Neoplan Ghana Ltd. Is No Longer In Business -All The Details Here

Posted by Osei Agyemang

In 1974, a vehicle organization Neoplan Ghana Ltd. was formally outdoored in Ghana to help in the nations transportation framework. It was beautiful to watch this organization produce transports for business purposes that surely helped the transportation sector in various manners. At the time, these Neoplan transports were everywhere throughout the nation that helped explorers move from one destination to the next in a truly agreeable way.

Their futuristic designs and imaginative transports were all around assembled, therefore everybody patronized their buses. As the first transport manufacturing plant in West Africa, other nations on the continent ranked high the services of Neoplan’s transports.

The organization was a joint endeavor between the Ghanaian Government and German’s Gottlob Auwaeter GmbH and Co. furthermore, the principle center was to produce Neoplan tropic transports and mentors for the nation especially Kumasi and Accra and the West Africa market. Neoplan Ghana Ltd. upgraded its transport structures with new thoughts and pattern setting ideas, therefore offering driving force to the entire transport industry.

Indeed, the transport manufacturing organization was the best incorporated transport maker on the West Coast of Africa. As I compose this piece, it has incorporated centres both in Kumasi and Accra that meets the absolute assistance need of clients in an expert and official way but tragically the organization has crumpled because of lack of assistance from over a significant time span governments of Ghana.

In the year 2001, the then President of Ghana, Mr. John Agyekum Kuffuor was the main chief to have bolstered this outfit (Neoplan Ghana Ltd.). Since his nonattendance, it has been back and forth with every new government that comes to power for support to the transport producing organization. The automobile mechanics have done everything right to pull in the consideration of every legislature that comes in for help, however it appears all endeavors have proven pointless.

Lamentably for Neoplan Ghana Ltd., lack of business contracts and repeating month to month losses incurred is the thing that has “killed” them. In the previous seven years, they have been running the organization themselves through numerous methods with no commitment from the government of Ghana. In this way, there is no alternative than to close down the organization.

This is a touchy issue to most Ghanaians in light of the fact that, loads of jobs have been lost. Also, people see no reason why the government of the day is by all accounts calm on this. This is one of the fine open doors for the government to inculcate this organization into their One District, One Dam Initiative which began some time in the past by the government. Likewise, it is an another possibility for them to help and even go too far in the red to do this to make greater openings for jobs for the jobless.

Unemployment has been a significant challenge for practically all governments that come into power. Along these lines, this ought to have been a fine “room” to enter. Well, let’s keep our fingers crossed as most likely, the government will rapidly intercede and turn things over for Neoplan Ghana Ltd.

The organization has been in presence for over four decades, and has manufactured more than 4,000 buses for the country, which has 55 percent greater part stake, to help the vehicle division.
