The Kantanka Automobile Company Ltd will officially commissioned the commercial car production units come 25th November, 2015.
His Excellency John Dramani Mahama is expected to commissioned the company’s Automobile Manufacturing Plant at Gomoa Mpota, Winneba in the Central.
This was contained in a statement signed by Kwadwo Safo Jr. son of the founder of the Automibile Company.
“Our company is ready to commence commercial production, sales and servicing of its cars, the ‘KANTANKA CARS’.”
The statement said, after years of research and tests, the company and its partners are determined to prove that strong, robust, durable and reliable automobiles can be produced in Africa.
“[We] will ensure that Ghana, Africa and the world at large have access to our indigenous brand of vehicles made with extreme caution and attention to detail,” Kwadwo Safo Jr. said.
He indicated that, the proudly Ghanaian Kantanka brand “is commencing the next step in its quest to achieve our vision, which is to see Ghana and Africa participating in the global automotive industry as a manufacturer rather than consumer and after-sales-service provider.”
The commissioning of the plant will be followed by the launching of the company’s first three flagship Kantanka Models - Kantanka Onantefuo (SUV), Kantanka Omama (Pickup), and Kantanka K71 (Mini SUV).
The launch is scheduled for Saturday, November 28, 2015, at the Accra International Conference Centre.
According to Kwadwo Safo Jr. all the Kantanka vehicles are are fitted with modern gadgets and built to guarantee the safety and satisfaction of consumers in the lower and middle-income brackets.
Kantanka Car is an electric car manufacturing company founded by Kwadwo Safo located in Kumasi metropolis, the capital of Ashanti.
Apostle Kwadwo Safo began this project long ago but most of the cars produced at that time were for mere exhibition until May 2014 when his center was able to build an assembly plant in the Central Region.
