WHO WE ARE
Isisa Motor Clinic is a brain child of Sisa Mbangxa founder of APMMA (African Panel beaters and Motor Mechanics Association) which is the non-profit organisation that represents the previously and presently dis-advantaged artisans in the automotive industry. The organisation was formed in 2009.
In November 2014 Sisa led APMMA when it lodged the complaint at the Competition Commission. The complaint was about the independent workshops to be allowed to service, maintain and repair in warranty vehicles without consumers or motorists losing their manufactures warranty. In March 2017 the Competition Commission ruled in APMMA’s favour and the process of developing the Code of conduct in competing in the automotive industry ensued.
Our journey led to the development of enforceable Guidelines for Competition in the S.A Automotive Aftermarket which were published on the 10th December 2020 and became effective on the 01st July 2021. This is a great victory for the S.A consumer/motorists, fleet management companies, artisans and entrepreneurs and the automotive industry at large. However, there is still a lot to be done to ensure that the artisans and entrepreneurs in the townships and rural areas benefit in this great victory. These artisans in the townships and rural areas do not have the state of the art workshops with proper tools and equipment to work on in warranty vehicles as opposed to their competitors, which are predominantly manufacturers dealerships.
Isisa Motor Clinic has been formed to ensure that all these challenges faced by the artisans/entrepreneurs in the townships and rural areas are addressed. Isisa want to ensure that the previously and presently dis-advantaged artisans in the automotive industry do fully benefit in the automotive industry mainstream and access to market brought by Automotive guidelines. If we fail to empower and capacitated these artisans/entrepreneurs the status quo will remain the same. Most importantly Isisa Motor Clinic would bring consumer confidence to the townships and rural motor mechanical workshops. Isisa will ensure that its franchisees meet and keep the required standards to service, maintain and repair consumer vehicles. Isisa Motor Clinic is the first 100% black owned automotive franchise in South Africa.
Why Choose Us?
Although the name Isisa Motor Clinic is new, the business started in 2014 under the name Siyakhanda Mobile Workshops. It started on the Mobile Workshop as a way of bridging the gap between informal and formal workshops. This has proven to be a success and now we have the physical workshop in Delmas. However, for rolling the brand national we felt it is necessary to rename the business to Isisa Motor Clinic.
Isisa Motor Clinic brings consumer confidence to the townships and rural motor mechanical workshops. Isisa will ensure that its franchisees meet and keep the required standards to service, maintain and repair consumer vehicles.
