Channel IT Group is a diverse group of companies which plays a major role in bringing infrastructure, technologies and services to Emerging Markets that shape the way people live, work, learn and socialize.

It all started when Channel IT was founded in 2003 as the Master Distributor for Dell Computers for Nigeria. In 2005 we entered the Telecommunication arena with the Andrew (a CommScope company) range of Antenna, RF and Tower products. Within 3 years Channel IT received the award for being Andrew’s biggest distributor in the Africa, Middle East and European region.

Over the years Channel IT has enabled operators across West Africa to speed up their mobile network roll-outs by delivering base station infrastructure on-time. 2011 marked the beginning of yet another growth era. Channel IT EMEA FZ-LLC was established in Dubai to service the Middle East and the African markets outside West Africa. In the same year the Group made its debut in the mobile Value Added Services space through the launch of Nairtime, an Airtime Credit Services company.

The rapidly expanding portfolio of mobile VAS products prompted the creation of ChannelVAS, a company that is destined to become a leading vendor of mobile VAS and Mobile Financial Services for Emerging Markets across the globe. 2013 saw two additions to the Channel IT Group; Channel Technologies, an R&D arm that develops platforms and applications for the industries that the Group operates in and Channel Power, a company that provides Electrical Infrastructure Products and Engineering Services to Generating, Transmission and Distribution companies in Nigeria.

We follow a business model of embracing opportunities, delivering on the promise and creating empowered companies that are backed by the Group’s synergies.
