These established enterprises have been around for generations, the oldest being Paul Ries & Sons, founded in 1865. Their operations are wide-ranging from coffee production, automotive and engineering endeavors, to heavy machinery for construction, agriculture and power systems. Whilst their areas of expertise and operation may differ, they all represent the NEFC Group’s values and commitment to quality and fairness.

Paul Ries & Sons

Paul Ries & Sons started its operations in Aden, Yemen in 1865 and expanded operations to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1885, primarily exporting Ethiopian coffee, animal hides and beeswax.

Under the umbrella of NEFC, Paul Ries & Sons was restructured into automotive, heavy machinery and power generator divisions, whilst remaining true to their roots with a division dedicated to coffee export. Paul Ries & Sons remains an active producer and exporter of Ethiopian coffee and is recognised as one of the founding members of the Ethiopian Coffee Exporters Association.

The company operates in various branches across Addis Ababa, Mekele, Awassa, Bahir Dar and Jimma.
