Zinox Acquires Plant to Assemble Devices For Other OEMs.

Zinox Technologies Ltd is no stranger to the Nigerian tech scene. Shortly after acquiring Konga, the tech company is planning on expanding its hardware assembly and production capacity. To this end, they’ve acquired a 129,166.925 square feet warehouse. For a bit of throwback, the company launched its first assembly plant in 2013, they also rolled out a trio of digital hubs in 2016:

This new plant located in Ogba, Ikeja would be used to assemble the products and devices of other multinational Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). I tried to find out the names of these other OEMs, but came up short. However, according to the Head, Corporate Communications of Zinox, Gideon Ayogu,
We have gained trust with global tech giants such as Microsoft Corporation, Intel Inc., and many others. All we need is the support of the government and people of Nigeria.
Not sure if these OEMs mentioned would be included, but that aside, the company is also considering the deployment of robotics in handling the certification processes in the new assembly plant.

In the words of Mr. Ayogu:
The acquisition of the new facility and expansion of Zinox’s assembly/production line is a critical step in the right direction, as it will go a long way to boost our internal capacity and effortless delivery of large-scale rollout projects, all of which require meeting very tight deadlines. We have worked with many big institutions in the recent past such as Shell, Chevron, NCC, INEC etc. for whom we have implemented the rollout of major computer hardware and accessories.
In addition to plans to deploy Robotics, the new assembly plant will function with the latest technology in line with our Future Visions mandate, which involves anticipating and proactively deploying latest technology to meet the demands of the future consumer, he said.
Zinox’s plant is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2018!
