For many years historians questioned the nature of the Phoenicians who were scattered across the Mediterranean basin. For many years, they tried to understand what pushed this race to face the dangers of the sea while seeking out new land. Was it for the love of contact and trade, their wish to connect the sea with land or their intention to create a commercial network across the Mediterranean? …. Contrary to the Greeks who set out mainly to settle, the Phoenicians were constantly in search of new markets, encouraged by the idea of finishing a maritime adventure.

ENERGIS. was established in 1992 by one man, with the help of Phoenician tradesmen, who set out to provide efficient and structured support to French and European companies wishing to develop their markets in the Middle East. The main objective of Jihad Feghali, an MBA graduate of INSEAD, Fontainebleau and also a graduate of l’Ecole Catholique des Arts et Métiers (ECAM), was to assure the strategic and logistic interface between French, European companies and companies in the Middle East.
Specialised in the transfer of technology between Europe and the Middle East, the aim of ENERGIS. is to distribute specific equipment and products from French and European countries to areas such as the Gulf, Middle East and North Africa.

ENERGIS.’s know- how is based on three main principles:

1. Understanding the market: which consists of detecting bids, putting companies into contact with each other, meeting local agents in target markets and remaining constantly attentive to the development of the market.

2.Sales: The sales teams based in Paris, Beirut and the sales agents in Iraq, Jordan and Syria not only offer commercial aid on a daily basis and during negotiations but also carry out the essential role of providing advice. They organise projects and group meetings (guaranteeing a systematic and sometimes group presence at the larger business fairs) in order to define common objectives and determine the necessary means to put them into place, all of which is carried out respecting an effort from both parties.

3.The management of logistics: is assured by engineers and technicians whose aim is to   optimise the distribution of the product, from its departure to its final destination. This consists of assisting and almost taking full charge of customs procedures, administrative work and sometimes the reception of goods…..

This 3 part strategy is of immense benefit, notably to the partner companies who can concentrate on their activities, succeed in their careers and maximize their presence abroad.
