Indongo Ford sets up shop in north

26 April 2019 | Events

Business tycoon Frans Aupa Indongo has done it again. This time around the businessman, who chairs the Frans Indongo Group, has opened a new vehicle dealership, Indongo Ford, at Oshakati's Continental Number One complex.

The dealership, which opened its doors recently, serves the entire north, including towns such as Ongwediva, Outapi and Ondangwa.

“I have been blessed with a long business life. During this period, spanning over a number of decades, I was particularly blessed to venture into a number of new business opportunities. Entrepreneurs have the obligation to identify and utilise opportunities, not only to their own benefit, but also to assist in the development of Namibia. The investment in Indongo Ford, which is small compared to some of our other investments, gives me extraordinary pleasure,” Indongo said.

“For many of you who know my background, you will appreciate that the establishment of Indongo Ford here at the Continental One complex is emotionally very special to me. It is here where I started decades ago, establishing myself as a Namibian businessman. This is here where I sweated, worried, persevered and through the grace of God almighty survived and conquered.”

Dealer principal of Indongo Ford Tanja Beukes said the Indongo Group's motor divisions employ more than 250 people ranging from managers to mechanics and sales personnel.

She added that the new Oshakati dealership has provided job opportunities to 23 people.

The Ford dealership is opened to offer convenient service to people in northern Namibia and it has a showroom and vehicle service and maintenance unit.

As an extension of the global Ford Motor Company based in Dearborn, Michigan, Indongo Ford has joined the Ford Motor Company of South Africa which has been an active participant in the South African motor industry since 1923.

All Ford vehicles offer smart technologies, stylish design, fuel efficiency, safety, and service and maintenance excellence at affordable prices, giving drivers peace of mind on the road and in their pockets. “It was in late 2015 when we decided to bring a remarkable motor brand, Ford, to the north. Our investment has been received with such excitement and we have seen only support from the residents in these towns of the north,” said Beukes.

“Team Indongo Ford is committed to earning customer loyalty by delivering sales and service experiences with high quality, excellent value, integrity and enthusiasm.”
