Jerry used to work for the Ford Motor Company in the USA before he returned to Nigeria to set up his own auto company. Germaine Auto Centre, which has accredited automobile dealership with Toyota, Kia, and Peugeot franchises, is located in a high-income surburb of Lagos, Nigeria’s most populated city.
In a country where most auto garages are poorly equipped and are notorious for dishonesty, Jerry decided to set his business apart by tooling up with the latest technology. This helped Germain to carve a niche for itself in the already crowded auto repair market.
With a focus on cars, light trucks and commercial cuses, his company has grown quite rapidly. He recently acquired a 20,000sqm property in the hinterland to serve the Nigerian northern region.
