Flexenclosure has set up a new company in one of its key markets – Nigeria. The new company – Flexenclosure Technology Solutions – is a wholly owned subsidiary of Flexenclosure AB in Sweden and will serve Flexenclosure’s operations and growing number of customers in the West African region. It will be headquartered in Victoria Island, Lagos, the business hub for all major telecommunications and multi-national companies in Nigeria.
Flexenclosure has already deployed hundreds of eSites, its trademark hybrid power system for off-grid and bad-grid cell sites, in Africa and is in the process of deploying significantly more as a result of recent orders. Flexenclosure deployed several hundred eSites for Airtel in Nigeria as early as 2011 and has also built 15 data centres across the country.
‘Having built our first data centre in Nigeria back in 2001, the country has been a key market for us for many years,’ said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure. ‘With the Nigerian and broader West African markets rapidly expanding, we are investing in growing our local presence such that we can continue to offer fast product deployment and world class support to our customers there. Establishing Flexenclosure Technology Solutions is a clear statement of our long term commitment to the country.’
Flexenclosure Technology Solutions will be headed by Adekunle Adeyemi. Mr Adeyemi has worked in the telecommunications industry for over 10 years in a number of African countries. He will be supported by a local team comprising finance, logistics, operations and technical customer support functions.
