The process has commenced for the emergence of twenty indigenous automobile engineers who would be trained in Israel to constitute the first batch of staff members employed in the MIMSHAC car assembly plant located in Itu local government area of the state.
MIMSHAC, an automobile company partnering with the State for the Car Factory, is currently conducting practical interviews for qualified automobile engineers who would be further equipped with the necessary skills required for car assemblage in the plant.
This practical interview comes after the engineers were properly put through the theoretical aspect of the assessment process.
The Chief Executive Officer of MIMSHACK, Mr. Valentino Nnaemeka Okorie stated that the practical interview was conducted to select qualified automobile engineers for the training that would take place in Israel.
He lauded Governor Udom Emmanuel for facilitating the seamless establishment of the first automobile assembling plant in the Niger Delta region of Africa.
Mr. Okorie said that the company will establish the first fully-automated oil filtering manufacturing factory in Africa in addition to the car assembling plant which according to him, will employ over three thousand Akwa Ibom indigenes.
MIMSHAC’s Israeli partner, Mr Ronen Golan, appreciated Governor Udom Emmanuel for affording them the opportunity to invest in Akwa Ibom which he is particularly proud of and assured the press that the assembling of automobiles will begin in earnest at the plant in November 2022.
Mr Okorie said that MIMSHAC constructed the plant in partnership with the Isreali to ensure they transfer their technology to the qualified engineers who will work at the plant.
He assured the engineers that MIMSHAC intends to source for consumables and furniture locally from small and medium-scale businesses.
The automobile engineers who hail from Akwa Ibom, expressed satisfaction at the professionalism of the practical interview process and thanked Governor Emmanuel for establishing the car assembling plant which will provide employment opportunities for them.
