INVITATION FOR PRE-QUALIFICATION FOR PROVISION OF PROPERTY MAINTENANCE SERVICES FOR ZCCM-IH BUILDINGS
ZCCM Investments Holdings Plc. (ZCCM-IH) is an investments holding company with significant investments in Zambia’s mining industry. The Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) holds 87.53% of the shares in ZCCM-IH (the Company), with the remaining 12.47% being held by private investors. The geographical spread of the minority shareholders covers 29 countries in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, Asia and the USA.
The company has a primary listing on the Lusaka Stock Exchange, and secondary listings on the New York Stock Exchange, Paris Euronext (Euronext) and London Stock Exchanges under ISIN number ZM0000000037.
