As a testament of the rising profile of Belfast based businesses, Belfast based company; The Alpha Group has landed a lucrative deal to fit-out offices in the Nigerian capital, Abuja. This is one of the biggest contracts that the company has secured overseas in the history of its operations.
The deal was secured through the group’s design arm; 1080 in collaboration with Senator, which is a UK company. This is a clear indicator that business collaborations are an obvious and highly effective avenue to increasing a company’s prospects in the local and international arena.
According to Paul Black, who is Alpha Group’s chief executive, the Nigerian contract will significantly boost the company’s international profile. With the main benefit being that potential clients will now have a testimonial of The Alpha Group’s capacity in delivering high quality outcomes through excellent logistics and expertise regardless of geographical location.
Considering that many international organisations prefer to have consistency in the designs of their offices and facilities in different cities and areas of operation this is a good opportunity for the company to showcase its capacity to deliver on the international stage.
Though speculation is rife with many different figures being floated as to the numbers involved in the Abuja contract, The Alpha Group has remained tight lipped on the actual value of the deal.
