What products will you be showcasing at the event?

Built-in Kitchen Appliances (Made in Italy)
​Fitted Kitchen & Wooden Doors

What value do these products bring to the region’s construction industry?

These products are of good quality standard, durable, with safety measures, and aesthetics at affordable prices. In fact, the assembling of the "made in Italy" components is carried out in Nigeria, under the strict supervision of our Italian partners.  

Can you share your outlook on the local construction industry?

There is greater investment opportunity in the housing sector due to the deficit in housing provision. However, more focus should be on provision of more affordable housing for the mid market.

Are there challenges you are currently facing?

Some of the challenges include the influx of inferior quality products into Nigerian markets, and the mindset of Nigerian middle class towards the purchasing of inferior products rather than spending a little more for better quality that is durable. This can be blamed on the nation’s economy.

What are the latest solutions to overcome these?

From our end, partnering with Fabita Srl (Italy) to bring in Built–in Kitchen Appliances manufactured in Italy with the Italian technology & standard at more affordable prices. This will bring into our nation, safe and durable products giving value to our customers.
We also aim at creating more awareness about the harm in purchase of inferior products. Purchasers of such products spend more money in the long run due to the cost of replacement within a short time.  

Is there something you are really looking forward to in the pipeline?

Our futuristic plan is to have an assembling line for more built–in kitchen appliances and hence creating job opportunities for our populace.
