The power control equipment has also been deployed at CRDB Bank Plc, NMB Bank Plc, Equity Bank Tanzania , Kenya Commercial  Bank (KCB), Tanzania  Cigarette Company Limited (TCC), Tanzania Breweries Limited and Mloganzila Hospital.

“I’m very happy to have a presence in Tanzania to supply quality branded equipment from the US,” he noted while promising customers of reliable services once the equipment is purchased.
