Main Activities

1. IMPORT

The  company imports products form Europe, mainly from Germany and Italy on CAD basis. L/C was rarely utilized in our twelve years business operations, with companies either new to our relationship or their financial system do not allow them to accept other terms of payment except L/C.

The major principals and suppliers are:

  • COVIND-ITALY
  • CHINETTTI s.r.l- ITALY

2. STOCK

The company is trying to keep an optimal stock level as to help satisfy the market on one side and minimize the capital tie up on the other end which is a common problem for organizations engaged in this sector.

3. MARKETING

The marketing mechanism applied by the company is whole sales, which gives the chance for the company to focus on a limited number of customers but with high sales turnover.  Since the application of this strategy three years ago, the sales volume showed a dramatic increase which in effect leads to higher profit for the company.

4. TENDER BUSINESS

The company is taking part in major tenders floated by big buyers such as Ethiopian Air ports enterprise, Tendaho Sugar Factory, Gulele soap factory, etc. for the supply of Fire fighting truck and equipments, lubricants and raw materials respectively.
