Who We Are
We are Solevo, a leading specialty chemicals distribution platform and partner to farmers, businesses, industrial leaders and communities across Africa.
Secular megatrends across the continent – a fast-growing middle class, rapid urbanization, scarcity of resources, and the impacts of climate change – are creating both disruption and opportunity for chemical companies and the networks they serve. Solevo’s business segments are critical GDP drivers in each of our geographies.
Our market-leading technical and application experts are meeting the accelerating demand for specialty chemicals across Africa, supporting the continent-wide drive for agricultural self-sufficiency and growth of local industry.
Solevo’s geographic footprint, business segmentation and product portfolio are ideally positioned to meet evolving demand across the continent, through bespoke, sustainable products and innovative solutions.
Customer centricity is at the core of everything we do; we deliver value through innovative routes to market, tailored portfolio management, procurement and application lab services, guaranteed quality and just-in-time deliveries.
Our Business Segments
Our solutions and value-add services across Africa’s agricultural sector seek to support an improvement in revenues for farmers and enhance productivity across the continent’s entire agricultural ecosystem.
Food & nutrition
Our work in food and nutrition with customers, businesses and communities across our geographies seeks to meet the need for increased production of higher quality food across the continent.
Personal care and hygiene
Major shifts in the demand profile for hygiene products – from personal care to home and laundry – are accelerating as a result of the rapid evolution in Africa’s demographics and urban centres.
Across Africa, the development of essential water and wastewater structures is a core priority for all stakeholders – governments, investors and corporate actors.
The fabric of the construction environment across Africa is undergoing dynamic transformation, with rapid urbanization, demographic growth, a need for housing and critical infrastructure.
Mining & Energy
As Africa’s dynamic transformation continues, the opportunity for extractive industries, minerals and ores is evolving rapidly, but there is also a need for energy as a building block for growing economies.
The exponential growth of FMCG across Africa has driven new demand for packaging – from cardboard boxes to food packing solutions – across all consumer goods channels.
Sustainability: Building a Better Future
We are committed to advancing the sustainability profile of Solevo – and maximising its contribution to Africa’s sustainable development – through the allocation of the right expertise and resources. We are confident that the continuous improvement of our sustainability program will be recognized by the firm achieving ECOVADIS Platinum certification by 2026, following our receipt of Silver certification in 2022.
We are always open to new talent joining our team of experts operating in 8 countries across West and Central Africa. We have built a powerful distribution platform and have the ambition of becoming the ‘partner of choice’ in Africa’s fast-growing speciality chemicals market. We are seeking people like you to help us build the next pan-African leader.
