African expansion for TE Connectivity

TE Connectivity has opened offices in Lagos, Nigeria and Nairobi, Kenya for its broadband business in east and west Africa. This new office allows the company to be closer and more responsive to customer requirements in the emerging African markets.

The new office will be led by Chuks Ofor, former general manager and executive director for east Africa at Vodacom Business, a Vodafone company. Ofor brings with him a background in engineering and more than 10 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry.  

'I am very pleased to be part of this great company,' said Ofor. 'TE Connectivity’s innovative product portfolio and their long history and worldwide expertise makes them one of the major players in the broadband industry.

'Infrastructure development in Africa is a key requirement for its social and economic growth and TE is committed to supporting this growth. I know TE Connectivity can bring great solutions to our region in the telecom networks, wireless, data center and enterprise industry.'
