A new branch of truck manufacturing company, Zonda Tech Ghana, situated at Dzorwulu in Accra, has been inaugurated and opened by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Alan Kyerematen.
The new branch adds to the company’s already existing branches in Tamale, Kumasi, Buduburam, Takoradi and Nsawam with spare parts shops in Madina, Kasoa and Amasaman.
The truck manufacturing company is a beneficiary of government’s One District One Factory policy initiative.
Opening the facility, Mr Kyerematen said: “Zonda Tec Ghana has invested more than $10 million in the construction of its assembly plant as well as training schools for artisans in Tema under the 1D1F programme”.
According to him, “Zonda Tec has positioned itself to become a leading assembler and supplier of trucks including Sinotruk Howo Tipper Trucks, Liugong Excavators and Payloaders, Shantui Payloaders, Bull Dozers, Graders/Rollers/Backhoes, Forland Light Duty Trucks, Zonda Tricycles, Fiat Beds, Low Beds and Farm Tractors”.
“Zonda Tec is supporting artisans with technology transfer to build their capacities to assemble high-quality trucks for both the domestic and foreign markets.”
“In promoting the 1D1F initiative, the government is seeking to address the challenge of severe poverty and underdevelopment among peri-urban and rural communities, by attracting private sector investments into the development activities of these communities,” he added.
