Major international automotive corporations use South Africa as a source of vehicle components and completed vehicles for both domestic and international markets. As an example, in 1973 South Africa became the first country outside Germany to produce BMWs. This underlines the importance of the South African automotive industry to the economy, both in terms of employment and foreign earnings.
The significance of this industry in South Africa has led motor vehicle manufacturers to recognise the benefits of integrated security and risk management solutions that not only protect people and assets (including plant, vehicles and components), but that – more importantly – make a direct contribution towards improved standards and production costs in this highly competitive industry.
Omega Risk Solutions’ five-tiered model enhances the management and control of sub-security systems through various technology platforms. By designing customised solutions based on the five tiers, Omega is able to meet the distinctive requirements of each client, and this can be seen in its achievements on behalf of its motor vehicle manufacturing clients.
