This year marks the 17th time that FAW South Africa will participate at Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day – said to be the largest collection of agricultural exhibitions under private ownership in the southern hemisphere. This year’s event is scheduled for 15 to 18 May.

The annual event in Bothaville in the Free State has been attracting not only local agricultural role players, but also many visitors with an agricultural interest from across the country and from other continents, too.

“Last year’s interest in our stand and our vehicles was astounding,” says Jianyu Hao, CEO of FAW Vehicle Manufacturers South Africa. “Visitors to the stand remarked on the exceptional finish of our vehicles and our reasonable pricing.” 

This year FAW will attract visitors to its NAMPO display using locally produced trucks, ranging from the yet to be released FAW 8.140 Fully Automatic with Cummins engine, through to the new 420 hp FAW 33.420 truck tractor.

Showcasing different applications, the 8-t FAW 15.180FL in drop-side configuration, the FAW 16.240FL with Cattle Body, and a Truck Tractor model which is yet to be launched in South Africa will also be available for viewing.

“Our continued participation at NAMPO demonstrates our commitment to the farming community in South Africa,” says Hao. FAW vehicles have become increasingly popular, and the population in this sector is growing all the time. Apart from farming, the company caters to the mining, construction, distribution and long-haul sectors.

In 2017 FAW achieved its highest ever sales (more than 1 200 units – including exports) in what was – and still is – a tough and highly competitive commercial vehicle market. According to Hao, the local truck market in 2017 was the most competitive since FAW started operations in South Africa over 23 years ago.
