M&M to expand African footprint, plans manufacturing units in Sudan, Kenya

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) plans to increase localisation of its Scorpio pick-up at its factory in South Africa’s Durban, as it seeks to make deeper inroads into the adjoining African markets and get around trade barriers. The maker of XUV300 and Bolero is also looking to set up contract-manufacturing units in Kenya and Sudan, Arvind Mathew, chief of international operations, M&M, said.
