GreenTec invests in Namibian technology manufacturer PEBL

Frankfurt (Germany) and Windhoek (Namibia), October 2018. GreenTec is pleased to announce its’ investment into Namibia-based PEBL, a producer of high-tech central processing units (CPUs) to support Africa’s growing IT needs. As more and more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are developing in Africa, their technology needs are growing. Yet despite this growth, the penetration of computers in Africa is still very low, with only three computers for every one thousand Africans. This is due in part to the low presence of major PC manufacturers on the continent as well as a lack of affordable options suitable to customer’s personal and business needs.

PEBL’s vision is to change this situation by manufacturing tailor-made CPUs that fit each customer’s identity and needs by giving them the option to customize their machines with the highest quality hardware and software components for a range of computing applications including IoT, media, home security, business computing, as well as a range of personal computing options.

PEBLs are high-performance, small form-factor computers uniquely configurable by the customer. Leveraging on the natural leap-frogging movement into the digital revolution, that Africa has adopted with respect to the latest technology, PEBL offers access to the latest and highest-quality component options (Intel chips, solid-state drives, 4K graphics, USB 3.0 and Type- C ports, built-in dual band Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity etc.) to be distinctively implemented in a computer that is designed for your precise personality and needs. Specifically designed to execute a novel heat management system with very low energy consumption – PEBL is partly manufactured in Namibia and the company is transitioning to moving all production processes to Namibia, with their local assembly line set to be operational mid 2019. Soon, each PEBL will be imbued with an intrinsic touch of Africa in a unique glass top-panel, crafted from sand sourced in Africa.

Aiming for the global market, PEBLs are the results of a global Africanism that translates the innovation, creativity, and cultural authenticity that are required to become the pride of anyone with African heritage – which is essentially the whole world.

PEBL is now available globally. Clients can order their uniquely customized PEBL on the company’s websiteand have them delivered to their doorstep. With its conveniently small size, 11.8cm x 11.8cm, PEBL computers are portable and elegant, each with a unique identity.
