The Abidjan office and warehouse facilities began operations in August 2023 under the leadership of Managing Director, Basile Katche, who comes from years of expertise in the Marine Oil & Gas business. In addition to LPG equipment, Cavagna Group West Africa will be responsible for representing and promoting all of the Group’s other lines of business, including technologies for industrial gases, medical gases, and the control and metering of natural gas, as well as, LPG and Natural Gas engineering services.
Rino Cavagna, Executive Vice President of Sales at the Cavagna Group, had this to say:“Africa is very important for our Group, and it is fundamental for us to have a direct local presence in strategic geopolitical and economic areas. This new company, which joins our other company in the southern part of Africa, highlights how our strategy is based on an awareness that Africa is certain to see significant growth in the gas market over the next 20 years. This development will be driven by population growth, urbanization, and the emergence of a middle class with greater economic resources. At the same time, Africa is developing in the global energy landscape, including in terms of environmental stability and protection of natural heritage. In this area, too, we want to do our part, with the awareness and commitment that distinguishes us at an international level”.
