Our History

History & Birth of AB Global Trading Pvt Ltd co.

Being one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, Ethiopia is a country on the cusp of transformation. Business activities are also growing up in multiple dimensions in various sectors including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics manufacturing, and distributions.

Driven by the current tremendous growth Ethiopia is experiencing in recent years, AB GLOBAL TRADING PLC was established in Ethiopia by two Ethiopia Born Americans Mr Gemeda Firisa and Wakgari Geleta and Eden Adamu making its registered head office at Addis Ketema Subcity, Wereda 05, Hno No : New/106 as per the Ethiopian Commercial law and being granted its license from Ministry of Trade of Ethiopia and competency certificate from Ethiopian Food Drug Administration (EFDA).

However, the tremendous growth in Ethiopia has resulted in shortage of foreign currency. Because of this situation, many importers could not able import medicines and various goods in a timely manner and as needed. Because they don’t have their own source of foreign currency. This was one of the main reasons for the establishment of AB GLOBAL TRADING to use foreign currency generated in U.S.A for the import and distribution of medicines.

Mr Gemeda and Wakari have been in the U.S.A for more than 15 years and have succeeded in in creating good companies called UNITED TRANSPORT Systems.

In 2018, Mr Gemeda and Wakgari opened AB GLOBAL in Ethiopia along with other two Ethiopians which is located in Addis Ababa and its main activities are import and distribution of various goods to and from Ethiopia.

In 2019, Mr Gemeda and Wakgari again opened another import and export company with Mr Daniel Waktole.

In Less than 12 months after its establishment, AB GLobal Trading plc have started import and distribution of medicines from renown Indian companies like CENTAUR Pharmaceuticals Ltd & Medopharm Pvt Ltd of India with consignment worth of USD 300,000 reached our store.

Agreement have been finalized with MEDOPHARMA and MEDICAMEN Biotech Limited of India and import will start soon.
