Snr Supply Chain Lead At Automobile Company


At Garage we care about making driving safe and affordable across Africa. We believe no one
should ever have to drive an unsafe car because they can’t afford maintenance or find the right
maintenance partner. So every waking hour we obsess about reducing the cost of car ownership
for car owners in Africa. We achieve this by working with global parts distributors, mechanic
shops, insurance companies and fleet owners and by building innovative software solutions to
reduce the cost of parts and help customers find the right maintenance partner.
