Building computers in Nigeria
Filed under: Africa, TEDGlobal — Ethan @ 8:22 am
Florence Seriki is the CEO of Nigerian computer manufacturer, Omatek. She’s interested in the problem of getting African youth excited about computers, and reminds the audience that you don’t need to be an expert to make strides in the technology industry. She got involved out of need - as a chemical engineer, she was running a set of simulations with old Fortran software. The dismal performance forced her to learn a new mathematical modeling language and become a programmer, simply to complete the task.

Learning this new skill helped turn her into an evangelist for computing in Nigeria. She began running computer trainings for Nigerian businessmen. Noting that executives took classes in golf or squash, she began offering classes in the evenings to executives. Because they trusted her as an insructor, they trusted her as well when she began selling hardware to them. In 1986, her company became a hardware seller as well as a trainer.

As she began selling hardware, she noticed that the components were made by different companies, mostly within China. Around the world, companies were integrating these different pieces into a single system - she asked herself, “Why can’t Africans do this?” Her company began making clones of Compaq machines, importing parts from China and assembling locally.

Her goal was to produce high quality goods, defying the local strategy of pricing at 30% below imported goods to counter a perceived quality problem. This doesn’t work in computing, because you still have to import components. Instead, Omatek attempted to create high value machines from Chinese parts and sold at a price that recovered cost. They hugely benefitted from a government decision to purchase all IT from domestic providers.

Seiki saves her critique for local banks - they need to do a better job of making long term, not short term investments. And they need to encourage SME growth, possibly by investing 10% of their profits into SME loans.

C'est un assembleur comme tous les autres: hp, dell, etc.

Aucun ne fabrique ses propres composantes, qui viennent generalement d'asie (chine, coree, taiwan) et pour les processeurs d'intel ou d'amd.

Meme Apple achete beaucoup de ses composantes chez les autres (la cpu vient d'intel par exemple).

Donc en france par exemple, tous les fabriquant d'ordinateurs sont exactement comme cette societe nigerianne, ils achetent les composantes et les assemblent en france pour en faire un ordinateur.

Salut MOP. Merci pour l'info. Pour ma part je n'ose pas dire que c'est ''le premier et seul fabricant d'ordinateurs en Afrique''. Une telle initiative avait deja existe il y a quques annees au Senegal sans compter les nombreuses ''manufactures'' qui existente en Afrique du Sud. De toutes les facons c'est ue initiative a saluer et qui est certainement appelee a se multiplier.

A titre d'exemple la Zambie vient d'inaugurer sa premiere compagnie de fabrication de telephones cellulaires. L'unite livre chaque mois 1000 telephones de fabrication zambienne.

Zambia opens first ever cell phone manufacturing company

President Rupiah Banda talks to workers at the Mobile Telecommunications mobile telephone assembly plant in Lusaka
A US$10 million mobile phone manufacturing plant, known as M-mobile Telecommunications Zambia limited (M-Tech), has officially opened in Lusaka.

This is the first ever cellular phone manufacturing company to open in Zambia.

President Rupiah Banda officially launched the plant today and said the company would employ over 200 Zambians in various capacities.

President Banda said among the 200 Zambians that would be employed will be engineers, technicians and may others in various technical fields.

He was happy that the company would benefit Zambians through employment creation, technology transfer and human resources development among others.

He stressed that government would continue to create a conducive and competitive environment for the private sector to thrive in various sectors of the economy.

“Keeping Zambia competitive begins with keeping our economy growing. And our economy can only grow when a lot more Zambians invest in the domestic economy,” he said.

President Banda said Zambia was now boasting of home-grown corporations which he said were now among the largest in Africa.

The President said government was determined to continue facilitating actual production of mobile phones, adding that this would greatly help reduce the cost of communication in the country.

He further said this was aimed at adding value to the country’s economic development process, which was a significant step towards the realization of the vision 2030 of transforming Zambia into a middle income country.

He explained that the mobile phone manufacturing investment has come at a time when the country is facing the global financial meltdown that has put pressure on most of economies world wide.

Speaking earlier, M-Tech chairperson, Seedat Mohamed, said the M-Tech cell phone were a fully registered Zambian brand, which would grow to make the country proud.

Mr. Mohamed noted that the technology used in the cell phone manufacturing was of superior standard, adding that it meets all international requirements.

He said the phones have the best reception to all the three net works as they were fine tuned in Zambia.

Mr. Mohamed said the company will be producing about 1,000 phones per day which will cost about K200, 000 (US$36) each.
