Chinese ENGO Holdings opens phone assembly plant in Uganda

(Ecofin Agency) - Chinese electronics company ENGO Holdings launched today its computer and mobile phone assembly and manufacturing plant in Uganda. The inauguration ceremony was headed by the country’s president Yoweri Museveni.

The new factory, located in the Namanve Industrial Park in Wakiso District, Uganda, is the result of a memorandum of understanding signed between ENGO Holdings, the National Information Technology Authority - Uganda (NITA-U) and the Uganda Investment Authority (UIA).

Construction of this factory began on July 4, 2019.
James Saaka, Executive Director of the NITA-U, said: “We have now moved to develop standards to guide the manufacture of electronics, ICT equipment including computers and related products. It is a great progress that we are moving Uganda into this ICT equipment manufacturing space but we must move in tandem with the rest of the world in terms of standards and quality in order to be competitive.”

According to Ares Chow Yu Qing, the executive director of ENGO Holdings Limited, the plant would start its operations with 100,000 gadgets per month. “For Computers, the target is One Million a year – depending on demands,” he said. The devices will be marketed under the brand name Simi Mobile.
