, yellow, green, red and blue, evoking the concept of unity. The commercial vehicles bearing this logo will be tailored for the African continent whose varied terrain and challenging driving conditions carry a demand for specific vehicle requirements.
The Rosslyn plant , in the Gauteng province of South Africa, is a major step for the company in this market, particularly in terms of local manufacturing, employment and commercial opportunities. It is the result of a successful partnership between the company’s commercial vehicles brand, Iveco, and Larimar Group, a leading South African public transport operator and bus bodybuilder.
Close to 1,000 South African employees are expected to be recruited for this new location where the Iveco and Iveco Bus brands have established production assembly lines for medium, heavy duty and extra heavy duty trucks as well as front engined and low floor city buses.
This new plant utilizes top level technologies and manufacturing methods to provide to every customer high quality products and to ensure the plant is a working environment tailored to employees. As a result, all the plants have obtained ISO 9001 – vision 2000 (quality management by process) and ISO 1400 (environmental management) certification.
