Success Story: Bio Tech Company

The Client
Our client is a global biotechnology company focused on researching, developing and producing industrial enzymes, microorganisms, and biopharmaceutical ingredients. With headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, the company has expanded its operations through acquisitions in several countries worldwide, including China, India, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada. ​
The Need
Our client’s market entry plan into Nigeria was to commence operations with a few capable business development officers focusing on the beverage and detergent industries. ​To fulfill its long-term ambition of becoming the leading enzymes and biopharmaceutical ingredients provider for Nigeria’s beverage and detergent industries, it was essential to engage capable talent while carefully observing all local labour and statutory regulations.
What We Did
Since our client was not registered to operate in Nigeria, we sourced, hired, equipped, managed and provided conducive workspaces for the business’s development team. ​ In addition to the provided HR services, we supported their business expansion initiative with our other market entry solutions, including; payroll management, accounting services, local purchase financing, vendor management, and work visa services for their expats.
Outsourcing to Workforce Africa significantly reduced our client’s business uncertainty, risk, time to market and cost of setting up operations in Nigeria. We also helped shorten their learning curve by leveraging our local market knowledge, resources, and network. ​ Our client has gained access to the largest retail market in Africa by partnering with us.
