Perry of Oakley, a British company with a 73 year heritage in the design, manufacture and installation of grain handling, drying and storage equipment, has established Perry East Africa, with registered offices in Kampala, Uganda
This will complement its existing Africa office, Perry Africa, registered in South Africa.
This is a clear indication of the importance Perry of Oakley, through its international subsidiary Perry Engineering Services, places on the ever-expanding African market.
David Perry, the third-generation owner and managing director of Perry of Oakley, has announced that Perry East Africa will be opening a training facility in Uganda in March 2021.
The facility aims to provide hands-on training for customers’ employees in the professional operation of grain handling and storage facilities. It will also give the opportunity for potential customers to view their products and even spend time with the operators before they make purchasing decisions.
It is intended that the training will be without charge, as an indication of Perry’s commitment to enhance the post harvest knowledge base in Uganda and East Africa as a whole, which means that as soon as a customer receives their Perry equipment, they are already experienced in its use and the theories behind post harvest technology.
David Perry said, “Since my early visits to Uganda and sub Saharan Africa as a whole I have been excited by the agricultural prospects in these countries, and we look forward to not only being able to promote our products at the training facility but to also enhance the overall post harvest knowledge in Uganda and East Africa as time goes on.”
