"West Africa is a region with more than 300 million inhabitants and represents one of the fastest growing areas on the African continent," said Arnon Horev, VP Sales and Marketing for BioElectronics. He continued, "With distribution based out of Nigeria, which is Africa's most populous country, we believe Lemmy's can be very successful in distributing our products. We welcome them to our growing international distribution family."
