Aiming to be a truly GLOCAL organization, with a global presence while acting locally at a micro level, in order to bring value to the customers that we serve, we do believe that it is around our values and purpose that we all come together.

Our purpose and belief lie:

  • In the pursuit of excellence in each of our core competency areas,
  • In the enhancement of people’s life, together with the well-being of their respective communities,
  • In the innate abilities of Africa to strengthen its development, while ensuring and sustaining its own development programs.
  • “BELIEF & PURPOSE keep inspiring us, but VALUES drive us all the way”

Our values are inherent to:

  • Passion for a well done work,
  • Commitment towards delivering our promises while meeting our customers’ core expectations,
  • Loyalty to the people and communities that we serve,
  • Strong ethics in the way that we conduct business,
  • Trust in our capabilities and in the future of the economies that we operate in,
  • Enhancement of the well-being of the people and communities that we serve.

These values and principles intrinsically guide us as to how we conduct business on an every day basis. As such, we work hard to manage our international operations with care for the health, safety and prosperity of our employees, customers, communities and the environment.

What makes us different ?

  • We leverage on the energy, ideas & success that our diversity brings to the countries, industries and global community that we serve.

Our value proposition

“Because we work in close partnership with our customers, we have extraordinary insight into the various challenges that they face. We bring unlimited resourcefulness to the challenge of limited resources – and deliver positive economic, social and environmental outcomes.”

Our Group employs over 1,000 employees throughout the African and Asian continents. We have a direct presence through wholly-owned subsidiaries in 11 territories as follows:

  • China
  • Mauritius
  • Seychelles
  • Comoros islands
  • New Caledonia
  • South Africa
  • Hong Kong
  • Réunion Island

We also have an indirect coverage through representations in the folllowing 14 African countries:

  • Uganda
  • South Sudan

Our success is intrinsically linked to how our organisation strives to meet the needs and requirements of our customers and partners, mainly around Asia and Africa. More than a strategy, our international presence reflects a philosophy – knowing how to fit in with local customs and characteristics.

Our long-term strategy takes its lead from fundamental global trends. Its core elements, including a strong international presence through a focused diversification programme, thus remained in place in spite of the recent global financial crisis. Indeed, the crisis proved us right in sticking to these specific objectives.

• Internationalization

We shall continue to press ahead with expanding our business worldwide, thereby further strengthening our international presence.

• Diversification

We shall continue to improve the balance in our sales sector/ segment and operating structures to take full advantage of opportunities for growth in selected strategic operating clusters such as Health and Life Sciences Services, Petroleum Services and Sugar Technology. At the same time, we project to keep focusing on the achievement of above-average growth rates in the Commodity and Trading clusters, while maintaining the momentum in Building Technology and Industrial Technology.

“More than a strategy, our international presence reflects a philosophy...”

Our International operations currently account for 31% of our Group’s global economic output. Our objective is to increase this percentage to 60% within the next 3 years. Furthermore, we plan to set up new entities in Central and Western Africa. Such emerging markets will provide new growth impetus for the business clusters of our organisation. Between now and 2020, we foresee an annual average growth of 20% in the African/Asian emerging markets.

Our organisation already benefits from a significant presence in the international markets and we have every reason to continue our strategy of focused diversification. This means that we shall make further acquisitions, provided that they match our core competencies.
