Exporting ladders and stepladders to Nigeria

Ferral and Five Thousand Miles

Play Video

"We were initially contacted by Five Thousand Miles who explained what their business model was and the means they have to introduce Ferral in African markets, specifically Nigeria in our case. Nigeria is a huge market. We visited both the formal and the informal markets and, in our case, our deals were all made in the informal market. We currently have two clients, we have repeated orders for one of them and here we are with Five Thousand Miles trying to enter into new markets."

Luís Silva, General Manager of Ferral

Founded in 1981, Ferral is a Portuguese company, leader in production and exportation of aluminium ladders and stepladders.

Constantly evolving for more than three decades, the company has professionalized itself in its field of activity, and it currently has 6 modern production lines which comprise a covered area of 16000 m2.
