With a view to eradicating tokunbo cars from Nigeria, Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) was founded as the premier car manufacturing company in the country. Today, let’s break into an Innoson car factory in Anambra State to figure out how Innoson cars are produced, from the welding to the smoothing, Astro Coat’s dipping, how it goes to the painting booth as well as the way it goes to the oven, among others.

Starting with the engine department, here all accessories and parts are complete and in pristine condition before being mounted on the Innosons. After being set up A/C systems, the vehicle will be moved to quality control.

Even IVM workers cannot know how long all the processes normally take since calculating the exact time expended on a specific Innoson depends on an array of factors. They can just say that they build 10 small buses per day on average. So how about the production process of bigger workhorse such as the IVM 6800, 6857 and 6601?

The engineers reveal that all steps are almost the same barring several variations. Since bigger vehicles cannot fit entirely into the dipping vat, materials will be pretreated with Astro Coat. Certainly, painting areas are likewise larger to paint big buses. Further, chassis and carcass are hung with an overhead crane and are assembled on top of a mechanics pit to access engine department.
For Innoson cars like the Jeeps whose chassis are along with the car body, they’re moved via a conveyor atop the production line in order that workers are able to access underneath to fix components and important fittings onto the chassis.
