Localisation and Growth


Increased levels of localisation and supporting the industry’s growth are the key objectives of this programme. This programme aims to leverage support to drive R100 million new localisation value per annum for DAC members with multiple OEMs and to support the goals of B-BBEE in the auto industry.

Project Specific Localisation Support

The DAC aims to support Tier 1, Tier 2, and Raw Material firms to deliver R50 million in new localisation value per annum. Encouraging localisation is key to increasing the competitiveness and growth of the automotive industry in South Africa.

Buyer – Supplier Linkages

Via the National Localisation Indaba, the DAC aims to deliver R50 million in new localisation value per annum. The DAC also aims to advance the competitiveness and access to product and process technology. A key element in the growth of companies is access to current technologies. A key objective of the DAC therefore is to ensure that we help to facilitate growth and competitiveness within the industry by working with our members to increase their access.

Infrastructure and Sustainability Support

The DAC looks to continually support developments on localisation and growth within the KZN region. As such, support of the Automotive Supplier Park development as well as firm-level sustainability initiatives are key objectives.
