Addressing journalists at the end of the event, Mr. Hardy said, already, the whole body of its Piaggio tricycles are fabricated locally.

“The aluminium is coming from local aluminium mills here”, he explained, adding, that “the steel is coming from locally produced steel. And like we said, we are producing windscreen locally too for Piaggio tricycle.

“We are talking with Techno-Glass about producing the windscreen locally for our Piaggio Tricycle. They now have a mould machine that can bend them, because our windscreen is a two way windscreen. So it’s very unusual. And it’s rolled as opposed to molded. They have the machine now. We are going to be going into prototype with them within the next few weeks.”

Also corroborating Mr. Hardy’s claims, the company’s General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Mr. Stanley Evans disclosed that Boulos’ assembled Tricycles are not only painted locally, but the paints used are locally sourced.

“What we are assembling has a high local content”, Mr. Evans reiterated. “We are also painting, totally committed to Nigeria, proudly Nigerian.”
