Francophone West Africa

AEL Mining Services in Francophone West Africa is represented though its portfolio of in-country entities AECI Burkina Faso, AECI Mali, AECI Guinea, AECI Senegal and AECI Côte d’Ivoire. Our long history of more than 20 years in the West Africa region started in Ghana and has grown over the years to such an extent that it became necessary to split the business into two portfolios.

The expansion into French speaking countries that formed the Francophone West Africa portfolio resulted in the development of a strong logistics network second to none with investment of more than USD23million in numerous transport routes, production, storage and manufacturing facilities established throughout the region, providing customers with peace of mind and reliability of supply from our multiple locations. We supply some of the largest mines in the Francophone region particularly in Burkina Faso and recently commissioned 2 new 3,000tpm bulk emulsion plants, a 2nd in Burkina Faso and our first in Senegal.
