ACCRA, A Brazilian manufacturing company, Canada Containers, says it will make Ghana the hub of its operations in the West Africa sub-region.
Announcing its presence in Ghana, the Company, which specializes in the production of differentiated product logistics for use across several industries through the transformation of containers, says it aims to expand its activities from Ghana to other countries in West Africa.
A representative of the company was a member of a delegation of Brazilian investors who visited Accra in August this year on a Trade and Investment Mission organized by the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Head of the International Division at Canada Containers, Wilson Mendonca Jr, said here Monday the company planned in the medium term to start manufacturing locally using raw materials as well as labour from Ghana thus adding value to the local economy.
Canada Containers will not only be exporting finished products from Brazil, but also manufacture locally in Ghana, he said, adding that Canada Containers would hold a two-day exhibition from Wednesday to showcase its manufacturing expertise.
Dubbed ‘ExpoSolutions,’ the exhibition will afford Canada Containers the opportunity to display and offer Ghanaians an interactive experience of their complete and personalized modular structure solutions.
Canada Container’s wide-ranging infrastructure products can be used by a multiplicity of industries and sectors which include Construction, Mining, Health, Education, Agribusiness, Commercial activities (Trading/Shops), Urban/Rural housing and also for the Hospitality sector.
