In the beginning of April, our team had visited Zimbabwe for meeting with our customers who are looking for maize milling machines.
The pure steel, maize and wheat milling machines at the the 24th Uganda International Trade Fair.
It was a huge surprise at the 24th Uganda International Trade Fair, how a pure steel maize and wheat milling machines were simply setup for customer’s reviews. All the way from the factory to Uganda and at the show ground, it was unimaginable. The people at the show were amazed that the shipping was not only for the show but it can as well be shipped for the client, up to site ground.
This was real and physically witnessed when one of the head of the farmers’ association, Mr Mabirizi decided to buy a maize and wheat milling machine at a more discounted price, for his community . The dispatch was going to happen on the second last day of the exhibition as was announced by the manager from Hongdefa maize and wheat milling machines factory. Her name as she introduced herself, Rita. I made sure that I was available.
While at the show ground, Rita was really interactive and friendly. We approached her, inquired more about the machines and the factory; She proudly answered each one’s question with utmost patience. People whispered in the local language ‘Luganda’ about her accent, they found it interesting to listen to. We took photos and selfies with her. She must have made very many friends at the exhibition.
One of the listeners asked this one question that got everyone’s attention. We impatiently awaited for her reply. “why don’t you establish a showroom here in Uganda where we can easily access your products?”, Evelyn asked. Her reply was exceptional. ”Hongdefa maize and wheat milling machinery being the only suppliers of pure steel milling machines in Africa, they have central headquarters in Zanzibar,” she replied. And that the company has trained specialists in charge of the machinery services. She promised to address our other concerns to the administration back at hongdefa flour milling factory
