OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is a category of news that either comes from truck and bus manufacturers themselves or which relates specifically to their businesses globally or in South Africa and the Southern Africa region. Frequently, the content in this category deals with new products and services that OEM companies either produce or make available and which are of interest to road transport operators in South Africa and the Southern Africa region as a whole. Expect to find investment news here - for example - a new production/manufacturing or assembly plant built in South Africa to serve local clients. The same goes for news of OEM companies that decide to leave South Africa or merge with other transport-related companies. Original Equipment Manufacturers may also announce new acquisitions, changes in supplier agreements or partnerships - this category covers all of these developments, too. So the category not only relates to vehicles, but to parts and components as well.
