Creating Value Through Easy Solutions to Complex Tasks
Actively seeking sourcing for brands and execution of quality assessments and factory inspections,
A brief insight into our foundations
Joa and Rock was registered in 2009 in Nigeria and have been creating value for our clients by providing them easy solutions to complex tasks. In 2009 we started as a sourcing company, fulfilling purchase orders and in 2015 as a result of increased cross-border trade with China, we decided to travel all the way to the middle kingdom and unravel the mystery of the “factory of the world”! Little did we know, this journey would last 5 years, and open a world of opportunities for us and our clients. Since 2016, we have expanded our services to include factories setup, investments consulting, joint ventures and franchising partnerships facilitation, and most recently heavy-duty equipment purchase and resale.
