WELCOME SPEECH BY THE PRESIDENT OF COSCHARIS GROUP DR. COSMAS MADUKA, CON AT THE MEDIA LAUNCH OF THE COSCHARIS FORD SKD PLANT IN LEKKI ON FRIDAY, 13TH OCTOBER, 2017.

It is my singular honour and privilege to welcome you to this special event, which is to officially unveil our newly built Assembly Plant to you all as our media partners which is the first ever Ford Assembly Plant in Nigeria and indeed the entire Sub-Sahara Africa.

It has been a long wait from when we first announced in November 2015 that we had commenced physical structuring of the new Plant sighted on a piece of land of more than 14 Hectares within our Lekki Group head office in Lagos. Thus we are thankful to God that the day has finally come when you all shall witness the actual process of production taking place right here, in the Plant.

Indeed it is a dream come true.  Coscharis Group have been a great believer on the possibilities that lie ahead in this our great Nation and we have shown courage by the actions that we are taking in investing in the future of Nigeria.

Although we are here today, to unveil our newly built Assembly Plant for Ford brand but you are all aware of the giant steps Coscharis Group has taken in the last few years in the Agricultural Sector of our economy.

Today’s event is to showcase another initiative from our great organization, Coscharis Motors Plc, to further create value as a leading player in the automotive industry in Nigeria, in response to the clarion call of the Federal Government of Nigeria through the National Automotive Industry Development Plan (NAIDP). This is also to appreciate the confidence that the globally respected iconic brand, FORD, reposed in us as their exclusive official representative in Nigeria to roll out the very first Ford Assembly Plant in Nigeria. This milestone marks another first in the evolution of our company towards remaining timeless in its relevance.

The National Automotive Industry Development Plan aims, among other objectives, to discourage the importation of Completely Built vehicles and encourage the local manufacturing of vehicles through either Complete Knocked Down or Semi Knocked Down facilities for a start. We are aware that a few automobile companies have also initiated their process towards achieving this objective. However, at Coscharis Motors Plc, our concern and commitment to our loyal customers and stakeholders is to, as usual, set standards that other players will be judged by in the industry.

At the moment, our focus at the Plant is to rollout the Ford Ranger, which is a multipurpose mini-truck that serves well for both work and leisure. As you are all aware, Ford has a global standard for all of its products including the Ranger. Therefore, Ford’s certification of our facility and output is a confirmation that every single Ranger that rolls out of this plant is indeed “Built Ford Tough” from which we’ve rolled out over 600 units from this facility since we started operation; some of which are on display outside. But we will not rest on our oars as we are sure to wax stronger into the future with the introduction of other great Ford variants into the assembly line.

It might be news worthy to mention here that this is a capital intensive project, which also involves huge financial, technical and human resources commitment. Therefore the fact that we have ventured into it headlong underpins the level of confidence and hope we have for the future of the Nigerian automotive industry. This is to underscore the human capital opportunities that stand to be delivered in terms of employment and by extension the multiplier effect on the economic development of our dear country, Nigeria.

We have always dreamt of a Nigeria that will take its place in the global arena, a Nigeria that sits among the egalitarians in the committee of Nations, taken its rightful place in the pages of history.  Our factory is the second ever Ford manufacturing outfit in the entire African continent, outside of South Africa; something we indeed, are very proud of.  By this, Coscharis as an organization, reinforces its belief in the Nigerian project that this is the only country we have and absolutely nothing else.

So we have taken the challenge for our generation as a result of this huge investment we’ve taken as a strong believer in our dear country as an entity, we can only but demand for governmental support in terms of enabling environment vis-à-vis basic infrastructures that are required to keep the manufacturing process on and more importantly the purchase patronage of the finished products from the Plant.

Nelson Mandela once said that sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great and I say we can be that great generation but the only true way to let our greatness blossom is to dignify it via action.  It is therefore in reflection of all of these realities and celebration of the future possibilities that lies ahead, that we are gathered here today.

Once again, we are highly honoured for honoring our invitation to this special event as I invite you to join me and my team on a facility tour of this our state – of – the – art facility.

Thank you and God bless.

FORD AND COSCHARIS DELIGHT CUSTOMERS WITH DISCOUNTED SERVICE PARTS

LAGOS, Nigeria, DATE – In its quest to continually deliver quality aftersales service with genuine parts to its numerous loyal customers, Ford and its sole dealer in Nigeria, Coscharis Motors Plc, is giving out 10% discount on some select ford parts from now till end of September, 2017. This is in line with its commitment to safety and maintenance of its customers’ vehicles at various locations across the country.

According to Abiona Babarinde, General Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communications at Coscharis Group, “this aftersales campaign is timely and strategic to sustaining our leadership status when it comes to delivering value for money as it relates to our loyal customers.” Abiona further stated, “There is no gain-saying that the economic situation in the country has affected so many things including vehicle maintenance. This is the more reason why we have taken it upon ourselves as a customer-centric brand to give our loyal customers some relief in this challenging period. We want to excite our customers with these offerings of 10% discount on some select parts like brake, shocks, battery and service parts to cushion their expenses at this period at our various aftersales service centres and Quick Lane facilities that are now in many neighbourhoods across the country.”

