Innoson, Nigeria’s first indigenous car manufacturing plant located in Nnewi, Anambra state has added another feather to it’s cap by making its production like automated. This is for efficiency and mass production. The robotic arm that the company has introduced will drastically reduce the manhours used in producing cars.
As Innoson Vehicles introduces robot in car manufacturing, upgrades from manual to automated production, this is set to increase car production from 10,000 to 60,000 capacity per annum.
“Innoson is the FIRST (and only company) mass producing Made-In-Nigeria cars, something most African countries only dream of.But unfortunately, Buhari & Osinbajo have not been able to pay a courtesy visit to Innoson and at least say, “Well done.” This visit should be a way of encouragement and boost in the moral of Buy Nigeria To Grow the Naira mantra”, said Stanley Nwabia, one of the residents of Nnewi.
“It is pertinent to note that before the emergence of INNOSON as an indigenous automobile manufacturing company it was a mere pipe dream and almost impossible to realise. Today, INNOSON has broken the jinx and shown with their innovation, that indeed it is possible to manufacture automobiles in black Africa and Nigeria in particular”, Chukwudi Enekwechi added while applauding the company on the rare technological feat the company has achieved during the Award Ceremony at Nnamdi Azikiwe University.
Today, INNOSON’S venture into local automobile manufacturing has spurred other companies to embark on local production of vehicles. Presently companies like NISSAN, TOYOTA, MECEDEZ, DANGOTE are emulating the good example of INNOSON in this direction.
