He also said, “As we mark this milestone in our journey of creating quality Nigerian-made vehicles, we are honoured to have you all join us for this momentous occasion”.

Innocent Chukwuma said that he is overjoyed to announce that Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Limited will be receiving the ISO 9001-2015 Quality Management Certificate as well as the MANCAP Certificates from the Standards Organisation of Nigeria. “This is a testament to our dedication to upholding international standards of quality and excellence in all aspects of our operations”.
