PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa – Isuzu production managers have been inspecting the assembly line at the Struandale plant in Port Elizabeth to ensure production quality is uncompromised during the reorganisation process.
The production lines have been consolidated into a single platform for Isuzu light commercial vehicle assembly.
Isuzu Motors Limited recently announced its intention to buy the General Motors plant in South Africa as well as GM’s 30% shareholding in Isuzu Trucks South Africa.
