What We Do

The Tshwane Automotive Special Economic Zone (TASEZ) provides a secure high tech business environment for manufacturers within the automotive sector.

We are located in a prime position, offering world-class manufacturing and logistics infrastructure that supports freight-orientated activities, accommodating both containerised goods and roll on-roll off equipment that will require access to rail connectivity to South Africa’s ports. Investors will find ease of access to South Africa’s major north-south and east-west road corridors.

In addition, we provide a number of additional value-added business solutions to support businesses within the precinct. We have a professional team of sector specialists who ensure TASEZ retains its competitiveness. They are able to link both investors and developers to various regulatory bodies and help facilitate the development process.

Our partners also provide support. The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition provide financial support for investor-related infrastructure through its Special Economic Zone (SEZ) Fund, while the Gauteng Department of Economic Development and the City of Tshwane provide financial support and resources necessary to manage and implement the SEZ.

We support investors through:

  • A wide range of incentives including for skills development, job creation and moving of assets from abroad;
  • Customised solutions such as serviced sites or fit-for-purpose buildings;
  • Environmental impact assistance (where applicable);
  • Using a clustering development approach;
  • Marketing and other value-added services;
  • ICT service-based infrastructure that allows for high-speed connectivity; and
  • Export marketing.

Investors in TASEZ will find themselves based in South Africa’s knowledge centre: the City of Tshwane is home to all but one of the country’s national research bodies as well as three acclaimed universities, the University of Pretoria, the University of South Africa, and the Tshwane University of Technology.
