AfriOne Ltd, a technology-driven enterprise, while unveiling its manufacturing and assembly plant at Ilupeju Industrial Scheme, Lagos State for ‘Made in Nigeria’ phones and other technological devices, disclosed plans to engage indigenous app developers in efforts to grow local businesses.
Mr Sahir Berry, chief executive officer of AfriOne, said that the plant was a technological breakthrough and precedent for the company and for Nigeria, as its phone will come with automatically installed mobile banking and financial technology (FinTech) applications like Now mobile money app.
He stated that the inauguration of the company’s state of the art facility spread out over 20,000 square feet including Research and Development (R&D) and testing laboratories served as a pioneer in the manufacture and assembly of high-end communication technology in the African space. The facility, he said will be able to produce 300,000 products in a month on its four production lines, adding that the company’s brands of Smartphone would soon be unveiled into the Nigerian market.
“AfriOne champions corporate socio-economic development, while wholly supporting the”Made in Nigeria” mantra. “The company models products that utilise cutting-edge technology reflect a modern, sleek design and integrate the latest and arguably necessary financial technology such as mobile health, mobile education and mobile banking.
“This is all with the goal of facilitating connectivity among Nigerians and the rest of the world,” Berry stressed. Mr Hemang Kapur, co-founder of AfriOne, said that the products of the company were proudly and smartly crafted in Nigeria by Nigerians and to serve Africa’s largest socioeconomic power player with integrity. According to him, the company was hosting cutting-edge technology, stylish design, affordable price points and particularly, an inherent commitment to financial integration. He added that the financial integration was through the automatically installed mobile banking and financial technology, through the NowNow application. “AfriOne aims to democratise technology by offering affordable innovations through our product offerings and removing barriers for large scale adoption of advanced technologies in Nigeria, hence our motto AfriOne – one for everyone,” he said.
