Rosslyn, near Pretoria, one of the major motor manufacturing centres in South Africa, is to get a supplier park at an eventual development cost of about $US100 million, writes Dave Cumming.

The project is an initiative of the Gauteng provincial government and the development will occupy a 1.1 million square metre area which will accommodate 200 sites ranging from 2,000 sq m to more than 20,000 sq m in size.

It will house a variety of types of suppliers and the government sponsors say the aim is to ensure the global competitiveness and sustainability of the South African motor industry through making shared services available and improving the logistics of manufacturing operations.

The first tenant, a component manufacturer, will take up occupation in December in a 20,000 sq m factory and a further eight are in talks with Blue IQ, the management entity set up by the government.

Among the major manufacturers based at Rosslyn are BMW and Nissan.
