We now have a little more information about the project on which Cameroonian engineer Arthur Zang is currently putting the finishing touches, after the success of his Cardiopad, the first African medical tablet, which continues to win more awards throughout the world.
The inventor of the Cardiopad has indeed just revealed that the new company specialized in the manufacture of magnetic cards, which he is getting ready to launch in the Cameroonian capital, is called Zng Smart Card Factory. It will help generate, Arthur Zang repeats, 150 direct jobs.
According to the future CEO of this magnetic card factory, the premises are already available. There is only the need now, we learn, to proceed with the customs clearance of the 600 tons of equipment currently stocked at the Douala port, in the economic capital of the country. An operation which could be hardly made possible the FCfa 23 million prize just won by the Cardiopad, at the end of the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering of the United Kingdom.
