This week, General Motors announced that it would continue the rebuilding of its U.S. operations under a court supervised process. This is a progressive step which will position the company to succeed in an increasingly competitive and challenging U.S. automotive industry.
GM South Africa is not part of this filing in the U.S. and will not be affected by the measures announced. We are a self-sustaining operation and as such will continue to operate as normal, drawing on GM’s global resources for the same great product portfolio that has helped us become one of the leading automotive companies in Southern Africa today.
GM South Africa and our dealer partners will continue to provide full sales and after sales backing for all our vehicles including honouring all warranties, service and maintenance plans which we believe are the best in the industry. During the past four years alone, together with our dealer network, we have invested R4 billion in our joint operations to ensure that General Motors’ customers in Southern Africa receive the best products and services available.
More recently, we inaugurated a new R150 million Vehicle Conversion and Distribution Centre in Port Elizabeth, and we will soon break ground on our all new R250 million Pan-African Service Parts Distribution Centre. We are also happy to say that we have now received the first shipment of the highly anticipated Chevrolet Cruze so that our South African Engineering Centre can begin local validation testing prior to the start of sale later this year. These are simply a few tangible examples of our commitment to providing our customers in Southern Africa with the world class level of service you deserve.
We are proud of the General Motors (GMSA) long standing history in South Africa dating back to 1926, and we appreciate the loyalty of each and every one of our customers. We take our commitment to you very seriously, and look forward to building a bright future in this great country together.
