New office openings in Ghana and Algeria
ALE has expanded its business operations in Africa and opened new offices in Algeria and Ghana.
The new sales office, based in the capital city of Accra, includes a depot with a fleet of heavy transport modular trailers and prime movers to support the local operations.
ALE has led a new joint venture in Ghana with local contractor Jacob Lawren Ltd to work together on the first transportation project with Elecnor, where they have been contracted to provide the transportation and installation scope of heavy equipment from the Port of Tema to Kintampo substation.
“The new partnership is the result of ALE’s response to the increasing demand for heavy road haulage that the country is experiencing,” explained Jose Luis Salamanca Garcia, Sales Manager for ALE.
“We are committed to providing our engineering and operational expertise to our clients in Ghana. With a dedicated business development manager, local partners and transport equipment, we can focus on providing reliable transport and installation services to the local power generation market and growing sectors, as well as optimising any potential future opportunities in the country.”
ALE’s Spain branch, who are commercially responsible for the Mediterranean and North Africa regions within the ALE group, recently set up commercial offices in Egypt and Algeria to cover the North Africa region. The additional office in Ghana confirms the strong expansion that ALE is carrying out in North and West Africa.
With two established offices in South Africa and a sales presence in Algeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Nigeria and Ghana, ALE now has seven branches in Africa and it is an indication of the company’s drive to expand its footprint across the continent.
