Technical service provider in West Africa

Vision & services

BIC Electric in West Africa – our journey begins

We believe that we can – and should – contribute to a better life of West African professionals. Our goal is to create sustainable jobs, transfer our technical skills and company values to Africa, and make BIC employees in Africa appreciated professionals.

To achieve that, we are setting our first footprints in Africa: we have opened a BIC office in Ghana and we are starting our long-term educational plan for BIC specialists – the first African technicians already joined us, completed a wide range of trainings and started to work on the projects together with BIC technicians! This should enable BIC Electric West Africa us to handle first projects already this year. Apart from that, we have also started cooperation with Ghana Greentech Academy.

Our vision is fully supported by the Royal Danish Embassy, Consulate of Denmark, and Danish State.

 

Support for the project

The project touches upon some very important issues in Ghana and West Africa, namely job creation, knowledge transfer and creating economic growth but also at the same time exploring the many opportunities that lies in the Sub-Saharan Africa. With the dedication that BIC has shown I’m confident that BIC will succeed.

The plan to create sustainable high competence jobs for West African professionals is very ambitious but I’m sure BIC will succeed. There have been made many preparations so far, incl. market studies, recruitment process preparations, establishment of the business operation hub in Ghana, etc. BIC is on a good track and we fully support this fantastic project.

Exchange programme

  • In January 2019, the technical equipment donated by BIC landed in Africa. It is a support for Ghana Greentech Academy – a vocational technical school, located near the rocky outcrops of the Mim region in Ghana. After a successful Academy reopening (read more here), the students were informed about setting up of BIC’s exchange program for the top-performing graduates, who will have the opportunity to train their skills in Europe (Denmark & Poland) later this year.

Jonathan Aihoon joined BIC Electric in April as part of our educational program for talented technicians from Ghana and Nigeria.

In October he joined our Key Account and Sales & Marketing departments. This transition is aimed at developing our African team and getting closer to African market and the sale’s culture there.
