GMSA unaffected by Hummer demise

The announcement by General Motors that it will wind-down the Hummer brand will have no impact on General Motors' operations in South Africa.

In a statement on Thursday, GMSA said while it no longer distributed and sold Hummer vehicles, it remained fully committed to looking after its customers.

"Hummer customers can be assured that we will continue to offer full after sales support and that we will honour all warranty agreements," GMSA spokeswoman Denise van Huyssteen said.

She said that GMSA halted Hummer H3 production in May 2009 and the process of consolidating manufacturing operations at the Struandale production facility had commenced.

On Wednesday, GMSA's parent company in the United States said the deal to sell Hummer to a Chinese automaker had fallen through, forcing the company to shut down the loss-making brand.

Hummer is the third brand that GM has had to wind-down following its bankruptcy.
