Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited, Nigeria’s premier indigenous automaker, has taken a significant step forward in the automotive industry. The company has upgraded its assembly plant from an annual production capacity of 10,000 vehicles to an impressive 60,000 automobiles.
The announcement came from the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Innocent Chukwuma, during the 13th-anniversary celebration of Innoson and the presentation of the ISO 9001:2015 certificate by the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON).
**A Remarkable Transformation**
The remarkable 500 percent increase in vehicle production capacity can be attributed to the company’s shift from manual production to semi-automation. Chukwuma noted, “In our pursuit of perfection, we have upgraded our factory from manual production to semi-automation and then to standard automation, which has seen our production capacity rise from 10,000 vehicles to 60,000 vehicles per annum.”
This momentous transformation represents Innoson’s dedication to providing quality Nigerian-made vehicles that are reliable, durable, and affordable for the Nigerian market. It’s a testament to their unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction.
Chukwuma expressed his joy at receiving the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Certificate and the MANCAP Certificates from the Standards Organisation of Nigeria. These accolades underscore Innoson’s adherence to international standards of quality and excellence in all aspects of its operations.
**SON’s Recognition and Praise**
The Director-General of SON, Dr. Ifeanyi Okeke, who presented the ISO 9001:2015 and MANCAP certificates to Innoson, commended the company for achieving these milestones. He stated that Innoson vehicles meet all international standards and are fit for use not only in Nigeria but also beyond the country’s borders.
Okeke emphasized that awarding these certificates to Innoson demonstrates the company’s rigorous adherence to inspections and quality assurance over the last five years or more. Innoson has showcased compliance with relevant product standards, delivering products that meet consumer expectations and provide value for money, among other benefits.
The presentation of the MANCAP certificate is particularly significant as it highlights the strategic opportunities that standardization and conformity to standards offer. It sets benchmarks for quality, and efficiency, and promotes “Made-in-Nigeria” products to international markets. This recognition will elevate the Innoson brand, making it a strong contender not only in Nigeria but also on the global stage.
In essence, the award of the MANCAP certificate to Innoson reinforces the company’s fitness for use within and beyond Nigeria, marking a remarkable milestone in the journey of this pioneering Nigerian automaker. Innoson’s commitment to excellence and innovation is making a significant impact on the automotive landscape, and it is poised for a bright future in the industry.
