As a developing continent especially in terms of infrastructure, Africa needs to work with a company that has in depth experience in this niche. A company that doesn’t sell machines in isolation but one that treats customers as their partners. A company capable of working as a consultant and help customers to determine the need that they have and support them from the beginning to the end of their project.
At present, Ammann is one of the few OEMs able to provide a complete asphalt solution catering for all market requirements. Units range from highly sophisticated plants and machines to more simplified ‘entry-level’ for Arica, environmentally compliant units that meet all the markets with various governmental specifications.High capital equipment costs and a lack of access to finance are the two main barriers to launching an SME construction business on the African continent, and Ammann make provision for this through market-specific product development.
The company has implemented the Hub concept that provides a holistic approach to covering the African market. Its products are mostly supplied and provided by a network of dealers and agencies. Dealers mostly provide machine products and support and the agencies for the plant products. Ammann also has staff in the region that looks after all the contractor’s needs.
Dubai is the main hub for the AME region having a fully fledged parts and service support having various branches of our dealers and agents all over Africa region to support customers locally. Ammann also have representatives stationed at various countries in Africa to support customers and dealers / agents.
