Mecatherm, the world’s leader in the industrial equipment manufacturer, is seeking African financiers to invest in the company. The French company’s Head of Business Development, Raymond Nogael, assured potential investors that their investments would be safeguarded to ensure they recoup returns them within the shortest possible time.
“We want local investors from Africa to invest in our business,” he said. He expressed confidence at the continent’s growth prospects. “Africa is going to grow, so it is our way of partnering businesses and governments in Africa to provide jobs for the people,” Nogael said.
Mecatherm, according to him, opened an office in Dubai in October 2013, dedicated to the African and Middle Eastern markets. Among African countries where Mecatherm recently installed its equipment include Algeria, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, Mauritius, Democratic Republic of Congo and Tunisia, Nogael mentioned.
The company manufactures equipment for ovens, machines and automatic production lines for industrial bakeries. The Group produces a wide range of solutions, from a single machine to a turn-key project, and works close with its customers from conceiving the whole project to the start-up of the operation, Nogael said.
It exclusively produces equipment for industrial bakery, excluding any equipment or oven for small-size bakeries. For 50 years, the Group accompanies many of the current market leaders from their first automated production line up to their current pool, constituted – for some of them – of more than 30 automated production lines, Nogael stated.
