MAKTECH’S JOURNEY BEGAN in 2000 with the arrival of Tanzania’s leading network operator, Vodacom, who entered a market with a combined subscriber base from the incumbents of a mere 70 000. Maktech’s inception formed from behind the network operator scenes delivering active network infrastructure. Its founder and now Chairman, Godwin Makyao has led the growth of the company and its brand. Partnering with operators like Vodacom in over 80% of all its active network roll outs, currently rolling out swap and upgrade in over 700 sites. Launched in 2003, Maktech’s small team of four focused its core business on BSS, BTS, BSC, Power and Transmission infrastructure implementation, and committed singularly to delivering only high quality solutions. Makyao’s vision was impressed on the small company and now quality permeates throughout its business units today. With 150 staff and growing, its regional base rises from its own five story headquarters in Dar es Salaam.
