Siginon Roots Growing In Africa

Siginon Roots Growing Africa

     “We are committed to consistently serving our airline customers with exceptional service that is benchmarked against global standards,” declared Jared Oswago, Divisional Manager, Siginon Aviation at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi. Singapore Airlines Cargo, a Siginon business partner for the past ten years, re-signed its handling contract for an additional three years.
     Named for a tree found in the Rift Valley of Kenya, Siginon Aviation Group is a multi-modal handling company that has been in business since 1985, when it began in Mombasa with four people and a couple of trucks.

     Today the company serves East Africa cargo and logistics, including the seaport of Mombasa as well as the airports of Mombasa and Eldoret.
     Siginon debuted a large new cargo-handling center at JKIA in 2014 featuring all the bells and whistles, including the finest cool-chain operation at the gateway.
     Siginon sees itself expanding its business base upon completion of the very exciting standard gauge high-speed Kenya railway, which is scheduled for operation by mid 2017.
     The Sh400 billion infrastructure investment will unlock movement between the Port of Mombasa and Kenya’s capital of Nairobi.
     But business will get even better when the line extends SGR to Uganda, Rwanda, and South Sudan.
     No doubt, Africans are excited and preparing for what is expected to be a major boost in transportation and employment.
     The positive effects can even be felt ahead of the rail line debut in Kenya, evidenced by the reported 50,000 people employed directly or impacted in some measure by the SGR mega-project.
     “Our passion is to be Africa’s leader in logistics and air cargo handling,” beams Ruth Nduta, Brand & Corporate Affairs Manager at Siginon Group.
