Master Power Technologies, power solution and data centre specialist, has recently opened a branch in Windhoek Namibia, as part of its plan for growth in Africa. The operation officially opened on 1 March 2016
This office will compliment the Master Power branches already successfully operating in Zambia (Kitwe and Lusaka) and Mozambique, with additional African countries earmarked to benefit from a direct Master Power presence.
Master Power’s aim is to expand in Africa so clients have easy access to the quality products and technical expertise Master Power has to offer.
“We identified a requirement for a direct presence in Namibia, making solutions and products easily accessible for the many diverse projects we are undertaking in Namibia”, says Rory Reid, sales and marketing manager at Master Power Technologies.
The Namibian team will be led by branch manager, Wouter Vermeulen. He is a qualified Mechatronic Engineer, a Namibian citizen and will bring 7 years Master Power experience to the position, thus ensuring the Master Power creed and quality standards are maintained.
“I am very excited about heading up a Namibian office as this enables us to better service current and future projects by having a foot on the ground.” Vermeulen says.
“A direct presence will give us the opportunity to increase our market share and we can work closely with our local partners. We have had a very positive reaction to having an office in Namibia.
Being local will provide a better platform to conduct business within a variety of market sectors such as government and parastatal, retail, food and beverage, Telco’s, banks, medical, education, hospitality, not to mention construction and mining” continues Vermeulen.
“Our aim is to implement and utilise our proven expertise here. This will include offering products like generators and power plants, UPSes, rectifiers, batteries, medium and low voltage distribution panels, transformers, modular facilities for various applications, services/maintenance and remote monitoring with our advanced Universal Controller” Vermeulen concludes.
