In February 2007, Chief Innocent teamed up with some Chinese manufacturers in producing commercial vehicles and had it displayed during the International Auto Trade Fair held at Beverly Hills Hotel in 2009.

Commission on October 15th 2010, under the regime of President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Peter Obi, Chief Innocent vowed that the Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing will produce vehicles that are both affordable and reliable for use.
