Sequel to the promise it made during the introduction of the latest PPR pipes into the market in April 2017, Nigeria’s leading distributor of pipes and related products, Adeem Adex Nigeria limited has empowered over a hundred stakeholders in the building and construction industry with contemporary pipe laying and management technology. This was done in conjunction with its foreign technical partners Dizayn Group of Turkey. The special technical training session took place in Lagos.
Mr. Fatih Guler; Product Manager, Dizayn Group took the captive audience through the latest technology in pipes which is built to last over fifty years with zero tolerance level for leakages. The highly interactive technical session – which lasted over five hours – saw an elated audience eager to know more about the new technology. Unlike PVC pipes, the PPR pipes does not break on contact and it is easy to install with the appropriate equipment.
On his part, Mr. Can Atikoglu – Director Export Market Dizayn Group said the company, which was established in 1987, belongs to Mir Holding in Istanbul/Turkey. He pointed out that their strongest point is innovations and the extra values it adds to pipes and fittings due to its strong R&D (Research and Development) power. “In many companies R&D is just a department within the factory, but with us, we have a separate company for R&D activities comprising of many researchers and academicians who work not only for pipe industry, but also for many industrial areas as well.”
He added that the company is planning to establish factories in Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia in addition to the existing factories they have in Russia and Germany. Arrangement for the establishing of the Nigerian factory is already in top gear with the introduction of the products and the technical session as the first step. Because of its flexibility, the company exports products successfully to all of the continents all over the world with Nigeria and the entire Africa as a huge potential.
Atikoglu stressed that they are not just content with the introduction of their products to the market, but want to ensure that all professionals within the building sector – Architects’, plumbers, contractors, engineers and project management companies – know how to install and manage the pipes and other fittings.
“We arranged this technical seminar with our exclusive agent Adeem Adex Limited because we noticed a very big interest in our products and this successful session has confirmed it. I’d like to thank all of the participants for their attention and interest in our company and in our products. We already have substantial quantities in stock in the ware-house of our agent for huge projects; if necessary we can even effect the shipment directly from Turkey pending the establishment of the Nigerian factory which will cater for the West African sub region.”
Also speaking at the session, Mr. Adediran Adekoya, MD/CEO of Adeem Adex limited said the motivation in going into partnership with Dizayn Group stems from the pains most Nigerians go through from leaking pipes. “When I saw the problem most Nigerian homes have with leaking pipes, I determined in bringing a lasting solution to leakages, health hazards, and also low maintenance of plumbing infrastructure that is the norm in Nigeria. This is one of the motivating factors behind this partnership. With these pipes, customers can be assured of a fifty (50) years guarantee; to me that’s a lifetime.”
He urged Nigerians to believe in these products because Dizayn brings technology and innovation to bear on their products which really makes the brand different, unique, and dependable, and arguably, the best in the market. “We didn’t charge the stakeholders for this training session because we see it as a corporate social responsibility. When we launched our brand in Nigeria in April, it was brought to our notice that installation has been a very big challenge, so we took it upon ourselves to provide periodic training to our stakeholders from time to time in order to ensure that as many people as possible have the proper knowledge of the installation so that every household can enjoy the benefit of using our product,” he added.
It would be recalled that at the April event, different premium products of Dizayn Group like PPR pipes, fittings and RTP pipes produced for waste water, fresh water and infrastructure systems were unveiled to an impressive audience that included building experts, oil and gas professionals and key players in Nigeria’s construction industry.
