Canter assembly plant
The CFAO group, in conjunction with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), commissioned a FUSO assembly plant on November 16, 2017 at its Amuwo-Odofin, Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, Lagos, Nigerian facility.
Located in the Amuwo Odofin Industrial Area of Lagos, the plant capacity is expected to ramp up to 500 units a year with the production of the Canter truck, the market leader in its segment. The Canter truck has segment advantage in the areas of reliability, ruggedness, low maintenance cost and particularly meets the economic needs and requirements of the Nigerian end users.
The Nigerian FUSO plant shares MFTBC’s stringent quality standards and is the second FUSO truck plant in Africa.
With the commissioning of this plant, CFAO and MFTBC are targeting additional growth in the emerging Nigerian market by leveraging on their strengths, expertise, and efficient network. This local assembly plant greatly boosts job creation and local content development.
