Night Sight Zambia Limited (NSZ) is an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Company on the Copperbelt Servicing just about the whole of the corporate industry in Chingola with clients also situated in Kitwe, Chililabombwe, Ndola and Solwezi.
We specialise in support and maintenance services, infrastructure solutions and technical consultancy services and also offer hardware sales to existing clients as a value added service.
Night Sight Zambia Limited Managing Director, Francois Marx, was a Project Manager on the original Team that came to the Copperbelt in November 2000 under a South African company called Intrinsic Technology (Pty) Ltd. Through the course of 2001 – 2003, Intrinsic Technology installed the new Fibre Optic Data and Copper Telephone Networks for Konkola Copper Mines, Mopani Copper Mines and the CEC OPGW Network. Combined contract values were in excess of USD13m.
Multi Vendor Services Limited (MVS) was registered in 2002 with Francois Marx appointed as Manager – North beginning of 2003. The decision to establish in Zambia proved fruitful and by the second financial year end revenue had increased from USD293k per year to USD160k per month.
Looking to expand its international operations, one of the largest ICT companies in South Africa, namely BCX (Business Connexion (Pty) Ltd), acquired the Intrinsic Technology Group in 2005 for its African footprint in Zambia, Angola, Tanzania and Mozambique.
Francois Marx was retained as Manager of Northern Zambia and toward the end of 2007 identified an opportunity in the market to supply high quality safety signs and equipment. BCX was reluctant to get involved in an industry outside of their core business and with management approval Night Sight Zambia Limited (NSZ) was registered by Francois Marx and Zambian Resident Mark Reeves in January 2008.
During the Global Credit Crunch of 2008/2009 Business Connexion (Pty) Ltd, as most large international companies, had to reinvent itself and as part of their restructuring process it made a strategic decision to cease operations on the Copperbelt in July 2009 keeping only their Lusaka Branch in Zambia.
Disagreeing with BCX’s decision to close their Copperbelt offices, Francois Marx relinquished the Repatriation to South Africa clause in his employment contract and amicably agreed with BCX to stay on the Copperbelt and continue doing ICT business under his own name.
Mr. Marx’ took full control and ownership of Night Sight Zambia.
Apart from three employees for whom employment was secured with existing clients, all BCX Copperbelt staff was retained.
Since the uncertain times of especially the first few months following July 2009 NSZ has proven its staying power to all existing, previous and future clients.
