For the second year in a row, Clemonic Company Limited – a leading Ghacem cement distributor from Kumasi, has won the overall top cement distributor award at the just-ended Ghana Cement (Ghacem) Customer Appreciation Night 2019, held to reward top cement distributors and direct customers.
Speaking after receiving the top award, Managing Director of Clemonic Company Limited, Clement Effah, urged Ghacem to fix all the technical issues and let the cement flow so distributors can flood the market with the best cement in Ghana.
Mr. Effah reiterated that “Ghacem remains the partner of choice and we pledge continuous partnership to lead the cement business in Ghana”.
Ehunabobrim Prah Agyensaim VI, Chairman for the Event and Ghacem Board Member, in his address to customers explained that Ghacem remains customer-centric and will continue to place its customers first in all dealings.
Nana Prah Agyensaim VI noted: “We will continue to seek impactful improvement actions as far as delivering customer excellence is concerned. Ghacem always recognises the contribution of customers in its journey, and we hope our partnership will yield greater growth in 2020”.
According to him, Ghacem continues to champion its longstanding corporate social responsibility in the name of Ghacem Cement Foundation – targetting needy educational and health institutions since its inception in 2002, with a yearly average of 30,000 bags donated for refurbishment and expansion.
The revered chief further admonished all participants at the event to ensure a peaceful election this year, as good citizens, and avoid taking part in any violent activity.
The Managing Director of Ghacem, Stefano Gallini, on his part stated: “Our challenges were many, but we surmounted them all. Increased competition and an overcapacity of about six million were high hurdles, but we jumped them without breaking a leg”.
In 2020, Mr. Gallini noted, Ghacem will play a key role in supplying quality cement to support construction of roads in the country, as government has declared the year a ‘year of roads’.
He noted that “We expect market growth and increased construction activities. We are expectant of what the year of roads as declared by the president will bring. We hope to play a key role in supplying our consistent quality cement to these project sites. To our customers, we say do not hesitate to share new project areas with us for a good business partnership at reasonable rates”.
The Managing Director further explained that ensuring a level playing field for all manufacturers of cement is a sure way to go; and added that Ghacem – a member of the second-best cement company in the world – is more than willing to take up the challenge. “We only ask for fair competition from all players.”
The Ghacem Customer Appreciation Night is an annual event held to honour loyal and outstanding Ghacem cement distributors and customers across the country.
Out of the over-150 distributors and 80 direct customers from across the country, 54 of them were awarded in categories such as Best Transporter, Most Loyal Distributor, and Best Sales Representative, among others.
Mississippi Top Ventures and Awellam Construction Ltd. came second and third respectively; with China Harbour Engineering Co. Gh. receiving the Top Direct Customer Award.
