Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), has ordered the closure of three businesses in the Ashanti Region for poor quality standard products.
The three companies are Xin An Safe Cement Ghana Ltd, located at Ejisu; Kumasi Cement Ghana Ltd, located at Offinso; and Uniceme Cement Ghana Ltd, located at Bekwai, all in the Ashanti Region.
The Ghana Standards Authority decided the use of inferior materials by the companies in their cement production.
“What we are doing is ensuring fair trade and stability in the manufacturing space. We stand a chance of making this country a hub for manufacturing for the global market and trust is key for any major player who wants to invest in the country,” the GSA Director-General, Prof. Alex Duodoo said.
“Because of this, you are instructed to cease operation/production henceforth until the use of the approved raw materials,” a letter from the GSA to Xin An Safe Cement Ltd. stated
