The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic may have affected some businesses in Nigeria, but for the likes of Mikano International Limited, it has been about strategic positioning and planning.
In an exclusive interview with the Public Relations Officer of Mikano, David Fakuade, on the state of the company both during and after lockdown, he disclosed that they were able to pull through due to strong financial reserve.
He went on to add that Mikano despite observing the various government protocols on Covid-19, was able to maintain a large number of its staff as extra money was added to those that did exceptionally well during the tough period.
Fakuade noted that as a company, it is important to always plan well and think outside the box, which is what has helped Mikano stand as a company as they were also able to diversify into other sectors like foods (chocolates, wafers), medical masks, Mikano sanitizing machine, Mikano Sanitizing Frames, Mikano Sanitizing Tunnel and recently launched Mikano Automobile.
The PRO explained that the company is not slowing down as they plan to go into the manufacturing of syringes and other medical products anytime soon.
“We are also planning on going into things like syringes and other medical products,” he disclosed.
