BOTSWANA'S CLIMATE CONTROL LAUNCHES IN ZAMBIA

Posted by David Ngenda on Tue 14 June, 2016

Climate Control, one of Botswana's leading Mechanical and air conditioning contractors, last friday launched its Zambian unit at the Mulungushi International Conference Center (MICC).

Ben Bwalya, Climate Control Zambia Managing Director described the opening of the Zambian chapter as a key step in the company's plan to gradually spread its footprint across the entire Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

He said the Company's decision to enter the Zambian market was mainly fuelled by the rising demand for its services from both the Zambian government and the private sector.

The 12 year old company recently partnered with Samsung Electronics to rehabilitate and upgrade the ventilation, heating and air conditioning systems at MICC as the facility prepared to host the African Development Bank (AfDB) annual general meeting.

“This launch is the first step for us to re-introduce ourselves on the Zambian market, we still have a lot to do to prove our worth,” said Bwalya during the launch.

"The company has completed a lot of projects related to refrigeration, air conditioning, fire suppression systems, fire sprinkler systems and pumping stations. Twelve years in an information age and in an industry that is constantly evolving to keep up with technological advancements, is an achievement we can be proud of,” he said.

Bwalya said Climate Control was able to offer the latest technology in air conditioning design because it is Samsung's authorised distributer for the Zambian Market. He expressed gratitude to the electronics giant for the 'tremendous' technical support it has continued to give Climate Control.

He added that "Through quality installation, Climate Control has created a major reference site for Samsung Digital Air Solutions in Sub Saharan Africa and a first for Botswana and Zambia. Climate Control is ready to assist in bridging the gap between the academic world and the construction industry by offering practical experience through internship programmes to fresh graduates on live sites."

"Climate Control Zambia could not have come at a better time than now when Zambia has placed infrastructure development as one of the key priorities in turning around the economy," remarked Charles Sipanje, Works and Supply permanent secretary at the same event.

He encouraged Climate Control to play their part in creating employment in Zambia by using local materials and labour in their projects.

Climate Control currently employs 160 people in Botswana and Zambia and is duly registered with the National Construction Council (NCC) in Grade 1.
