GemNet Today

In the short time that GemNet has been in existence, it enjoys an excellent reputation in the markets it operates in. This has been made possible by its commitment to excellence, GemNet's aim is to be a leading supplier of its products and services in selected emerging markets in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

The GemNet philosophy is to live and die by its professionalism and integrity, which are generally commodities in short supply in its markets of operation. Our philosophy is based upon building deep and long lasting relationships with our customers, by providing quality products and services, rather than seeking to profit exclusively from short-term opportunities. As these markets are generally susceptible to short term political and economic changes, GemNet has always taken a long-term view on its product distribution and infrastructure investments, and to this end, compromised short-term profits that might have led to long term failures.
