“West Africa, and Nigeria in particular, is a very dynamic market,” Samir Khoudja, BOBST’s managing director for the Middle East and Africa, said. “By opening an office in Lagos, the city with the biggest population in the most populous country in Africa, we will be closer to our customers and able to provide them with an even higher standard of service. Establishing this presence in Lagos is a significant step for BOBST and we expect that it will lead to further expansion in the region.”
BOBST currently has a sales and service center in Tunis, Tunisia, with overall responsibility for BOBST activities in Africa and the Middle East. The new BOBST office in Lagos will cover Nigeria and the wider West Africa region, providing pre-sales assistance and technical support for BOBST sheetfed and web-fed customers.
