(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian public work department awarded a XAF157 billion deal to Belgium’s DEM Group last February 1st. Under the agreement, DEM will supply equipment to the National Park of Civil Engineering Equipment (Matgénie), which was formerly dedicated to renting machines to construction companies but now a fully-fledged construction company following a reform in 2015.

The deal covers more than 600 machines and vehicles and the creation of four training centers for the driving of these machines, as well as Matgénie service care areas in the country’s ten regions.

The equipment to be delivered over 2 years by DEM Group, it is reported, will enable Matgénie to expand on the road maintenance field, in accordance with a partnership contract signed with the Cameroonian municipalities; to increase its fleet for more efficient rental of equipment to companies; and to constitute a material resource for carrying out its own work in the construction sector.

DEM Group, the successful bidder on this contract, is the official supplier of equipment for the Hitachi, John Deere and Wirtgen Group brands, whose machinery is specialized in forestry, mining and road works. This Belgian company operates in more than 25 countries in Africa, including Cameroon, Algeria, DRC, Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, Morocco and Senegal, etc.
