Mzuzu City Mayor Councillor William Mkandawire says the opening of G.Y Imports & Exports Branch in Mzuzu will bring healthy competition amongst traders in the city, which will result in high quality products being offered on the market.
Last week, G.Y Imports & Exports, dealers in ICT equipment, Stationery, furniture and sanitary materials opened a branch in Mzuzu after operating in Lilongwe for the past three years. The new branch is located off Boardman Road opposite Mzuzu Main Mosque.
Commenting on the coming of G.Y Imports & Exports in Mzuzu, the Mzuzu City father, who was guest of honour during the official opening of the new branch described the presence of the firm in the city as a positive development.
“This is a positive development for the city. The coming of G.Y Imports & Exports is going to bring competition amongst traders here. This will result in quality products being offered on the market because where there is competition there is quality,” said Mkandawire.
Mkandawire also said he was pleased that G.Y Imports & Exports, which is a wholly owned Malawian company was being run by a young entrepreneur, Griffin Kalua, whom he said would inspire other youths in the city to start their businesses.
Kalua, who is managing director for the company assured the Mayor and residents of the City that his company will be offering high quality products.
“The assurance we have for Mzuzu residents and the rest of customers in the northern region is that we are going to offer only high quality products. Our motto is ‘Totality of Quality All the Way,’ and we are not going to backtrack on the issue of quality,” said Kalua.
Kalua said the company decided to expand its wings to the north region because of the support it has been receiving from the northern part of Malawi.
“People have been traveling all the way from Rumphi, Karonga, Mzuzu, Mzimba and other parts of the northern region to buy our products in Lilongwe and we decided to take our services and products closer to their homes to cut the distance they were traveling,” he said.