To confirm the readiness of the company to the success story of this campaign, the National Parts Manager, Coscharis Motors Plc, Cyril Cruz said “we are fully stocked with all required genuine parts in all our aftersales centres which brings our service closer to you to make this campaign successful. We don’t want our customers to settle for substitutes. As has been proven again and again, counterfeit or substandard parts and lubricants may appear cheap in the beginning but in the long run, it is penny wise and pound foolish.”

Cyril maintained that substandard parts will appear to be working while they are in actual sense inflicting more damage on the vehicle. He also averred that Ford genuine parts come with manufacturer warranty and would be replaced under warranty if found to be faulty.

 

The programme also aims to promote the locations of the various Coscharis facilities that make up a comprehensive footprint in Nigeria, where it has 17 after-sales service centres as well as Certified Parts Wholesale Dealers (CPWD) partners and Ford-backed Quick Lane Tyre and Auto Centres.

Coscharis sees this as an ideal programme to build relationships with its Ford customers as their cars will be in safe hands. All the technicians working at the Ford dealerships are factory-trained and Ford-certified. Only genuine Ford or Motorcraft replacement parts and approved lubricants are used when servicing vehicles at Coscharis ford Service Centres. Genuine parts and approved lubricants are also available through CPWD outlets.

CG-Eko LLP Training Academy Convocates 41 Auto Technicians Trained In Modern Automobile Repairs and Servicing

 

CG-Eko LLP Training Academy, a sister company to Coscharis Motors Plc, had her first convocation ceremony on Friday, August 4, 2017. The academy convocated graduands from 3 admission batches:1st batch 2013 – 2015; 2nd batch 2014 – 2016; 3rd batch 2015 – 2017.

This was made possible through the Public/Private partnership between Coscharis and the state government, resulting in the creation of the CG-Eko LLP Training Academy located in Ikeja, Lagos.

Speaking during the joint convocation ceremony at the academy, the President/CEO of Coscharis Group, Dr. Cosmas Maduka said “the main objective of the academy is to deliver value added human resources to fill the vacuum created by the dearth of professional technicians, who are supposed to drive the fast growing automotive industry sector of our economy into a bright future”.

He added that “since admitting the first set of trainees in 2013, the academy has successfully wheeled out 41 graduates till date. Majority of the graduands here today have been absorbed into our organisation, some employed by other organizations, while some have become after-sales facility entrepreneurs”.

Some members of the Management Executive Team of Coscharis Group with 2013 – 2015 batch of graduands at the Convocation Ceremony for Auto Technicians from CG – Eko Training Academy facilitated by Coscharis Group recently in Lagos.

Maduka who was represented at the ceremony by the Deputy Managing Director, Mr. Okey Nwuke also stated that “we are thankful that we were able to contribute meaningfully into your lives via the offering of this training platform and pray that God will grant you the will to put the acquired skills and training into meaning practice for the advancement of the automotive industry in particular, Nigeria at large and humanity as a whole”.

He recalled that “when Coscharis Motors Plc, one of our subsidiaries in the group was to venture into the business of selling brand new globally respected iconic vehicles, we were guided by our vision, ”to build an institution that is timeless in its relevance”.

“At that point we knew that in order to remain timeless in our relevance to the automotive industry, we needed to do more than selling new vehicles – we needed to also establish an after-sales support base which will help to keep our customers’ vehicles on the road, performing optimally at all times. Because of the dearth of qualified technicians in the industry at the time, we had to embark on hiring of expatriates from other countries to man our after-sales facilities.”

In his remarks, the Training Manager, Mr. Sunday Tanimowo who revealed that the first batch of students were admitted August 1, 2013, affirmed that “without any iota of doubt, l can boldly say to all present that the graduands have passed through series of professional hands- on theoretical and practical training in the field of automobile engineering ranging from automobile repairs, service, maintenance, troubleshooting, automobile technology, workshop practice, digital electronics, leadership, management, CRM and  product knowledge”.

According to him, “in the first batch, 18 started journey in August 2013 but only 17 completed the rigorous training; Next are the second batch graduands: 17 was admitted in August 2014, only 14 were able to complete the race; lastly, the third batch graduands:  14 started the race, only 10 sailed through the journey”.

Some members of the Management Executive Team of Coscharis Group with 2014 – 2016 batch of graduands at the Convocation Ceremony for Auto Technicians from CG – Eko Training Academy facilitated by Coscharis Group recently in Lagos.

The best graduating student who spoke on behalf of others stated that “the class of 2015 graduated 17 students and 15 were employed by Coscharis group.  These students have in their individual ways distinguished themselves in the various departments they have been assigned.

“Fourteen students graduated in 2016 and 4 were employed by the company. They too are becoming indispensable players in the after-sale department where they were assigned.

