Kayode Thomas, CEO of BOG, recently met with the Deputy CEO (Venkata Subramanian) and Sales Manager (Anupam Ojha) of Gerab National Enterprises in Dubai. Gerab is a major supplier of pipes, fittings, flanges, stud bolts, valves, gaskets and other bulk material world-wide, with over 35 years experience, having been founded in 1977. Gerab’s accumulated experience of managing bulk supplies for projects and day to day requirement cannot be matched by any other stockist in the region. Gerab has grown to become a leading international trading firm.
Over the last three decades Gerab has built a brand image that is synonymous with trust, quality and reliability in the steel piping application business. The company has become a leading bulk supplier of seamless, welded pipes and allied components for the oil and gas, power generation, water desalination, mining and construction industries. It has a warehousing hub in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in the United Arab Emirates.
The meeting was to leverage on Gerab’s strength and get the company’s products before clients in Nigeria. Overtime, BOG intends to hold stock to meet customers’ demands in support of this initiative.
“Inspite of the present lull in the industry, we are busy prepping ourselves for future opportunities. We are aware that things will change and we are using the lull time to prepare our offerings to enable us make the most of opportunities that will abound in the nearest future” – Kayode Thomas said.
