Founded in 2013, AADCO Paper Factory (“AADCO”) is a paper factory based in Hargeisa, Somaliland. AADCO manufactures exercise books and A4 printing paper. It has grown its paper factory from 18 staff (2013), producing 1,000 cartons of A4 printing paper and 3,600 cartons of exercise books, to 52 staff (2017), producing 10,239 cartons of A4 printing paper and 36,060 cartons of exercise books.
With Shuraako’s assistance, AADCO obtained the necessary funds to expand its manufacturing capacity through the construction of an additional building within its current facility. The Shuraako-facilitated investment also supported AADCO in introducing new products and reduced the company’s dependence on imported color print covers.
