Chinese computer consumable firm to establish Kenyan plant

Chinese computer consumable firm, Anycolor Computer Consumables Co., Ltd., has planned to establish a Kenyan manufacturing plant and an East African Marketing Center in 2018.

Anycolor is a high-tech firm which engages in research, development and production of full range computer comsumables. Arecolor is the subsidiary and premium consumables brand of Anycolor.

According to Xinhuanet, Arecolor Kenya General Manager Xu Huanwen said in Nairobi that they are seeking to establish a 10-million-U.S.-dollar-factory to produce printing consumables such as toner, ink, copy cartridges and power banks.

“We are currently looking for an ideal site in the special economic zones that has the entire necessary infrastructure,” Xu said.

Arecolor currently has two factories in China and the Kenyan facility will be the first overseas plant.

The East African nation is a suitable location because it has lower production costs as compared to China as well as a large pool of skilled manpower.

Arecolor also wants to help Kenya achieve its goal of expanding its manufacturing base that currently contributes approximately 10 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
