SAABC and ECAIF visit to Formex

19 July 2019

The South African Automotive Benchmarking Club (SAABC) and the Eastern Cape Automotive Industry Forum (ECAIF) had a study tour at Formex Industries in Port Elizabeth, on the 19th of July. Aligned with pillar 6 of the South African Automotive Masterplan that addresses technology and associated skills development, our study tour hosts are firms that are investing for the future, are advancing their skills set and are seeking innovative ways to maintain competitiveness. Future focussed industry expert Jendamark Automation will also contribute to this topic.

The SAABC and ECAIF’s study tour programme creates a platform for participants to gain practical insights to address a continually changing operating environment. Through the programme, participants will be challenged and inspired to reflect on their own internal programmes that drive continuous improvement, competitiveness and growth.
