Volkswagen South Africa to host its first Black-Owned Suppliers Day


The Volkswagen Group of South Africa has invited black-owned suppliers to participate in its first ever Black-Owned Suppliers Day.

The event will take place at VWSA’s People Pavilion in Uitenhage, on Thursday, 5th May 2016.

Successful applicants will have the unique opportunity of displaying their products and services to VWSA, its suppliers and other automotive OEMs, with a certain possibility of securing significant contracts.  Companies that supply manufactured components or services and non-automotive related products and services, including organisations in the defence/military, agricultural, mining, IT services and other related manufacturing industries that would benefit from diversification, have been invited to apply.

Successful organisations must have a minimum of 51 percent black ownership (includes Coloured, Indian and Chinese as per B-BBEE guidelines) and/or a minimum of 30 percent black female ownership. Other key requirements that VWSA is looking for are companies that are owned or managed by disabled persons or war veterans.

While VWSA is seeking primarily component manufacturers, non-manufacturing suppliers are also welcome to apply.
