PARIS Feb 4 France's PSA Group, the
maker of Peugeot, Citroen and DS cars, said on Saturday it had
signed a contract to start assembling two car models in Kenya.
PSA, which wants to reduce its dependence on European sales,
will assemble the Peugeot 508 and 3008 models from kits of
pre-assembled modules with local partner URYSIA, its
long-standing Kenyan importer and distributor.
The venture will initially produce about 1,000 vehicles
annually, PSA said. The Peugeot brand previously assembled
vehicles in the east African country between 1974 and 2002.
