YorPower expand into French-Speaking Africa
19th July 2019
YorPower are currently expanding into French-Speaking African territories, with an increasing number of orders going out to these areas with unreliable power grids and high demand for electricity.
Just last week, YorPower dispatched a total of 10 diesel generators, along with service kits to a distributor in Conakry, Guinea. The 20 ft container consisted, more specifically, of an 80kVA, a 30kVA and a 20kVA Perkins canopied diesel generator, as well as seven 20kVA open sets, all of which were sold with 2000 – hour service kits.
Africa is an immensely important market for our services and products and for this reason, YorPower design products specifically adapted to suit the African climate and environment. We are globally recognised for the reliability and lasting performance of our generators and associated equipment, as well as for our expert level of customer service. For these reasons, many customers in Africa specifically request YorPower- designed and built generators. Our engineering pedigree and the continual investment in research and development means we stay ahead of many of the larger manufacturers, particularly when it comes to adopting smarter, new technology.
This particular distributor approached YorPower thanks to our superior product and global reach. Having sold local, Chinese and other European brands in the past, the client concluded that YorPower product would sell and perform better for their customers who are already familiar with the YorPower brand. Our company has exported gensets to Africa for well over twenty years, initially to Nigeria and Kenya. We now have physical bases in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Sudan and Libya where our products can be purchased. We are currently expanding into new territories with YorPower dealerships launching soon in 3 different African countries. There are a number of competitive brands of generator out there on the market however, rather than focusing on competing with one specific brand, YorPower choose to fill the gaps in the market. We are an all-encompassing service from design and build to delivery, installation and support and we custom build generator sets that last a lifetime with very minimal maintenance necessary.
