Cleia’s subsidiary Al Baraka CIE founded in Tunisia
Al Baraka CIE has two main shareholders: Cleia, initiator of the project and majority shareholder, and Al Baraka, the former workshop for the manufacture of dies, ducts and mechanically welded sub-sets. Its core activity consists of manufacturing part of the equipment designed by Cleia for the North African market. The company has the resources required to manufacture mechanically welded sub-sets, electric cabinets, and also to provide assembly and wiring services. Al Baraka CIE is located near Sousse, in an industrial area in the immediate proximity of a port and an airport. In addition, it is in the vicinity of several local brick plants, but also the tourist area. The location therefore offers a valuable commercial advantage.
This company is the bridgehead for Cleia’s development in Tunisia and Libya. The necessary skills will be progressively developed to ensure the realization and the start-up of plants. It will specialize in upgradable bricks plants adapted to this market. Another important task is customer support in these markets. The approach is guided by one goal: upgrading the technological standard and ensuring the progress of the local industrial enterprises to build high-end plants while ensuring after-sales and maintenance locally. Therefore Cleia has chosen to establish its subsidiary in Tunisia, in an area with a highly-skilled workforce. Another goal is to supply technology from this base to the North African market at competitive prices.
