Koega FAW sends first trucks north

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

The FAW fac­tory in Koega has ex­ported the first five J5P truck trac­tors to Mom­basa, Kenya. Yusheng Zhang, CEO of FAW Ve­hi­cle Man­u­fac­tur­ers SA, said the trucks were com­pa­ra­ble — if not bet­ter — to the trucks built by the par­ent company in China, but the Koega plant could de­liver quicker, which was why Africa deal­ers who tra­di­tion­ally placed their or­ders with FAW China are now or­der­ing from South Africa. Zhang said clients can eas­ily ad­just spec­i­fi­ca­tions to ac­com­mo­date their unique re­quire­ments and trucks were al­ready be­ing built for the FAW Tan­za­nia deal­er­ship.
