The Top10 Magazine Excellence Awards 2021: Dr. Stephen Amaechi Chinemelum – Integrity Business Person of the Year

There are a number of manufacturers and suppliers of phone and other types of accessories in the Nigerian market, but only few stand out from the rest in terms of quality products: Dr. Stephen A. Chinemelum, founder and CEO of Fedan Investment Limited (FIL), is one of the few credible ones. While others take the easy road to profitability by resorting to counterfeiting and manufacture of poor quality products, Chinemelum prefers the tedious route of credibility and integrity. He has never swayed from that path since inception when his company chose “think quality, think FIL” as its slogan and “quality validity” as its watch word. According to Dr. Chinemelum, “once you uphold integrity in whatever you do, the sky will be your beginning because everything everyman is doing has a time of testing. In business steadfastness is needed, hard work is needed…”

In order to meet the world quality standards of its customers all over Africa and beyond, his company’s team of engineers and quality control experts conduct stringent quality tests in conformity with the provisions of standards organization of Nigeria (SON). FIL’s brand of products has passed several tests all the tests. That is the secret behind the high demand for FIL’s communication gadgets/Lightnings, Electrical Appliances/ Accessories and CCTV Gadgets.

Dr. Chinemelum, explains: “Over time, our products have increased in demand because of the quality we offer and we are trying to make sure people get what they pay for and sometimes when you hear of mobile phones explosion it’s because of issues like battery problem which can be dangerous to the community and the environment. We at Fedan investment are trying to make sure that any of our products which comes into the public eye is quality and very durable. People who are aware of the quality Fedan products offers always purchase our products and go as far as recommending to others and this has brought about awareness that Fedan gives the public what they need.”

Dr. Chinemelum incorporated Fedan Investment Limited with the corporate affairs commission in 1994 to engage in importation and distribution. Within a short span of time, it has attained phenomenal heights due to its quality products, professionalism, prompt and steady supply of its range of products which score high in terms of attractive packaging and finishing, performance, and durability.

         The company’s strength and expertise lie in its team of a dedicated workforce which is composed of highly qualified and skilled professionals who perform their jobs to perfection. They constitute the bulwark of the company with an excellent sense of customer relations that continue to strive to achieve its corporate objective in line with Dr. Chinemelum’s vision.

Dr. Chinemelum’s goal, beginning from 2022, is to penetrate the African market and take control of the Africa mobile market both in electrical equipment and mobile accessories and also the CCTV cameras.  “We believe by then everybody would have Fedan International on their lips and we believe people on their own would be recommending the products within our scope because we know what we are giving to the people. We believe by that time we would have taken over the African market and would have employed over 2000 to 3000 youths,” Dr. Chinemelum explained.
