Fiat Chrysler Automobiles South Africa (FCA) enters a new business chapter in the country as it moves its head office operations to new facilities in Centurion.
“Our brands are ready for an exciting new chapter in their South African history, a next phase that requires an innovative environment for our committed head office team to take FCA to the next level,” says Ismaeel Hassen, Chief Executive Officer of FCA South Africa.
The FCA business is growing from strength to strength locally, as our market share increase, year-on- year, has shown. With these commercial successes, FCA’s requirements for head office infrastructure have evolved from its previous Midrand office, which it has occupied since October 2012. “The new building brings many attendant benefits to the business,” says Hassen. “Most importantly, it is better- suited to our current commercial strategy demands that see intent focus on system and process upgrades as well as training in pursuit of our constant attention to aftermarket service delivery and parts supply.”
The new environment has been designed to allow progressive ways of working – some led by global trends and others through extensive consultation with the staff – aimed at improving productivity as well as employee well-being.
“We have embraced technology, considered the evolving demands of our people and the way they want to work, and created a space that is authentically FCA, but entirely relevant to Southern Africa,” says Hassen. Work flows and processes have also been considered in creating an exciting, positive, and motivating space.
All of FCA’s brands – Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Jeep, Fiat Professional and Mopar – continue to be entrenched in the new décor as the team lives and breathes their success on a daily basis.
“We are excited at the opportunity to embrace a new energy in a fresh environment to continue building on our success, relevance and passion for our brands,” says Hassen.
