Mantrac Ghana to build $20m centre for oil, mining clients
Mantrac Ghana Limited will invest over $20 million into the construction of a new Engine Rebuild Centre near Takoradi to serve the oil and Gas and Mining clients, Mr Emad Adeeb, Managing Director, said on Monday.
Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the Ghana Oil and Gas Summit, Mr Adeeb said Mantrac would in the next four years enhance its infrastructure in order to offer better services to customers.
“The 0.11 square kilometer workshop is expected to be completed by 2014 and will complement the groups facility already established in Port Harcourt, Nigeria,” he said.
He said the company’s experience, as the official Caterpillar dealer in oil producing countries, had given the group expertise in the provision and maintenance of energy industry equipment.
Mr Adeeb described the project as a landmark one that would support and complement the leading brand of Olympian and Cat power generating sets built to serve clients in the oil and gas market.
Commenting on Mantrac Ghana’s future plans, Mr Daniel Pabby, Head of Marketing and Strategic Planning, said apart from the office in Accra, there are additional offices in Tarkwa and Takoradi, the hub of the Oil and Gas industry.
“With decades of experience in power solutions for the oil and gas industry, we are backed by strong technical expertise and a deep understanding of local markets; we are able to provide our customers with unparalleled product support”, said Mr Pabby.
Mantrac, he said, had a global promise to deliver local solution in the Mining, Construction, Material Handling and Power systems business in Ghana.
Mantrac is the sole authorized dealer for Caterpillar products in Ghana.
