Julius Berger’s subsidiary, PrimeTech Design and Engineering Nigeria Limited, last weekend in Abuja had a ceremony to honour its long-serving staff. The ceremony, which was dual in nature, coincided with the commissioning of Primetech’s newly completed office extension building at its state-of-the-art business complex in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
The Chairman of Primetech and Board member of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, Hon. Engr. Jafaru Damulak was on hand to kick off events at the ceremony. Engr. Damulak proudly traced the history of Primetech and commended its management for having committedly, productively grown the company’s business from merely being a service unit to Julius Berger’s needs to its current status of providing high value and reliable service to networth third party clients.
The Primetech Chairman enjoined the management and staff of Primetech to be positive and remain committed to the future growth of the company’s business. Mr Christian Hausemann, the Financial Director of Primetech’s parent company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, represented Julius Berger’s executive management and led a delegation from head office to the well-attended event, which held at the iconic Primetech business complex located at Idu Industrial Area FCT Abuja.
On his part, the General Manager of PrimeTech, Christian Mössmer, thanked the long-serving personnel of the company for their productive loyalty and faithful commitment to the founding vision of Primetech. He took an excursion into PrimeTech’s historical evolvement over the years as the design and engineering subsidiary of the leading quality and reliable Julius Berger brand. He spoke about the challenges the company had to deal with, but more proudly of how PrimeTech over the years overcame those challenges to currently emerge as Nigeria’s preferred and most dependable design and engineering business partner.
PrimeTech, said Christian Mössmer, started out with a “…vision is to be the design and engineering partner of choice in Nigeria by securing clients’ success through excellence and value”. To give real time effect to its bold vision, Christian Mössmer said, “PrimeTech provides reliable, innovative and efficient solutions for the construction of buildings, industries, civil structures, roads and infrastructure”, adding that “…as part of the Julius Berger Group’s value chain, PrimeTech’s values reflect a high emphasis on the delivery of superior quality services to the full satisfaction of clients.”
