Kwadwo Safo Jnr, CEO of Kantanka Automobile, showed off his ‘Kantanka Mensah’ at the Starrfm’s maiden program ‘Time With The CEO’ last month and revealed that the company has so far received over 13,000 orders from three different African countries in West Africa.
According to him, this has been the highest order since production hoping it will follow the same in the subsequent.
However, an article about the orders on the company's website fails to provide further details on the countries that made the orders.
Kantanka Automobile Company Limited is founded by Apostle Dr Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, the Founder and Leader of Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana.
The company was later incorporated as a limited liability company in 2001 with the main objective to research into the manufacturing of automotive components and their combination with other parts outsourced from component suppliers to form a completely built unit.
Kantanka vehicles are assembled in Ghana from CKD (Complete Knock Down) kits supplied by partnered firms, through Chongqing Big Science & Technology.
