The company is located in the Central business area of Nairobi on Ngara Road, Human House.

The main facilities available include offices, a conference/training room, a quality control laboratory, a fully equipped workshop, a warehouse with cold room facilities, a backup power generator and enough parking area for both staff and visitors’ vehicles.
