Published on January 11, 2014 by   ·   No Comments

Two vehicle manufacturing companies from India, TATA and TVS Motor Company, on Friday indicated their interest to establish automotive plants in Nigeria, the Principal Executive Officer (Information) of the National Automotive Council (NAC), Mr Bello Rasheed has said.

Rasheed said that top management executives of both companies made their intentions known during separate visits to the Director General of NAC, Mr Aminu Jalal, in Abuja.

Rasheed quoted the representatives as saying that both companies were encouraged by the new National Automotive Industry Development Plan (NAIDP) approved late last year by the Federal Government.

“Similarly, TVS Motors manufactures a wide range of motor cycles and three-wheelers. It is among the world’s top ten two-wheeler manufacturer,’’ Rasheed said.

“Established in 1945, TATA Motors is the world’s fifth truck manufacturer and India’s largest automobile maker with products ranging from cars, buses, utility vehicles, SUVs, trucks, armoured and military vehicles. It is also the new owner of Land Rover and Jaguar brands.

The TATA delegation comprised Messrs P. Gangadharan, N. Menon and Fred Obi, while the TVS team included Messrs K. Srinivasan, J. Vignesh and Rajan Menon.TATA logo
