PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Acrow Bridge, a leading international bridge engineering and supply company, recently participated in a special briefing for foreign media on U.S. private sector investment in Africa. The event was hosted by the U.S. Department of State at the New York Foreign Press Center in New York City.
“Africa is an economic success story that we are proud to be a part of,” said Paul Sullivan, Director of International Business Development at Acrow. “Strong collaboration between the public and private sectors in the U.S. and Africa continues to nurture a favorable business environment, creating new market opportunities for U.S. companies while contributing to the region’s broad-based economic growth and development.”
Acrow has been doing business in Africa for a number of years. Thousands of its prefabricated modular steel bridges connect people and communities across the continent, improving access to schools, hospitals and greater economic opportunity. In the process, Acrow has trained hundreds of African engineers and contractors in bridge assembly, installation and maintenance.
As part of its commitment to the region, Sullivan currently chairs the Infrastructure Working Group of The Corporate Council on Africa, a non-profit organization in which members represent nearly 85 percent of total U.S. private sector investments in Africa.
