It is absolutely correct for anyone to ask, how Electric World came about?
The very simple answer would then be it is the main brain child of Electrofix. Electrofix was established early 1971 as a small retailing and importing business for electrical installation and lighting materials around Piazza near the old post office in Addis Ababa. Over 30 years its activities developed into wholesale and distribution catering to the retail trade and also supplying major projects in the construction industry.
The growing demand for project sales gave way to our assembling workshops for low and medium voltage electrical distribution boards for high-rise building and industrial setups.
Besides assembling, our team of electrical engineers took care of installation and technical advice to electricians and electrical contractors. All these added up effects have put Electrofix in the forefront of the electrical field. With a view of expanding the scope of its activities Electrofix gave birth to Electric World PLC., in early 1998 with a paid up capital of Birr 1.2 million to fully engage in large undertakings in this growing field of electrical supplies & engineering service.
In a period of one year Electric World raised its paid up capital to Birr 3 million and the company’s annual turnover reached all times high of Birr 12 million exceeding all times sales of Electrofix in the past years. At this moment the capital grew to birr 6 million and the annual turnover to birr 35 million. Presently, we employee 38 people for all our activities. Since the Electric World with added experience from Electrofix to Electric world with a total of 38 years today has expanded the business to such an extent that it has become one of the well known companies in this field of electrical and lighting materials supply, assembly and manufacturing of wires & cables.
In the coming few years the management of Electric World PLC plans to further expand the scope of its activities to stand out as one of the prominent companies in the field of electrical and development of renewable energy supply for rural Ethiopia.
The satisfaction of our customers and the undivided loyalty and dedication of our employees has contributed greatly to our success.
