About ASCCI Empowerment Portal

A priority for ASCCI is to increase the participation of black owned companies in the automotive value chain. Given the scarcity of black-owned suppliers to the local automotive industry, identifying qualifying suppliers for development or to entrench into value chains is an onerous task, and one that requires a coordinated effort from industry. 

ASCCI’s Empowerment Portal represents the outcome of this coordinated industry effort. It offers a streamlined interface between black owned manufacturers, and automotive suppliers and OEMs by providing:

  • A database of black owned manufacturers in South Africa
  • A high-level assessment of the manufacturers
  • A framework to identify and assess new black owned manufacturers on an ongoing basis

New black owned manufacturers will be added to the database on an ongoing basis.
