The Automotive Supplier Park in East London was completed in March of 2007. It is a manufacturing plant for motor parts. The Automotive Supplier Park was developed to accommodate the just-in-sequence component suppliers that support the Mercedes-Benz C Class production line in East London. The 85 000m² first phase of the ASP was implemented on a fast-track regime with design and construction completed in less than one year.

The project included a combination of industrial and administrative blocks, as well as facilities for the logistics contractor responsible for the livery of pre-assembled components to the Mercedes-Benz South Africa factory. Phase 4 of the project also included a 4000 bay vehicle storage centre that allowed for the loading of Mercedes-Benz cars onto truck for distribution around the country.
