The Managing Director of Steel products manufacturer, Roofings and Steel Ghana Limited, has called on Ghanaians to support the local hardware manufacturing industry by cutting down import to boost the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Speaking to Citi Business News during a media tour of the company’s manufacturing plant at Tsopoli in the Ningo Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region, Mr. Rohit Raj indicated that the company is committed to partnering all stakeholders to make Ghana a steel manufacturing hub in the West African sub-region.
He said the company, which is a subsidiary of Fabrimetal Ghana Limited, has invested in state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to provide the Ghanaian market with steel products of international quality.
Mr. Raj said the the company has made significant strides in the industry in less than two years with a over 25% market share since it commenced production in Ghana.
“We manufacture a wide range of steel products which meet international quality standards and contribute significantly to Ghana’s economy by reducing importation from overseas. Our manufactured products are import substitutes which reduce the country’s dependency on foreign suppliers and impact the economy positively,” he noted.
