21 March 2019

The London Stock Exchange Group has recognised Imperial Logistics’ healthcare business in Nigeria, Worldwide Healthcare, as one of the “Companies to Inspire Africa” for 2019. This is one of several accolades recently bestowed on Imperial Logistics’ African Regions division.

Johan Truter, CEO of Imperial Logistics’ African Regions division, notes that Worldwide Healthcare’s proud position on the London Stock Exchange Group’s Companies to Inspire Africa Report is a tribute to the hard work of the entire Worldwide Healthcare team. The report recognises high-growth firms that are crucial to the future of the African economy - capable of driving transformative economic growth in their home countries, Africa and beyond. This year marked the second edition of the Companies to Inspire Africa Report, which is published with the support and collaboration of PricewaterhouseCoopers, African Development Bank Group, the UK's development finance institution CDC Group, and research partner Asoko Insight.

 “Making it on to this prestigious list of Africa’s most inspirational high-growth businesses is a significant accomplishment in the current challenging market conditions. It is the result of the stellar efforts of the leadership and all the employees at Worldwide Healthcare.”

Other recent accolades garnered by Imperial Logistics’ African Regions division include a “Distributor of the Year” award for its pharmaceutical distributor business in Kenya. Truter expands: “Surgipharm has been honoured as ‘Distributor of the Year in Anglophone Africa’ by global health and hygiene company, Essity. This award recognises Surgipharm’s outstanding distribution performance for Essity, including growing market share for our client’s medical solutions range and capturing competitor market share,” he explains.

In another achievement in East Africa, the Kenya Revenue Authority has presented Imperial Logistics’ Managed Solutions business with a top taxpayer’s award. “This annual award recognises businesses for exemplary tax compliance. We were very honoured to have the trophy presented by the President of the Republic of Kenya, His Excellency Honourable Uhuru Kenyatta, to Imperial Managed Solutions’ East Africa finance director Martin Mbugua,” Truter says.
