Aveng Group expanding in Mozambique
London, 15 May (AIM) – The South African Aveng Group has opened an office in Maputo as part of its expansion in Mozambique.

The company is responding to rapid economic growth by constructing a 17 million US dollar factory in Tete province in western Mozambique to produce materials for the country’s huge infrastructure projects. At full production factory will produce 130,000 railway sleepers per year and employ up to a thousand people.

According to the company’s chief executive officer, Roger Jardine, “this is an exciting period in the history of Mozambique, with the relatively high and sustained economic growth promising greater prosperity and opportunity for all Mozambicans”.

Aveng notes that, despite the economic growth, the country’s infrastructure is in poor condition and that the Mozambican government has identified a number of growth corridors where substantial investment is taking place. This is providing opportunities in the development of ports, roads and railway lines.

Aveng has recently been awarded a contract for the Nacala Corridor Project which entails carrying out earthworks, installing drainage and building bridges over a 62.5km section of rail track.

It is also building railway yards in Beira city in Sofala province and Moatize in Tete province, and is supplying concrete sleepers, pipes and culverts to contractors.

These projects will create an estimated 1,200 direct and indirect jobs.
