HUMMER kicks off H3 assembly in South Africa

Recommended Posts

10 Oct 2006 , Port Elizabeth, South Africa : General Motors today celebrated the start of production of the HUMMER H3 at its Struandale Assembly Facility in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The occasion represents an important step in the global expansion of HUMMER by providing increased capacity and a global version of the H3 for markets outside North America.

HUMMER H3 vehicles built in South Africa will be exported to markets in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Production of a right-hand drive version will begin in the second quarter of 2007 for export into right-hand markets in Europe and Asia as well as for local sale in South Africa.

GM announced the $100 million investment in its South African operations last year. Robert Socia, president and managing director of GM South Africa described the project as, "one of the most important milestones in the history of GM in South Africa." He said, "It's significant that GM chose to place the H3 contract with South Africa as it says a lot about the confidence GM has in our ability to deliver."
