Ribbon Cutting: Bosch at The WestPark – Open for Business

During the official groundbreaking event for the WestPark, Bosch Power Tools, part of Robert Bosch Ghana, a leading global supplier of technology and services, cut the ribbon to the Bosch Power Box at the WestPark.

Bosch’s Power Tool division is committed to empowering its users, including electricians, carpenters, welders and plumbers, with locally relevant solutions. Bosch seeks to train thousands of artisans at the WestPark, contributing to the quality and efficiency of workmanship in Ghana’s booming construction industry through onsite training at construction sites, strong after-sales service with quick repairs throughout the country and Bosch’s unique solutions box – offering artisans the right tools and guidance for the job at hand.

The ribbon was formally cut by Nana Kwamina Wienu II, the Chief of Yabiw and Benjamin Ofori, the Director for Bosch Power Tools, West & Central Africa. The Hon. Minister of Trade & Industry, executives from Robert Bosch GmbH, including Dr. Markus Thill, President Region Africa, and members of the Yabiw community, witnessed the occasion alongside representatives from over 20 global companies.

Bosch and three other preeminent German companies, DHL, Grohe and Knauf, along with American company DTRT and Stanbic Bank Ghana, have joined BlackIvy in the Takoradi Industrial Partnership, a consortium of companies committed to collaborating and leveraging their strengths to help build West Africa’s next industrial hub in Takoradi.

The Takoradi Industrial Partnership is poised to accelerate the transformation of Takoradi, Ghana’s third-largest city, which has benefitted from recent multi-billion-dollar investments in gas, power, port and rail infrastructure.  With its diverse consortium of industrial companies committed to the West African market, the Partnership is creating jobs, introducing world-leading technology and adding value to Ghana’s indigenous resources.

Collectively, the Partnership seeks to invest to build a commercial cluster big enough to attract a local supply chain and foster value addition.
