Energy management giant, Schneider Electric, has signed up a new distributor, Okelco Global Resources for its products in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The distributor is expected to cater for the distribution of Schneider Electric’s products in the South-South and South-Eastern parts of the country.
In a chat with pressmen Tuesday this week, the Marketing Communications Manager of Schneider Electric, Viviane Mike-Eze said that the inauguration of the distributor, which was witnessed by representatives of Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) among others, will ensure easy access to the company’s products in the zone, including for oil and gas companies.
She added that Okelco’s activity goes beyond distributorship and into panel building and assembly. According to her, the increased availability of Schneider Electric products and solutions would positively impact the different segments of application, namely buildings/real estate, industry, infrastructure, data center and oil and gas.
With a new distributor located in Nigeria’s oil and gas hub, residents in Port Harcourt and neighbouring cities will have faster access to Schneider Electric products. Resellers in this region will enjoy proximity to a state-of-the-art wholesale facility.
“This is also a deliberate attempt to combat fakes and imitations as our distributor shall ensure prompt supply for every demand of original product range from Schneider Electric and its partners”, she quipped.
