Over time, we have received a number of accolades from our partners, customers, media and professional bodies as a result of our service excellence and increased performance. Most recently, The World Economic Forum (WEF) recognized CWG Plc as a Global Growth Company.
With over two decades of immense contribution to the Information and Communication Technology sector, CWG Plc has continuously remained a benchmark for excellence in Africa. The company commenced operations in Nigeria, on September 26th 1992 as Computer Warehouse Limited principally to cater for the hardware projects. In 1994, DCC Networks was established as the communication arm to provide VSAT, Metropolitan, Wide Area and Local area networks to corporate organizations. To concentrate on demands in the area of software solutions, system and training, the Expert Edge software was acquired in 1997
In 2005, CWG Plc was incorporated to coordinate and monitor the activities of the three subsidiaries. Prior to this establishment, a branch in Ghana was set-up in 2003 to cater to the needs of the West African region. The Group Company was formed to provide Head Office functions and Shared Resources for the subsidiaries from a central point to make them leaner, efficient and more customer-focused. By 2012, CWG Plc merged with its three subsidiaries and this made the subsidiaries cease to exist as separate entities, rather as divisions. In pursuit of its Pan-African Vision, CWG Plc established other regional offices in East and Central Africa; CWG Uganda Limited (2010) and CWG Plc Cameroon Limited (2012) respectively to handle the business interest in these regions.
In February 2013, CWG Plc ceased to be a Private Limited Company and became a Public Company. Also, on the 15th of November 2013, CWG Plc listed its shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The listing boosted the Market Capitalization of the NSE by about N14 billion naira, making CWG PLC the highest capitalized security in the ICT sector. CWG PLC’s listing also marked the first listing on the exchange after the launch of the X-Gen trading engine; the same engine used on the NASDAQ.
CWG Plc believes in and pursues an excellent service culture, and delivers its operations through global best practices using its ISO9001 certification process across the whole group.
