As the popularity of its heavy-duty vehicles continues to spread in Nigeria through the efforts of its franchise company, Transit Support Services Ltd (TSS), there are indications that the Chinese manufacturer is desirous of consolidating on the remarkable success so far achieved by the brand.

Part of the plan is the expansion of the existing sales and after-sales network and the establishment of a Shacman assembly plant in Nigeria to produce the heavy and medium-duty trucks, as well as road tractors which have endeared themselves to the local market.

Towards achieving this goal, the General Manager of Shaanxi Heavy Duty Automobile Import & Export Co. Ltd, manufacturer of Shacman heavy and medium-duty vehicles, Mr. Tian Chao, will be arriving Nigeria this week to meet the brand’s distributor, TSS and some major customers.

Both Shacman and TSS believe that a CKD plant assembling the vehicles locally will contribute to the development of the country’s automobile sector and encourage the transfer of technology from China to Nigeria.
