The Tata International Africa Story
We have walked a long road in Africa with every day, hard-working, inspirational and dedicated consumers and employees. We entered the African market in 1977 when we created Tata Zambia, a business mainly involved in the import of Tata vehicles into the African nation, along with marketing and providing after-sales services. Exploration of opportunities then spread into other African markets including South Africa, and in 1994 Tata Africa Holdings was established in Johannesburg, South Africa. Johannesburg still serves as our group’s headquarters on the continent. With an African presence spanning 12 countries, we are immensely proud of our ever-growing and developing African family, which provides valuable
skills and expertise in automotive, engineering, mining, telecommunications, information technology, farming and farm equipment, chemicals, and healthcare products. Customers have welcomed our quality products into their homes and businesses and have, through their commitment to our brand, helped shape our community initiatives. At the heart of every interaction we undertake, we remain unwavering in our passion to help build a more prosperous Africa for all through dedicated education, entrepreneurship and health initiatives and to do everything we can to empower communities through varying social and economic opportunities.
