How Auto Assembly Plants Will be Set up in Nigeria- Aminu Jalal

Mr. Aminu Jalal, the Director-General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), on Tuesday said auto plant investment in the country have been broken down into three stages.

According to him, “After about a year, they start with SKD 2 (Semi-Knocked Down), which is a painted body, bringing in the internal and external fittings.

“Then you move to SKD1 where you have a body that is not painted, you have to paint it and so on.

“Then you move to CKD 1 (Completely- Knocked-Down) when you have to weld all the pieces together, paint and do the assembly.

“ That is a transition in 12 months to the next phase,’’ he said according to The Nation.

Jalal, however, said that Innoson Motors had already started doing CKD.

He said Ashok-Leyland buses were CKD while Peugeot Automobile Nigeria (PAN) already had the full complement of investment in CKD and would start CKD in 2016.
