Also, the ex-University of Nigeria, Student Union Government’s Director of Transport praised the new National Automobile Policy as fostering development and thus encouraged this latest venture.

Schacman Truck’s entrance into the Nigeria Automobile Assembly Plant is an initiative between Transit Support Services Limited Chaired by Mr Frank Nneji and Shaanxi Heavy duty and Automobile Import and Export Coy Ltd , and would in the next 3 months roll out her new heavy-duty vehicles from the Emene Industrial estate premises of Anambra Motor Manufacturing Company (ANAMCO). It is expected that initially the Plant would assemble 3000 trucks annually and increase same with time as the Shaanxi team are impressed with the existing facilities at the site.
