Globe Motors Rolls out Nigeria-Assembled Hyundai, Higer vehicles
Globe Motors has rolled out a new set of Hyundai and Higer brands of vehicles from its Lekki-based assembly plant in Lagos.
The firm, in partnership with Higer Bus Company of China, constructed an ultra-modern vehicle assembly plant in Lekki, Lagos. The plant cost Globe Motors $200m to construct.
According to the Managing Director of Globe Motors, Mr. Victor Oguamalam, the team of technicians and other skilled personnel had been working tirelessly to make the dream a reality.
The company has over 50 personnel working at the plant including engineers, technicians and administrative personnel.
Oguamalam also said the current production capacity of the plant located along the Eleko-Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos could be increased depending on demand.
“Though we are not producing at installed capacity, we have started production at the plant. We currently have an annual installed capacity of 6,000 vehicles at the plant; the daily production is subject to market and other forces,” he said.
Globe Motors Vehicle assembly plant was operating at the Semi Knock Down level and planned to move to the Complete Knock Down stage as soon as possible.
