Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

Ford will start as­sem­bling Ranger pick-up trucks in Nige­ria from Oc­to­ber, mak­ing it the first African coun­try out­side SA to as­sem­ble Ford ve­hi­cles. The move should not be seen as a threat to Ford’s Sil­ver­ton oper­a­tions in Pre­to­ria, from where it will ship up to 5 000 Ranger kits to La­gos for assem­bly. The Ranger has been an in­cred­i­ble suc­cess story for Ford in SA, with the Sil­ver­ton plant strug­gling to keep up with de­mand.
