Nissan South Africa to double Rosslyn plant capacity.

By bne IntelliNews March 11, 2011
Nissan South Africa plans to double the capacity at its Rosslyn plant to 100,000 vehicles a year by 2015, Engineering News Online reported. The 100,000-unit production target will be a mix of Nissan and Renault vehicles, but with Nissan products far outweighing those of the French manufacturer, the portal quoted the company's managing director, Mike Whitfield, as saying. The forecast production growth will come from increasing sales in South Africa, as well as a full year of exports to Africa and Western Europe, the executive said. Nissan South Africa produced 48,000 vehicles in 2010, with production volumes projected to exceed 50,000 units in 2011.
