FAW Truck Plant - IDZ Port Elizabeth
The new state-of-the-art FAW truck and passenger car plant has been built at Coega Industrial Development Zone in the Eastern Cape. FAW’s decision to build the plant in South Africa is significant as it is, to date, one of the most important investments made by a Chinese entity in South Africa. The total investment of approximately R600 million has been financed by FAW China and the China–Africa Development Fund (CAD-Fund). The arrival of FAW in this region adds yet another blue-chip automobile company to the province. Expected to eventually produce 5 000 trucks annually, it is envisaged that the plant will be completed by the end of 2013, and the first trucks to be assembled in the new plant, will roll off the assembly line in the third quarter of 2014. FAW prides itself on giving optimum value for money and this, combined with being a world class product, has made it one of this country’s champions in the truck industry.
