Volkswagen SA opens a Ghana assembly plant

With an assembly plant planned in Ghana next November, Volkswagen South Africa (VWSA), a subsidiary of the German automaker of the same name, is consolidating in West Africa and confirms its expansion on the continent.

The installation will be done through a joint venture with Universal Motors, its historic partner in Accra, according to VWSA CEO Thomas Schaefer, who says the final details will be finalized in the next 4 weeks.

The automaker previously signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ghanaian government last September to establish a vehicle assembly facility in the country and assess the feasibility of introducing a modern mobility concept.

The group has assembly plants operating in Nigeria, Rwanda and Kenya and soon Ethiopia.
