What products will you be showcasing at the event?

We will be showcasing door hardware including: Door handles, lock body, lock cylinder, hinges, panic exit, door closer, door accessories and furniture handles.

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

Akada supply a complete line of top quality door hardware and door accessories with full experience for more than 10 years. Now we have a series of UL and fire rated products for the projects as well.

​Why is it important for you to do business in the region?

While our main market is in the Middle East, especially in Saudi Arabia where we have an excellent reputation, we hope to expand our business to the African countries. Nigeria is considered as the largest African economy and we think starting from there is the perfect step.

What is unique about the Nigerian industry compared to other regions?

The Nigerian construction industry outlook is optimistic. Large scale construction among private individuals is still on the rise. The fact that the country is a developing one, with emphasis on infrastructural development, will continue to give the desired pull in the industry.
Although the industry growth is somewhat dependent on the government expenditure, the huge population will still continue to boost average growth in the private estate development section of the industry.

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

We are really looking forward to an increase in the government infrastructure expenditure and a stable foreign exchange rate. Currently, there seems to be huge pressure on the Naira.

How will it benefit customers to see you at the event?

Customers will be able to see the look and feel of Akada brands and the event will give them the opportunity to interact with our executive. Ultimately, customers will gain insight into why Akada is one the best brands in the world.
