FLSmidth opens office in Ghana

FLSmidth is strengthening its Africa footprint with the opening of a new office in Accra, the capital of Ghana. The new presence in Accra will provide a hub for regional operations, as there is already a large installed base not just in Ghana but in other neighbouring countries including Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Mali and Guinea.

“Ghana is West Africa’s biggest and fastest growing economy with a diverse and rich resource base. There are positive signs of recovery in the minerals sector in West Africa, especially in the gold mining segment. We want to build our own in-house resources in this region, and fine tune our service and support activities to add more value to our customers’ operations,” states Deon de Kock, Vice President in FLSmidth Sub-Saharan Africa. The Accra office will be staffed by Ghanaian employees: “We believe that local skills, experience and expertise are vital to ensure a good understanding of customers and local conditions, and to provide optimal service levels,” explains De Kock. Joseph Appiah Kubi has been appointed general manager of the new Ghana office that will also be a venue for product and process training for customers. The office is fully operational since September 2017.
