Spanish company FH Metal interested in investing in Angola’s interior

20 July 2009

Luanda, Angola, 20 July – Spanish company FH Metal plans to sign partnership deals with Angolan state institutions and businesspeople to operate in the interior of the country, the company’s chief executive, Luís Mariano Fernández said Sunday in Luanda.

Speaking to Angolan news agency Angop, the CEO of the company, which specialises in manufacturing containers, offices for worksites, mobile bathrooms, metallic pavilions and pre-fabricated houses, said that the company initially planned to establish itself outside of Luanda, as the interior areas are more likely to need the company’s products.

During the International Luanda Fair (Filda/2009), where FH Metal was an exhibitor, Fernandéz said that some of its products were already available in Angola, via Portuguese companies that operate in the country.

Created 24 years ago, the family-owned company, with headquarters in Pontevedra, Spain, exports its products to countries such as Portugal, France, Brazil, Australia, Morocco and Algeria.

Filda is a business fair which each year, since 1983, brings together Angolan and foreign entrepreneurs to exhibit products and services as well as establishing contacts for business. (macauhub)
