THE Nelson Mandela Bay motor industry has received a major boost with the launch of NMMU’s new Centre for Rubber Science and Technology at its south campus.
The centre will focus on providing analytical, technical services and training for the needs of rubber and tyre manufacturing industries in South Africa.
Centre director Dr Percy Hlangothi said it was committed to remaining relevant to the region’s needs.
“[It] will not only house research projects relevant to the industry and community needs, but will also offer learning programmes [short and long] and support services to benefit the industry,” he said.
