Ghanaian firm to establish transmission equipment factory in Lagos
A Ghanian company plans to establish a wiring and transmission equipment factory in Lagos this month to improve power supply in the country, The Nation reports.
The Chief Operating Officer, Reroy Group, Roy Quartey Papafio, said during an energy forum in Lagos, that Nigeria was chosen because of its large market. He said the company would support contractors in the power distibution chain, the same way it did for contractors in Ghana. The plant at the onset, will create direct jobs for 100 persons and provide thousands of indirect jobs.
He said: “We are already doing business in Nigeria. We have clients in the country, but we are looking at a situation whereby we would operate fully in the country. We have done a market survey to know our clients and what they need. The aim is to satisfy the needs of our customers.’’
