This is highly commendable and part of the reasons why we as teachers of engineers deemed it fit to visit your facility for on–the-spot assessment of what you have and I can say for a fact that we are really excited with what we’ve seen as comparable to any world class plant you can envisage.”

Coscharis Group General Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communications Abiona Babarinde, who received the team, gave historical background of the conglomerate and various sectors where the company plays.

Babarinde said: “The assembly plant that was established in 2015, was initially located at our Ikeja office as a Semi-Knocked Down (SKD) plant that produced Ford Ranger and JoyLong buses before it was moved to the group head office in Awoyaya, Lagos. As at today, our assembly plant as an SKD plant produces Ford Ranger and Renault products with a capacity to deliver 30 units per day but for various challenges encountered as a local producer like low patronage, cost of production amongst others, produces about 10 units per day”.

Babarinde stated that Coscharis being a major player in the automotive sector in Nigeria representing some of the most respected iconic auto brands in the world like the Rolls-Royce, BMW, Jaguar LandRover, Ford, Renault and Morris Garages.

“We’ve always believed that the ultimate peace of mind we can give our loyal customers relies on our capacity to deliver seamless aftersales solutions across all these great brands we represent. We invest in getting the original spare parts direct from our Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), same with the right tools to fix the parts and huge investment in our technicians that are certified by OEMs. This ultimately gives us the edge in the industry at all times based on both our new models of each brands and the aftersales deliverables,” he said.
