On this occasion successful applicants will have the unique opportunity of displaying their products and services to VWSA, its suppliers and other automotive OEMS, towards the real possibility of securing significant contracts.
This process stems from VWSA’s determination to increase its business with black-owned suppliers in order to continue our support for the transformation process in South Africa.
The company views the issue of procurement from black-owned suppliers as a
priority from both a moral and legislative compliance perspective.
Organisations 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, are also invited to apply.
Successful organisations would possess some or all of the following:
- A minimum of
51% black ownership (incl Coloured, Indian and Chinese as per Codes)
- A minimum of
30% female ownership
- Ownership or Management by disabled person/s
- Level 1 and 2 B-BBEE contributors
- Organisations willing to acquire or in process of acquiring significant black/female ownership
- Ownership or management by war veterans
- While VWSA is seeking primarily component manufacturers, non-manufacturing suppliers are also welcome to apply.
Black-Owned QSE and EME*organisations are particularly encouraged to apply.
Exempted Micro-Enterprise (EME) is a business that has an annual turnover of R10 million or less OR a business that is less than 1 year old. A Qualifying Small Enterprise (QSE) is a business with an annual turnover between R10 Million and R50 Million.
