Gemi Pharmacure (PTY) Ltd. is a start-up 100% subsidiary of Gemi Group (PTY) Ltd; a wholly Botswana citizen-owned diversified investment company whose primary function is to explore, identify and capitalize on economic and market opportunities in Africa. Gemi Group is a private holding company incorporated and headquartered in Botswana, with a mission to establish the country as a continental manufacturing hub for medical and related products. In this endevour, the group was responsible for the first male latex condom manufacturing plant in Botswana. At setup in 2007, the plant was the only condom manufacturing facility in Africa. In 2010, Gemi Group set-up a second state-of-the-art condom manufacturing plant in Lobatse, to exploit the export market. Gemi Rubber is now the largest condom company in Africa and currently has contracts to supply both female and male condoms to several African Governments including Botswana, South Africa, Cameroon, Chad, Congo (Brazzaville) and Central Republic of Africa. The company is developing one of the largest condom plants in the world, in a 12,000 Sq.M. of serviced industrial land in Lobatse, acquired from the Government of Botswana. This estimated US$7 million project will have twelve (12) manufacturing lines with a combined annual capacity of close to half a billion condoms geared towards the SADC Regional market. Also in planning is the first and only latex medical (surgical and examination) gloves manufacturing facility in Botswana. The glove factory is being located in Lobatse in support of the town's developmental efforts. For the COMESA market, we have set up East Africa Latex Manufacturers (EALM) in Kenya; a Joint Venture project with a Kenyan business consortium. We expect to start production in Kenya in 2012.
