AGC made it to top 10 in MEA – We are into the big league

This July, Afriglobal has made a dramatic entry into the big boys’ club, with a ratification from the best of referees – the prestigious ICIS Chemical Business magazine, perhaps the most widely read periodical in the chemicals space. ICIS ranks us in the top 10 in Middle East – Africa (MEA) region and 108th globally. This is the second time in as many years that this group has featured in the leaders’ list. It was already among the 6 ‘Global Growth’ companies identified by the World Economic Forum in Africa.

The ICIS Chemical Business listing also proves that many of the biggest players in the chemicals field find Africa challenging, even though they have bigger operations in other regions. It highlights the unique strengths this group has accumulated with its Africa focus. Local knowledge, customer intimacy and trust has been built over decades of working with African industry. Our values have resonated with our business partners and will continue to strengthen us as we embark on a high growth trajectory.

Knowing that we have just begun our pan-Africa journey, and already seeing success in exciting new markets, it is easy to understand the sense of excitement ICIS accorded Afriglobal in its July issue. 

We have firmly set our sights on a top 5 standing in 2 years’ time and top of table position in 5. Our time has come.

“The World Economic Forum is proud to recognise these 16 champions that are at the forefront of driving responsible economic growth, job creation and entrepreneurism in Africa. We look forward to the active and dynamic role they will play at our meeting in Abuja, working with the region’s leaders to foster inclusive, sustainable growth in the region,” said David Aikman, managing director/head of New Champions, at the WEF.

Together with the Social Entrepreneurs, Technology Pioneers, Young Global Leaders, Global Shapers and Young Scientists, the GGCs make up the New Champions, a larger WEF community of pioneers, disruptors and innovators.
