The ANAMMCO Ltd, a leading vehicle manufacturing company in Nigeria, has started the manufacture and sale of Dongfeng Trucks meant to stand rugged roads and work-load in Nigeria and entire West Africa.
The Sales Manager of the company, Mr Olalekan Sanyaolu, said this during a road show to showcase Dongfeng Trucks within Enugu metropolis and its environs on Monday.
Sanyaolu noted that the new partnership between ANAMMCO and Dongfeng had made it possible for the production lines of ANAMMCO to bounce back, adding that it had created more jobs within Enugu and helped to conserve the nation’s foreign exchange earnings.
He said: “Dongfeng is one of the world leading truck manufacturers and number one in vehicle manufacturing in Asia for over 55 years dominance.
“With the partnership, ANAMMCO is manufacturing Dongfeng trucks in it truck plant manufacturing lines presently, since Mercedes pulled out of Nigeria; Dongfeng remains the only company that has a product (truck) that could fit-in in the manufacturing lines initially built on Mercedes rugged specifications.
“Dongfeng truck is very low emission vehicles and the tracks have high efficiency, strength and durability rate as well as availability and guaranty of genuine spare parts with Dongfeng logos.
“The trucks are low fuel consumption rate of 20 litres for every 100 kilometres (for normal truck) and 25 litres for every 100 kilometres for the long trucks.
“It has a strong shock absorbing and spring system meant to carry loads and withstand rugged road comfortably; while the interior of the trucks are well-designed and air conditioned to provide maximum comfort.
“The spare parts and after-sales support services for the trucks can be gotten within major metropolis of major cities in West Africa.”
The sales manager noted that the partnership with the Chinese company, Dongfeng, was a fallout of the renewed synergy and co-operation between Nigeria and China.
“The recent direct current swap agreement between Nigeria and China as well as ease of getting Chinese currency further made the partnership possible.
“However, the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to ensure that businessmen and women get enough of the exchange to be able to complete business deals on time.
“Placing limit or making genuine investors have the Chinese currency in trenches slows down business. The CBN have to really work on this since the Nigeria-China relationship had started yielding positive fruits,” he said.
On the road show, the ANAMMCO-Dongfeng trucks train passed through Enugu-Onitsha road, Enugu-Abakaliki road, Enugu-Port Harcourt road, Chime Avenge, Bisalla Road, Okpara Avenue, Ogui road – among others – within and at the outskirt of Enugu metropolis.
