Entreprise Nationale des Véhicules Industriels (National Company of Industrial Vehicles) is an Algerian company also known as SNVI that produces trucks and buses since 1967.[1] SNVI is a subsidiary of Société Nationale de Construction Mecanique (SONACOME, National Mechanical Construction Company).[1]


Sonacome, the parent company of SNVI was founded by the Algerian government on August 9, 1967 through ordonnance 67-150. It inherited French-era's Berliet factories and equipment after the latter ceased operations by 1973.[1]


SNVI's headquarters are located in Rouiba, 30 km to the east of Algiers, with branches in Hussein Dey, Constantine, Oran and Ouargla.[1]


In 2011, the company has made 2007 vehicles. Its ambition is to resume with its 1980s production rate, that was reaching 6000 vehicles per year.[2]
