Message from the President Dear Visitor:thumbnail_15 A warm welcome to our website and thank you for your visit! Our site is designed to provide you with information on how our company supports current and prospective partners in the electric power industry in Africa and the United States do business with each other more efficiently and profitably. Energy, in its various forms, is at the core of every aspect of human endeavor. At Marison Energy Systems, our objective is to contribute to the development of the generation, transmission and distribution of electric energy in Africa. We do so by forging win-win partnerships between American providers of technology and equipment and electric utilities and mining and industrial companies in Africa. We have found that once the misconceptions and perceptions of risk related to US-Africa business exchanges have been replaced by understanding and awareness, American and African companies can establish successful and mutually beneficial relations. The result is the broadening of Africa’s options and the direct access to innovative and cost effective technologies as well as the development of new opportunities for American firms. Our concept of Africa encompasses all the countries on the continent, from the Atlantic Coast to the Indian Ocean and from the southern shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the Cape of Good Hope. Somewhere in that vast expense, there may be opportunities for your company. Our expertise is to work with you to identify and qualify them and turn them into successful transactions. The location of our corporate headquarters in the Boston area, one of the most innovative and technological diverse regions of the world, gives us a distinct advantage in identifying new and proven technologies for our African partners. As a person born in Africa and who has now made a home in the United States, I feel privileged to be in a position to facilitate business between these two great regions of our common world. It is a mission that I and all the employees and associates of Marison Energy Systems carry out with the utmost integrity, professionalism and effectiveness. We welcome your questions and inquiries and look forward to hearing from you.
