According to the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Innoson brand of cars made by Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing Limited (IVM) have met all international requirements and are hence suitable for usage in Nigeria and abroad.

Dr. Ifeanyi Okeke, Director-General of SON, disclosed this yesterday while delivering ISO 9001: 2015 and MANCAP certificates to the car industry during its 13th anniversary celebration in Nnewi, Anambra state.

Okeke, who was represented by Director, South East, SON, Fred Akingbesote, stated that awarding the certificates to Innoson Vehicles demonstrated that the company had gone through a rigorous process of inspections and quality assurance in the last five years or more, as well as demonstrated compliance to relevant product standards and is providing products that meet consumer expectations and offer value for money among other benefits.



“With the award of MANCAP’s certificate to Innoson brand of vehicles, we are demonstrating how standardisation and conformance to standard offer strategic opportunities for increased efficiency, set bench marks and help promote Made-In-Nigeria products to the international market, as this award will boost Innoson’s brand across borders. We are in effect saying that Innoson is fit to be used in Nigeria and beyond,” he said.

Earlier in his welcome address, Innoson Chairman, Dr. Innocent Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma stated that in the pursuit of perfection, the company has upgraded its factory from manual production to semi-automation, and then to standard automation, resulting in a production capacity increase from 10,000 to 60,000 vehicles per year.

He claims that this corresponds to a 500% increase in the company’s car output.

Chukwuma stated that the company has purchased robot painting equipment, which, once implemented, will cut operational expenses, enhance productivity, and improve product quality, resulting in increased customer satisfaction.
