Inventta Limited is a major supplier of equipment for the Transmission and Distribution of Energy. Headquartered in Singapore, the company has a procurement office in Shanghai, a business development office in Johannesburg, and a Manufacturing Plant and Distribution Warehouse in Lusaka, Zambia.
Although the Power Industry remains the core business of Inventta, the company also trades in Personal Protection Equipment, Lineman's Tools, Power Tools, Hand Tools, Construction Machines and Trucks and Special Vehicles, making it an ideal one stop shop for EPC contractors and Power Utilities alike. Some of these products are distributed in Sub-Saharan Africa through reseller agreements with international partners, while others are manufactured in-house in the Company's manufacturing plant.
The Company is made up of a multicultural talented team with extensive experience in Engineering, Logistics, Finance and Business Development. The team strives every day to ensure that the Company's wide range of products is supplied timely to its customer base, which include Government Institutions, Semi-State Bodies and Private EPC contractors.
The company owns and operates its own fleet of vehicles (Super-Links and Tri-Axles) to transport cargo within the Sub-Saharan African region, offering full control over its own deliveries and making sure that a deadline is never missed. In addition to this, our logistics department is expert in finding the best sea/air shipping routes to ensure the products arrive in the shortest and most economical way to any destination around the world.
