Kantanka vehicles are standard – Ghana Standard Authority

In the recent press conference organised by the Kantanka Automobile Co. it was announced that by the close of 2014 the company would begin with the commercialisation of Kantanka sports utility vehicles and pickups.

The company further displayed some of the vehicles that had successfully graduated through the various test runs and were ready for the market.

The press were also taken to the assembly plant and guided through the various stages involved in the car manufacturing process.

Over the years the company has been manually manufacturing series of vehicles from electric cars to vehicles that are started with gold watch.

This manual manufacturing process made it difficult for the company to produce the vehicles on commercial scale but the installation of the Kantanka Assembly Plant which is as sophisticated as any assembly plant in the world have paved the way for mass production to commence.

Speaking to the media, the company confirmed that it would begin with the manufacturing of 80 to 200 cars monthly and would increase the numbers to meet the growing demand.

It also came to light that the Ghana Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (formerly called Vehicle Examination & Licensing Division, a semi-autonomous public sector organization under the Ministry of Transportation established by Act 569 of 1999) as well as the Ghana Standard Authority have been visiting the manufacturing site of the company and have given them the green light.

The media also found out the Authority upholds that the previous Kantanka Vehicles that were manually manufactured were all up to standard. The issuance of certificates by the Authority to the company confirms the whole story.

The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) is a national Standards body established by the Standards Decree, 1967 (NLCD 199) which has been superseded by the Standards Decree, 1973 (NRCD 173). The Authority is also the custodian of the Weights and Measures Decree (NRCD 326, 1975). They are dedicated to the standardisation of goods and services in the country and carry out routine inspections to ensure that these standards are maintained.

  29. I am so impressed by the prospects of Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo. He is making an impact in the car manufacturing industry and sooner or later Ghana will be in the fore front in West Africa and Africa as a whole. I would however want to know how I can have the opportunity to test-drive one of these vehicles.

  30. Great mind lies in Ideal persons, this cars will certainly be my first cars. God Bless Dr Safo.

  32. I’m sooo happy that finally Ghana and for that Africa at large will now be using locally made cars.
    I’m soo proud of Kantanka.

  33. I suggest that , the government of Ghana should start to buy the Kantanka vehicles for his Ministers,MPs,DCEs, and everybody involved in Government . The reason is that, rich people in Ghana likes using cars that high government officials uses. This is the market plan .

  34. I am enthused about the landmark acheivementt of Apostle Kwadwo Safo and his team of engineers. They are not only making Ghana proud but the whole of Africa as well. Kudos to them. If there is a chance to test drive any of the vehicles I would be pleased to do so. I am yearning to drive any of the vehicles.
