Leading health supplements giant, Edmark group of companies, yesterday inaugurated its completed state of the art international Edmark centre, ‘D’Podium’ in Lagos with pomp and fanfare.
Besides, the company has started multibillion naira investments into real estate business in Nigeria as it announced that an estate project is currently under construction in Lekki, Eti Osa Local Government Area of the state.
In his keynote address at the opening ceremony, the Chairman/Founder, Edmark Group, Sam Low, expressed his happiness over the feats his organisation had achieved within nine years of operations in Nigeria upon the initial hurdles encountered.
He observed that “I am very happy to be in Nigeria to commission this multi-billion naira edifice,” saying “Some years ago after making up my mind to invest in Nigeria, we were faced with some challenges, but we were not deterred, we re-planned and re- strategised, and for this I want to say, I am grateful to my team who believed in our dream”.
“Though our operation started in Ghana as a result of the initial challenges we faced when we attempted to set up our businesses in Nigeria; however, a year later, we moved into Nigeria after crossing the hurdles with the regulatory authorities, and to cut the long story short; today we have eleven branches all over the major cities of the nation of Nigeria including Lagos and Abuja, where we have built up with employees from across the globe.
“Ours is a company committed to people’s well-being. We want citizens of Africa to live well and that is why our healthy supplement products help to tackle obesity and reduces the spread of cancer,” Low said amidst cheers from the audience.
The Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, represented by his Personal Assistant, Bolaji Are, assured Edmark Group of improved business climate in Nigeria, saying the Lagos State government will continue to do the needful for businesses and foreign investors to thrive.
Other dignitaries at the event include the Philippines Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms. Shirley Vicario, and her Husband, Pascario Vicario; Malaysian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mohd Yunus Bin Ibrahim; and Kano-born Nigerian business mogul, Hassan Dantata.
