VWSA received a Merit Award for Continuous Improvement in the SJM Flex Environmental Award Category, which is awarded to exporters who are ISO 14001 accredited and who pursue excellence in environmental management.

For the fourth year in a row, VWSA was awarded the Best Exporter OEM Award, which recognises manufacturers of original equipment for the automotive industry.

"Volkswagen has been the passenger car market leader for the last 7 consecutive years and continues to lead the market in 2017. The Polo and Polo Vivo which are produced in our Uitenhage factory, have been instrumental in our success, both locally and overseas," said Thomas Schaefer, Chairman and Managing Director: Volkswagen Group South Africa.

The Exporters Club was founded in the Eastern Cape 36 years ago and is aimed at organisations involved in exporting, either directly or indirectly, and for organisations with an interest in exporting. There are approximately 290 organisations on the database, including automotive, pharmaceutical, agricultural and services industries.

The judges for these awards come from varying backgrounds and represent different sectors.
