15 July 2009

Luanda, Angola, 15 July – The managing director of Brazil’s Servicon Hunnebeck, Rildo Salgado said Tuesday in Luanda that contacts were being made in Angola with a view to investing in building a factory in 2020 for equipment to support the construction sector.

Salgado, who was speaking to Angolan news agency Angop at the 26th edition of the Luanda International Fair (Filda), said that he was “very happy with the contacts being made in Angola, as well as the interest people are showing in the company’s products due to their high quality and durability.”

Servicon Hunnebeck manufactures moulds and scaffolding and has been exporting its products to Angola for the last two years, via Brazilian companies Odebrecht and ABH, which operate in Angola’s construction market.

Speaking about the reasons for taking part in Filda, Salgado said that, as well as presenting the company’s products, the company planned to increase its turnover in Angola, which in 2008 totalled US$10 million.

Servicon Hunnebeck, which is headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, exports its products to the United States, Chile, Australia, New Zealand and Spain as well as Angola. (macauhub)
