Kasapreko to open $30m bottling plant

Local alcoholic beverage producers, Kasapreko Company Limited (KCL), will by the close of the year commence the operation of its newly acquired automated bottling plant estimated at $30 million.

The new machine, which is expected to start operations in December, will boost the company’s production capacity in a bid to meet huge demands for its products on the local and international market.

Mr Kwabena Adjei, owner and founder of the company, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that, the new plant has a line of 40,000 plastic bottles per hour and 30,000 glasses per hour.

He said the decision to acquire the machine is to increase production capacity, which presently stands at 10,000 glasses per hour and 15,000 plastics per hour.

According to Mr Adjei, the company has made inroads into West and East Africa markets, hence the need to take steps to boost production to meet the demands.

“We also want to save our suppliers the trouble of queuing at our door steps just to buy our products.

“This is one of the main reasons why we took steps to boost our production to ensure constant supply to our customers as well meet international demands,” Mr Adjei stated.

He said his company is seeking to be the first Ghanaian firm to capture the entire African market and the acquisition of the automated bottling machine is part of preparations towards the target.

“We presently supply our products to Nigeria and South Africa. We have opened KCL in Tanzania and the only way to meet the demands of the market is to increase our production, hence the acquisition of the new machine.”

KCL was recently adjudged the Best Manufacturing Company in Ghana by the Chartered Institute of Marketing Ghana as well as the second most respected company in Ghana, whilst the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) was listed as the second most respected CEO in Ghana.
