The Group CEO and MD of GOIL Company Limited, Mr. Kwame Osei Prempeh, has appealed to Ghanaians that they see GOIL as their own and invest in it for positive future returns.
Speaking at the commissioning of an ultra-modern Zonal Office at Kpone near Tema, Mr. Osei Prempeh said critical investments made in Bitumen production and Gas, as well as the modernisation and expansion of its infrastructure, will yield enough dividends and offer multiple value for shareholders.
The Zonal Office complex will serve the company’s operations in the Tema business enclave of Ashaiman, Kpone, Somanya districts, Volta and Oti Regions.
The office complex is fitted with aluminum cladding and curtain walls, with offices for all departments, and equipped with other facilities including a canteen and kitchen as well as cubicles for both a bank and customer interaction. The office project was supervised by GOIL’s own consultants and Engineers.
Mr. Prempeh said the company is on course to modernise its infrastructure to be in tune with its expansion drive. This, he said, has involved upgrading the company’s service stations, improvement in customer service and ensuring product quality and quantity. He is hopeful that the new Zonal Offices will go a long way to facilitate smooth business transactions and boost the productivity and morale of staff.
The Board Chairman, Mr. Kwamena Bartels, said opening the office is in response, in part, to the increasing growth in business and expansion of Tema Port, which prompted the company to prepare adequately and capitalise on the opportunities. He noted GOIL is positive about the company’s future and is determined to position itself to capitalise on new opportunities as the economy rebounds from effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Nii Tei Kojo Amanqwah Sune I, Gbetsele Mantse, expressed gratitude to GOIL for establishing good relationship with traditional authorities in the communities where they operate. He assured the company that he will lead the charge to convince Ghanaians to invest in the company.
There were solidarity messages by the Managing Director of GCB Bank, Mr. Kofi Adomako, and the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers, COPEC.
