The Ford Auto Plant was unveiled on Friday 13th of October, 2017 by Dr Cosmas Maduka (President/CEO Coscharis Group). The plant which sits on a 14 Hectare land in Lekki is one of the success stories of Coscharis Group and this was aided by the Federal Government of Nigeria’s National Automotive Industry Development Plan (NAIDP).
This is the second Ford plant in Africa after South Africa and so far, 600 units of Ford Rangers have been rolled out of the Lagos Assembly plant since it commenced operation. At the moment, the facility will focus on the Ranger Trucks and venture into other product lines in the near future.
I can attest to the ruggedness of the Locally assembled Ranger Trucks after taking one for an extreme off-road test drive when I visited this facility.
