In November 2015, the Founder and Leader of Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana (Christ Reformed Church), Apostle Dr. Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka together with his son and CEO of Kantanka Group of Companies, Kwadwo Safo Jnr. Commissioned the first ever Automobile Assembling Plant in Ghana.
Kantanka Automobile Company Limited is located at Gomoa-Mpota, off Winneba-Accra high way and has the capacity to produce between two to four cars a day with a limited number of workers. The Automobile Assembling Plant which is divided into five sections, Welding Line, Chemical Plant, Spraying Plant, General Assembly Plant and Testing Plant is the first ever of its kind in Ghana and something that Ghanaians should be proud of.
In November 2016, Kantanka Automobile Company Limited celebrated its one year anniversary in Apostle Safo Technology Centre, at Gomoa-Mpota. During the occasion, the General Manager of the company, Mr. Francis Kudoge stated that despite the challenges being confronted by the company, it is however doing well with respect to efficiency in its general operations. He further stated that, since their inauguration in 2015, they have recalled only three cars after sales which is no news to the automobile industry since most industry leaders also face such after sales challenges nevertheless efforts are being made to curtail such incidences.
Mr. Francis Kudoge also made known to oilcitytoday news crew during our visit to the company last month that they were very grateful to Ghanaians for the confidence and support they had in the Chairman of the company, Apostle Dr. Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka ever since he single handedly embarked on the technological journey to promote industrialization in the country. He further added that they have been privileged to have government institutions such as West African Examination Council (WAEC), Office of the President (Flagstaff House, now Jubilee House), National Pension Regulation Authority (NPRA), Ghana Police Headquarters, and others using the Kantanka vehicles.
He also stated that the company’s vehicles are on sale since November 2015 of its inauguration and that most Ghanaians are still not aware of it but also indicated that they were working very hard on their publicity. He added that the company from 2017 will no longer be producing its old models of the Kantanka Onantefo SUV (4X4) and the Kantanka Omama Pick-Up (4×2).
He finally told Oilctytoday that Kantanka Automobile Company Limited will officially unveil its new Kantanka Onantefo SUV and Kantanka Omama Pick-Up models early this year to Ghanaians and that they have special discounts on all their Kantanka vehicle models. He then wished all Ghanaians and Africans a prosperous Happy New Year.
