Join us: We are off to a good start
As we begin the second quarter it is hard to believe the progress we have made.
On the staffing side, we hired Astrea Essandoh from Ghana to be our Chief Technical officer. He will oversea and have the responsibilities of managing our installations in Nigeria. He has NABCEP training and he has installed a few Wind and Solar systems in the United States and in Ghana. We are currently interviewing sales people to staff our office in Ladipo, Lagos.
Atlantic Waste & Power is the official factory representative of Senwei Energy Technologies in Africa and North America. They manufacture one of the best selling small wind turbine in Europe. They have UL, CE, TUV, IEC and other top certifications. This makes them one of the few manufacturers that can sell systems on every continent. We are receiving calls from Nigeria and Europe from people interested in purchasing their systems. We are listed on their website as official representative.
A.W.P.S visited to the North American Factory for SIEL. They are a manufacturer of residential and Industrial grade Inverters. They are headquartered in Italy and opened the factory in Parsipanny NJ last year. Luca Arcioni the sales manager was happy to welcome us and looks forward to building a small utility scale project with us in Nigeria.
The story of how we got started was featured in an online publication called Africa Business Jump Start. We got very good press, a few phone calls and a lot of emails. People were inspired by our story. The magazine gets over 500,000 visitors a month. It is a good resource for people who want to start a business in Africa. You can read the article here.
