Zinox dedicates OEM award to TotalFinaElf

Zinox Computers has dedicated its latest Award as the Best Original Equipment Manufacturer, (OEM), to TotalFinaElf for the company’s unwavering commitment to indigenous technology.

Receiving the award, which held in Lagos recently, the Managing Director, Zinox Computers Mr. Emomine Mukoro commended the management of CommunicationsWeek, saying that the heights attained by Zinox Computers today may not have been possible without the unflinching support of companies like TotalFinaElf.

He also said that the records show that at the launch of Zinox, TotalFinaElf demonstrated great foresight and understanding by standardizing on Zinox Computers.

Mukoro said that the action by TotalFinaelf was not the result of any persuasive marketing overtures nor was it motivated by any social factors but was based purely on the desire of the TotalFinaElf management to encourage the growth of local technology.

He recalled that in spite of the inspiring scope of the Zinox launch, many companies remained skeptical about the capacity of Nigerians to deliver on the promise of manufacturing world class computers.

“Most of the blue chip companies adopted the negative Nigerian attitude of ‘siddon look’ but TotalFinaElf aligned herself to the collective aspirations of Nigerians by being the very first company to standardize on Zinox Computers,” he said.

Therefore, Mukoro called on the Federal Government to establish a process that would automatically reward corporate persons like TotalFinaElf for incorporating local content in their operations.

“Multinationals should pay more than lip service to the concept of giving back to Nigeria and Nigerians by emulating the example of TotalFinaElf,” he said.

Earlier, the editor, CommunicationsWeek, Mr. Ken Nwogbo said that the award of the Best OEM of the Year 2009 was won by Zinox Computers for a number of reasons.

He noted that the globally competitive quality of Zinox Computers has remained consistent over the last decade in addition to the fact that Zinox PCs have done more than any other OEM in this country, through themes and schemes, to speed up the pace of ICT penetration in the country.

According to him, Zinox Computer brand has attained cumulative multi lateral values that mean many positive things to the Nigerian project including being a source of national hope and pride, enjoining other Nigerian companies to borrow a leaf from the steadfast focus of Zinox Computers.
