1.8    History of Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited Kaduna 

Humans’ desire for comfort has been the genesis of research and development, scientific discoveries leading to growth within his natural habitat and even beyond.

 

Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited which by all indications is leading vehicle manufacturing in the country, made its first impact in Nigeria for back as 1959. When a set of one hundred (100) units of Peugeot 403 cars were imported by individuals into the country within the period of two years, the product became so popular a result of its dependability, reliability, durability and suitability on Nigeria roads. Hence, it assumed the status of official car for government officials and wealthy business men.

 

This unprecedented achievement cause an increase in the demand for Peugeot cars in the country which led to the appointment of associated commercial organization Societe commerciale De-L’Ouest africain (SCOA) as the sole distributing agent government in 1959. In 1960 with brand development, the federal government of Nigeria in the early period of the 1970s extends into negotiation with automobile Peugeot of France to set up assembling plant in the country to produce vehicles for local consumption with the initial ownership structure as follows:

1)           Federal (government) Republic of Nigeria 35%

2)           Bank of Industries 5%

3)           Automobiles France 40%

4)           Kaduna state government 4.7%

5)           Katsina state government 5.3%

6)           Societe Commerciale De l’ Ouest Africain (SCOA) 5%

7)           United Trading Company (UTC)

 

The second phase of the historical background of PAN takes off from the privatization policy of the federal government of Nigeria. The policy offered great opportunities to indigenous companies to bid for and acquire majority shares in public enterprises. It was this policy that catalyzed a core investor, Messrs ASD motors Limited into acquiring majority share in PAN, leading to its eventual take over of PAN management year 2007. the change of management to the current one represent a paradigm shift, which may be described as new beginning with the current reference to the company as the new PAN. Spelling new hope, challenges and performance.

The new ownership structure of PAN reflects as follows:

1)           ASD motors Limited 55%

2)           Federal government of Nigeria 10%

3)           Automobiles Peugeot of France 10%

4)           Bank of Industries 5%

5)           Kaduna state government 4.7%

6)           Katsina state government 5.3%

7)           Societe Commerciale De’ l’ Ouest Afrricain (SCOA) 5%

8)           United Trading Company (UTC) 5%

 

The new PAN Limited has been restructured to enhance efficient and effective organizational performance as well as day to day activities/operations which is being overseen by the management team.
