The Birth of Scipio

Scipio is the brainchild of a core group of entrepreneurs and technology experts busy in the field of producing armoured personnel carriers and heavy machinery for mining. In the mid of 2014, the core group saw a gap in specialized design sector for design and building of vehicles that could afford them the protection needed during heightened hostility in the conflict areas, which in turn led to Scipio being born in December 2014.

Scipio has gathered extensive knowledge and operational expertise across African continent and Asian markets and dedicated itself to the business of designing, engineering, and building the safest armoured personnel carriers in the world.
