Uganda is one of the countries in East African region with poor and dirty roads. Most of these are characterized by pot holes and are stationed in Kampala, the capital of Uganda.
During the launch of the South African based AMMANN construction company and AFRIMECH launch at silver spring hotel Bugolobi, Ugandans get afford to smile.
With a motto “Productivity partnership for life time” AMMANN has geared its activities to the needs and requirements of its clients and customers around the globe. “The plants and machines that they have and are planning to export to Uganda, shall be proved day by day and the operating conditions available whether tough or not”, AFRIMECH says.
In his speech, the Dutch ambassador said that its always sad to see farmers transport the crops to the market and have them reach in poor quality due to poor road conditions.
Allan Senabulya, the marketing manager of AFRIMECH, says that their main target in pulling this deal to Uganda,was based on the companies’ values, full service and availability of spare parts.
Engineer Samson Baginza, representing the Minister for works launched the partnership and thanked AMMANN for the good work they are doing towards boosting road transport network in Uganda. He added that the government is focusing on construction of new roads like kampala to Jinja, Kampala to Entebbe, Kampala to Mpigi and many more
He encouraged local Ugandan construction companies to try AMMANN equipments and pledged the ministry to continue with the support that AMMANN needed.
