TÖNNJES opens first production site in West Africa

Delmenhorst/Dakar. At the request of the national Ministry of Infrastructure, Land Transport and Development (French: Ministère de Infrastructures, des Transports Terrestres et du Désenclavement – in short, MITTD), the Republic of Senegal wanted to optimise the registration and inspection of vehicle registration plates in 2018. The aim of the project: a uniform process from the registration to the inspection of vehicles. Together with its partner company Gemalto, TÖNNJES decided to set up its first own production site in Dakar to supply 20 licensed embossing shops in the country with licence plate blanks in the following years. TÖNNJES therefore equipped its own production with a modern production line and a marking line in order to meet the Senegalese government's licence plate specifications. The location is intended to be the central starting point for all future orders in West Africa.
