LARGO, FL, Nov. 15, 2005 -- Chemilizer executives are optimistic about opening a potential new international market in Nigeria, Africa, following the hosting of a five-day intensive training session in which members of Klear Conscience Ventures Ltd., of Nigeria, participated at the firm's headquarters located in Largo, Fla.
"Nigeria is a progressive country moving to solve their social and economic challenges," said Chemilizer president Frank Daniels, who is optimistic about its market potential and KCV's plans to serve the whole African market.
The initial focus will be on water treatment, but Daniels said the Nigerian visitors were excited to learn of the Chemilizer injectors' suitability for horticultural and animal health applications in their country.
Daniels said the agricultural potential in the country is barely tapped, despite ever increasing demand from its estimated 127-million inhabitants and strong export market. Agriculture remains a dominant employer of labor but investment to date has not kept pace. "That's changing," says Daniels, "and our injectors are ideal for fertigation of their river basins."
A recent trade agreement to produce and export three billion tons of cassava (tapioca) to China is an example of the country's ability to generate new avenues of international trade. Additionally, this fertilization, agricultural and horticultural marketing activities ripple through the economy and help develop food processing and preservation industries.
Livestock also poses great potential for development, says Daniels. Grazing lands within the country are abundant with facilities for livestock production, fish farming, poultry and swine which are growing rapidly.
Nigeria's pool of highly educated and trained manpower is the largest in Africa with skilled manpower at all levels. This creates competitive rates and a major attraction for international investment. The country is strong in oil revenues which account for about 95% of total exports and about 65% of government revenues.
In the training class the Nigerians were provided with hands-on training for the sale and maintenance of Chemilizer's CP33 and HN55 injectors.
Chemilizer Products Inc. (www.chemilizer.com) has produced quality injectors for over three decades for global users in agriculture, animal health and water management applications. Research, manufacturing and administrative activities are conducted in the company's modern 20,000 sq. ft. facility located in Largo, Fla.
