A new mobile phone firm, InJoo, is set to build a phone assembling and manufacturing factory in the country. It said this would help promote technology transfer and open a new vista of employment and other opportunities for youths, adding that with a huge population of energetic young men/women, the country remains strategic for its business.
Its President, Jack InJoo, who spoke during the launch of the Injoo Max 3 phablet in Lagos, said the importance of Nigeria to the firm’s business underscored the first global launch of the new device in the country. He said: “Setting up a factory in Nigeria is part of our plan because I believe in not only building after-service centres but manufacturing and assembling plants. It is necessary as a mark of our commitment to the market and the people. By so doing, we will be complementing the Federal Government’s efforts in job creation and support to the youths.
“We want to continue to be alive in Nigeria, extend our reach to all parts of the country. I will be very happy if in the next five years, I can get 20 per cent of market share in smart phones in the country.” Read more
