Achelis is a long-established German trading company that was founded in 1826. It is headquartered in the Hanseatic City of Bremen, and has a network of associated companies and representatives in many countries in Eastern Africa and South-East Asia. The Achelis Group of companies has a long history in Eastern Africa with operations that have been in existence locally for over 55 years.
The Joh. Achelis & Söhne GmbH in Bremen is active in the project business and participates mainly in international tenders in various African countries. Here, the subsidiaries or local agents are involved in the respective markets. The projects mainly include deliveries from the Healthcare / Scientific, Technical / Industrial, Energy / Water and Oil / Gas sectors.
In the core markets of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, the subsidiaries also have local business activities. Sales are made on own account mainly in the area of technical & industrial equipment. In addition, service work (maintenance and repair) is carried out by our own workshops. In all three countries, there are also separate subsidiaries active in the leasing business.
The activities in Asia are now limited to purchasing for the project business in Bremen. With the sale of the Achelis company in Taiwan at the end of 2017, the group only has one company in Hong Kong, whose activities were discontinued years ago. Achelis is therefore today a pure Africa company with the clear objective to expand both the product portfolio, as well as the sales markets on the African continent.
