Did you know?
Explored by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonized by Portugal in 1505, Mozambique had over four centuries of Portuguese rule. This ended in 1975, when the African country gained independence and became the People's Republic of Mozambique. In 1994, it held its first multiparty elections.
Mozambique is endowed with rich and extensive natural resources. Its economy is based largely on agriculture, but industry, chemical manufacturing, aluminium and petroleum production is growing. The country has a tropical climate with two seasons, a wet season from October to March and a dry season from April to September.
Sapa is present in Maputo with a sales office for the aluminium systems brand Sapa Building System.
Meet one our managers:
Leonel Barreto is the sales manager in Maputo, where the brand office for Sapa Building System is located.
We believe our strengths in Mozambique are:
Our strength in Mozambique lies in having a local warehouse, a skilled sales team and an adapted product on offer, supporting not only the daily and local needs but also supporting longer-term local project needs. Foreign construction companies and architects are increasingly exporting business to Mozambique, and for these companies, it is relevant to have local support within the country.
A project we are proud of:
Sapa delivered branded aluminium building systems for Vodacom’s Mozambican head office in Maputo. Designed by EMED Arquitectura Hospitalar, the building is characterized by its modern, vertical and rhythmic architecture.
