MTI strategises African entry for B’desh company

MTI Consulting facilitated a Bangladesh business conglomerate, the Gemcon Group, to explore Ethiopia (with the rest of Africa to follow) for mainstream infrastructure and engineering business through MTI’s Associate in Ethiopia.

A Gemcon delegation visited Addis Ababa recently.

Gemcon Limited is one of the largest manufacturers of Spun Pre-stressed Concrete (SPC) poles in Bangladesh. Since its formation in 1980, Gemcon Limited has made it possible for urban and rural areas of Bangladesh to benefit from electricity distribution. The company has decided to expand their operations beyond Bangladesh and has enlisted MTI Consulting to assist their entry to the electricity distribution market in Africa.

Ethiopia, the second fastest growing economy in Africa, was selected as a starting point for market entry and via MTI’s Associate in Ethiopia - BCaD Consulting, a delegation from Gemcon Limited recently visited the capital of Addis Ababa. During the trip, the delegation from Bangladesh visited an Ethiopian SPC manufacturing plant.
