FORD up­grades its con­veyor sys­tem

Nam Wheels - - NEWS & NEW MODELS -

The Ford Mo­tor Com­pany of South­ern Africa (FMCSA) has in­vested more than R125mil­lion to up­grade a 3,000m long ve­hi­cle con­veyor sys­tem at the com­pany’s Sil­ver­ton Assem­bly Plant in Pre­to­ria, South Africa. This was done in or­der to in­crease pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity for the lo­cally- built Ranger and Ever­est. The in­vest­ment forms a part of FMCSA’S man­u­fac­tur­ing ex­pan­sion plans to in­crease the plant’s ca­pac­ity by 22% from 27 jobs-per-hour to 33 jobs-per-hour by Jan­uary of 2018. This fol­lows the move to a two-ve­hi­cle fa­cil­ity last year when the Ford Ever­est joined the Ranger on the Pre­to­ria assem­bly line.
