GE in Sub-Saharan Africa
GE first started operating in Sub-Saharan Africa over 100 years ago. However in 2011, we decided to renew our focus to meet Africa’s current and future needs. Our footprint in sub-Saharan Africa now consists of over 2600 employees, revenues of about $3.3 billion dollars (2015) and operations in 33 countries. GE’s main operations in SSA are in Nigeria, South Africa, Angola, Ghana, Mozambique and Kenya where its SSA Headquarters is located.
A key partner in supporting SSA’s socio-economic growth, GE operates in the Oil & gas, power, transportation, healthcare, renewables, energy connections and aviation sectors.
Partnership with Governments and local companies form a very important part of GE’s growth in SSA. We have signed MOUs with the Governments of several countries such as Nigeria, Kenya, Angola and Ghana to develop infrastructure projects, including sustainable energy solutions, providing efficient and reliable transportation as well as improving access to quality healthcare. These MOUs involve significant investments in creating jobs and human capital development.
