Bosch, the leading global supplier of technology and services has marked another milestone in Ghana with the opening of a new larger office in its bid to meet the growing demand for its products.
Employing over 20 associates, the company continues to increase its business in the country and also provide significant value addition to the Ghanaian economy.
“We can now boast of almost 30 employees in Ghana and we have built a very strong distributor network across the country extending to about 20 other countries in West and Central Africa,” says Bosch Ghana Managing Director, Mr Emmanuel Agyei.
Bosch supports government’s agenda for industrial transformation through the provision of tools and services that will enhance the effectiveness of Ghanaian industries.
By maintaining our slogan “invented for life,” we aim to transform the lives, both professionals and local indigenes, through the provision of innovative and efficient products and services to enhance and support the industrial drive in Ghana.
Bosch has been present in Africa through an appointed network of dealers for more than 100 years. In support of the growth and development of Africa, Bosch established offices in several new locations on the continent in the recent past.
Two years ago, the company opened its sales, marketing and services subsidiary in Accra, Ghana.
In the construction sector, it has strengthened its alliance with Ghana’s construction industry through the establishment of what it calls the solution box.
Bosch has enjoyed many successes in the development of Ghana’s economy and the establishment of the power box at the Sokaban Wood village where carpenters have access to Bosch power tools and onsite training.
Officer in Charge of Power tools, Mr Benjamin Ofori, said “our tools are used by professional and artisan users such as carpenters, electricians and plumbers, who work in various construction fields.”
According to Mr Ofori, what Bosch seeks to do together with government is especially within the artisan’s space to ensure that “we are providing our tools and making them easily accessible to and providing training in line with government’s industrial transformation agenda.”
The first of its kind in Ghana, Bosch recently rolled out its innovation on one-acre land at Appolonia City. The partnership is focused on Bosch supplying power tools and after sales service to contractors at the 2,325-acre mixed-use urban development.
Additionally, now some 4,000 artisans are trained monthly, through the company’s partnership with the Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC).
The Centre specializes in the provision of vocational and technical training and churns out artisans and craftsmen.
The company has operations in all of its four business sectors in the country: Mobility Solutions, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods and Energy and Building Technology.
