Luanda, Angola, 20 Oct – Brazilian company Cláudio Vogel, a ceramic roof tile manufacturer, plans to set up a factory in Angola, and is currently carrying out an economic feasibility study, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

The company, which ahs been operating in the Angolan market for four years, manufactures roof tiles in Brazil and later sells and distributes them in Angola via the Bejoma company.

If the factory is built, Cláudio Vogel will reduce its costs of export and transport, according to its sales director, as shipping between Brazil and Angola costs over US$700,000 every year.

The company is taking part in teh Luanda International Fair (Filda) for the third time and exhibited tiles of various colours at the sixth edition of the Constrói Angola fair.

As well as enamelled tiles, the company also exhibited decorated paving tiles for outside use as well as for swimming pools, garages and gardens. (macauhub)
