Accra// – Official distributor of Toyota vehicles in Ghana, Toyota Ghana Company Limited (TGCL), has relocated its head office from the Graphic Road in Accra to a newly-built facility on the Accra-Tema Motorway.
The siting of the new head office was strategically done to serve Toyota Ghana customers in both Accra and its adjoining city Tema, offering after-sales service and the sale of genuine Toyota parts.
Aside being the main administrative office of Toyota Ghana, the facility will also serve as the Motorway branch of the company, Managing Director of Toyota Ghana, Takuya Kajiura, said at the commissioning of the facility.
“This is a manifestation of Toyota Ghana’s bold expression of its customer-first philosophy. The long-term vision of TGCL is to offer customers the maximum experience in customer satisfaction,” Kajiura said. “To achieve this vision, we have decided to invest in infrastructure for network expansion.”
A portion of Toyota Ghana’s profits, according to Kajiura, would be used to undertake Corporate Social Responsibiltiy (CSR) activities in the areas of education, health, environment and road safety.
The facility has among other things, a 100-seater conference hall, an in-house clinic and a gym, a 300-car capacity parking space, office complex, premium showrooms, spare parts dealership, a solar system and a fully equipped training school.
In his keynote address, Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, commended Toyota Ghana for the the construction of the facility which is mostly powered by solar.
“The automotive industry is one of the strategic anchor industries that are being developed in Ghana to serve as the new pillars of growth for our economy to diversify away from cocoa, gold and other mineral resources,” Kyerematen said.
He added that: “The government’s vision is to transform Ghana into a major modern auto manufacturing hub in Africa.”
Toyota Ghana Company Limited started operation in Ghana in 1998 and is currently the largest automobile distributor in Ghana, with regards to unit sales.
The company has since sold more than 50,000 units of Toyota vehicles in the country.
