Organised by Xodus Communications in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and Ministry of Business Development, the event celebrates companies that have played a defining role in moving the industry forward, and equally identifies projects and individual achievements which have enabled manufacturers to set themselves apart from their competitors and produced clear and compelling value, return on investment, and other relevant results.
Events Director of the Ghana Manufacturing Awards, Richard Abbey Jnr., noted that the event is an annual prestigious ceremony to celebrate the very best in the industry from all aspects of manufacturing, stewardship, health and safety, corporate social responsibility, engineering, innovation and technology.
