Prefos Limited goes international

The General Manager of Prefos Limited, Mrs. Philemon Owusu Ansah, had disclosed that the company intended to extend its services to the West African Sub region.

She said it had already registered in Sierra Leone, The Gambia, Niger, Guinea and La Cote d’Ivoire. The General Manager further said Prefos Limited had, since 2020, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Three Brothers of Egypt to manufacture various electrical products such as cables, high tension materials, and security cameras to augment the local stock.

Prefos Limited, Building, Road, Civil and Electrical Engineering Contractors, headquartered in Kumasi, is one of the biggest electrical engineering companies in Ghana, and has been in operation for 32 years.

Mrs. Owusu Ansah disclosed these on Friday, when The Gambian Ambassador to South Africa, Her Excellency Fatoumata Jahumpa Ceesay, accompanied by a former Gambian Minister of State, Hon. Nyassi Musa Amul, visited Prefos’ ultra-modern state-of- the -art factory at Adako Jachie near Kumasi to acquaint themselves with the operations of the Ghanaian company.

The Prefos General Manager said the company, with a permanent staff of 150, had partnered the Government of Ghana to execute rural/urban electrification projects, and also built the capacity of the youth.

She said the creation of employment was the company’s priority, besides lighting and beautification for security.

Ambassador Fatoumata Jahumpa Ceesay, while addressing a durbar of Prefos workers, proposed a partnership of The Gambian government with Prefos Limited.

The Ambassador Plenipotentiary of about nine neighbouring countries noted that such a partnership would capacitise and equip the youth in The Gambia. She called for support for Prefos Limited to expand across Africa to enhance the integration of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

She said Prefos Limited would have to expand to West Africa, and the larger African Continent. She said the rest of Africa must benefit from the expertise of Prefos Limited.

The Ambassador, who eulogied the first President of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, for assisting in the training of over 600 Gambian professionals, announced that preparations were underway for The Gambian government and Prefos Limited to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in The Gambia to actualise the proposed partnership.

“The Gambia is ready for Prefos Limited to help train the youth in lighting the country,” she noted. H.E. Ceesay and Hon. Nyassi Musa Amul also inspected the solar site, the company’s industrial site at Baworo as part of feasibility studies for the partnership.

Nana Osei Kwadwo Boadu II, Otumfuo’s Mpomponsuohene, advised employees of the company to work hard and remain committed to sustain growth of the company to benefit more workers in the future.

Also present at durbar were Nana Osei Bosompem III, Chief of Adako Jachie, and Nana Afrakoma, Queenmother of Baworo.
