Nigeria’s first indigenous university laptop assembly complex has been inaugurated at the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) campus.
The complex was launched during the university’s recent Founders’ Day by the trio of Sultan of Sokoto, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and his Delta State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.
We delivered this project under a management arrangement with Benefitting Our Community (BOC) Innovations Limited, and the assembly plant has the capacity to produce 100,000 laptops a year.
Our CEO, Charles Emembolu, who is also an alumnus of the university, explained that the Lion laptop project would deliver local content in the billion-naira industry by value substitution of components with locally available materials and labour.
The Lion laptops meet the needs of the Nigerian student matching quality with affordable cost and capacity to produce bespoke specification for different school and government initiative across the country.
Speaking at the event, Emembolu confirmed that the complex would employ about 500 people when producing at full capacity.
He also affirmed that the complex would offer an on-campus manufacturing and learning environment for the university community, students and researchers.
The ultra-modern complex will serve as an avenue to empower the youth with much needed applied technology skills to take leadership role in Nigeria’s economic emancipation.
This project affirms our mission at Crestsage to be the project delivery partner of choice for the Nigeria’s leading service providers, governments and enterprises by helping them create, build and maintain the most innovative, reliable and cost-effective technology driven solutions.
