Pretoria - Ford Motor Company Southern African in Silverton is set to add a third shift that will add 1200 new jobs from August.
This announcement was made by managing director Neale Hill who bragged about the giant Silverton assembly plant based in the City of Tshwane.
The plant is responsible for supplying cars across South Africa and 148 other countries across the globe by producing 520 cars daily.
The new shift will ensure that a staggering 720 cars are produced since the company has been training hundreds of youths, including 104 skilled artisans and technicians.
Ford had done significantly well under tough economic conditions to get to a point whereby it created hundreds of jobs for youthful “first time workers” while other big companies struggled and let go of workers.