“The class of 2017 is graduating 10 students. It is my humble prayer that the management of Coscharis group do consider the exploits and impacts of those earlier employed from the academy and employ these dynamic class of 2017.

“Our amiable chairman, Dr. Cosmas Maduka is known for his big heart and accommodating nature and I plead that he stretches it a bit more to accommodate these promising young talented and skilled graduands.  To borrow the words of the late Nelson Mandela “A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination”.

In receiving the Sun’s Investor of the Year award, Dr. Maduka described it as a prized recognition for his struggles and challenges over the years which he had turned to opportunities to build a timeless organisation.

According to the organisers of the award, The Sun Publishing Limited, Dr Maduka had built a global brand with a local brand name in Coscharis having secured the confidence of globally respected auto brands with exclusive franchises of brands as BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Ford, MINI and Rolls Royce over the years as their representative in Nigeria. In his words, Eric Osagie, the Managing Director of The Sun Publishing Limited, ”we felt strongly that Dr Cosmas Maduka duly deserve this special award based on the fact that within a short time of diversifying into agriculture, the Coscharis Rice brand name has become an house hold name within the agro – allied sector.

COSCHARIS ORGANISED BMW GOLF CUP NATIONAL WINNER EMERGES

We are proud to announce the successful completion of this Year’s BMW Golf National championship hosted by Coscharis Motors at the Lakowe Lake Golf Club recently in Lagos. The championship was designed to reward our golf playing customers and select the gross winner to represent BMW Nigeria at the BMW World Golf International in Dubai next year.

The overall gross winner and national representative, Tunji Adebayo actually finished 3rd place in the men’s category 1 but achieved gross 79 to emerge the overall winner. He will be representing BMW Nigeria next year in Dubai at the Emirate Golf club from March 5 – 10, 2017.

Other winners in the men’s category 1 are: Boniface Obieze – First Place with Nett 70 and Michael Ikpoki – Second Place with Nett 73. For Men’s Category 2 first place went to Tony Tan with Nett 73, Femi Monehin (Nett 74) second place and Paul Brisibe (Nett 77) with third place.

 

Winners in the women’s category are first place – Hon. Rev. Mrs Tshola Williams (Nett 79) while Toyin Martins was second (Nett 82) and Chinyelu Onochie came third with Nett 87.

 

According to the overall gross winner, Tunji Adebayo, he is thrilled to have achieved the status of the national representative and looks forward to ably representing the proudly Nigerian brand in Dubai next year. “It is a magic feeling, and I will not forget this winning for a long time”.

 

For the golfers, it is a dual fun to be rewarded for doing what they enjoy and that’s the beauty in any game. They complimented the BMW representative – Coscharis Motors, “for holding such a fantastic tournament and we are already looking forward to next year’s competition”.

 

For Coscharis, as the exclusive representative of the globally respected iconic auto brand of BMW, it’s always a privileged opportunity to host our ever loyal BMW customers and hot prospects alike in a relax environment enjoying the beautiful sport of Golf. You will all agree with me that this period of the year is just perfect to say thank you for your patronage through the year despite all odds, says Dr Cosmas Maduka, President/CEO of Coscharis Motors, who was represented by Mr Fred Amobi, the Group Executive Director, Operations.

Our expectation is that our top winner from this national qualifier will not only represent us at the BMW World Golf but will return as the first ever winner of the “Major” from Sub Sahara Africa. But all the same, we congratulate all our winners and players who have showed the sporting spirit which is so much part of the game of golf.

dsc_5717

Each year BMW presents the opportunity for club golfers from around the world – a chance to participate in amateur golf’s only “Major.” It’s called the BMW Golf Cup International and it’s entered by over 1000 golfers from 50 countries, culminating in a 54 hole competition on one of the most beautiful golf resorts on the planet. This year’s event culminates in Dubai at the Emirate Golf club from March 5 – 10, 2017.

From a customer-centric perspective, we have always moved courses each year we have hosted this event. As a matter of fact, this event is organised in order to ensure that all our customers and prospects get equal chance to participate and enjoy the amazing feel and experience of the BMW Golf World Final.

In the past, we have hosted the BMW Golf national qualifiers at the Le Meridian Golf Club in Uyo, IBB Golf Club, Abuja, Ikoyi Club, Ikoyi but this is our first with Lakowe, which currently ranks among the biggest courses in West Africa.

Our plan is to, at least, sponsor the overall top player to an all expense paid trip towards representing our local market at the BMW world championship. And this is why we have insisted that the BMW National Final is an official golf tournament and must be played according to the official rules.

Playing in the BMW Golf Cup World Final is once in a lifetime experience as every participant can only qualify for the World Final once in their lifetime. As a standard rule players are expected to either be first time participants or mustn’t have participated in the last 5 events (World Final 2011-2015).

We are offering a 2 year complementary service and free insurance for any purchase or commitment within this yuletide period.
