In his words, the Filipino said “I am very happy to be in Nigeria to commission this multi billion naira edifice. Some years ago, I heard a voice in me, “Sam stop going to America to expand your business and go to Africa” but asked which part of Africa because at that time Africa was the last place I thought of investing.

“But finally, I found out from my map that Nigeria was in the centre of Africa and ironically was the biggest and the darkest part to invest at the time. After making up my mind to invest in Nigeria, we were faced with some challenges but we were not deterred, we learned and re- strategized and for this I want to say, I am grateful to my team who believed in our dream.

 

“Though our operation started in Ghana as a result of the initial challenges we faced when we attempted to set up our businesses in Nigeria; however, after a year, we moved into Nigeria after crossing the hurdles with the regulatory authorities and to cut the long story short; today we have eleven branches all over major the cities of the nation of Nigeria including Lagos and Abuja, where we have built up capacity and we are still going to establish more.

“With this centre which is humanitarian in approach, I strongly believe, this will enhance more businesses, enhance opportunities, change the face of business and help boost the economy of Nigeria and other African countries” he said.

Speaking on the philosophy of his firm, Low said “Edmark International is a multinational firm in the healthy and life style industry that is committed to peoples’ wellbeing; we want citizens of Africa to live well and that is why our healthy supplement products help to tackle obesity. This is just the beginning and I want to thank the architect and other wonderful people who helped make this project come to reality. I am excited that we can do this”

In his opening remarks, the company’s General Manager in Nigeria, Mr. Maurice Etim stated that Edmark International came into Nigeria at a very trying period when recession was at its peak in the country and of course in Africa, but despite the economic challenges at the time that made so many investors to run away from Nigeria, Mr. Sam Low did not run away, rather, he invested heavily in Nigeria.

“Today, Edmark International is not only a success in Nigeria but a huge success in West Africa. Edmark International has helped combat obesity in Nigeria as well as empowered many Nigerians and other African citizens.

“I must also say that the success would not have been possible without our hardworking team and distributors. Today, we can see that Edmark International is a big success in Nigeria and the evidence is why we are in this multi billion naira state of the art edifice in the heart of Lagos” Etim said.
