Nexus Charcoal’s primary business involves the harvesting of wood and the production of charcoal, consisting of three product categories, namely lumpwood / barbeque charcoal for households, charcoal briquettes for households, and lumpwood charcoal for restaurants and exporting these products to international distributors and/or off-takers.
Nexus Charcoal acquired a property, erf 1113 Ext. Six, in the Western Industrial area in Outjo to process and pack their products for the export market. We’ve invested over N$12mil in our plant to ensure a superior product reach our customers to their satisfaction. We now completed the construction on our processing plant which includes a screening process to guarantee size and quality. The plant includes an automatic packaging system to cater for both paper bags and polypropylene bags, in weight and sizes as requested by our clients.
Our warehouse facilities are 1600m² under roof and we further invested in storage facilities of 540m² in extra storage for our charcoal to weather at least 21 days before packaging.
Our plant is designed to process 5000 metric tons of restaurant and BBQ charcoal products, and another 5000 metric tons of charcoal briquettes. We will export in 40’ HC containers from Walvis Bay Port. Although we haven’t secured any off-take agreements yet, we are planning to export at least 20 containers per month to our overseas clients. We have target to reach this goal within in 6 months of operation.
