ALE Heavylift, Staffordshire-based global solution provider in heavy transport and lifting, has opened a new office in Nigeria, aiming to deliver its strategic heavy-lift services to a wide range of sectors in the country
Describing Nigeria as ‘one of the leading economies’ in the continent, the new office will be focused on business development for oil and gas, petrochemical, offshore, power generation and shipyards projects taking place within the country and West Africa.
ALE already has two established offices in South Africa and a sales presence in Ethiopia and Egypt. The new expansion in Nigeria is in line with the company’s drive to deepen its footprint across the continent.
The Nigeria branch will hold commercial, operations and engineering teams to deliver efficient relationships with the potential to develop a fully functioning office to carry out full project execution.
Commenting on the expanding the heavy lifting services in Nigeria, Adrian Jordaan, general manager of ALE in Nigeria, said, “We have established an extensive reputation for our heavy lifting capabilities within the oil and gas industry all over the globe. As part of our concerted drive and strategy, we made the decision to expand our business opportunities within this market and position ourselves within closer reach to local clients in West Africa.”
ALE focuses on bringing engineering and service excellence to Nigeria’s heavy lifting industries, in compliance with ISO 9001 and 14001, as well as OHSAS18001.
