Bosch tools up Appolonia City
Robert Bosch Ghana Ltd, a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, has joined the growing list of companies partnering with Appolonia City, the master-planned city in Greater Accra, through the placement of the Bosch Solution Box at the development.
Bosch, one of the world’s leading providers for power tools, power tool accessories and measuring tools, will roll out the Bosch Solution Box, a first of its kind in Ghana, on one-acre of land at Appolonia City, and will focus on supplying power tools and aftersales service to contractors at the 2,325-acre mixed-use urban development. The on-site aftersales service ensures a reduced downtime while tools are being serviced. The Bosch Power Tools team will also be on hand to provide continual training, user guidance for application specific jobs and demonstrations for all users.
Appolonia CEO Bright Owusu-Amofah welcomed the news. “Bosch is a leading global brand, and we are delighted that Appolonia City will benefit from the world-class products and services of Bosch,” he said.
“The construction activity that is occurring within Appolonia City and the surrounding area immediately attracted us to this partnership,” said Benjamin Ofori, Regional Sales Director for West & Central Africa of Robert Bosch Power Tools.
The company opened a branch office in Ghana in 2015, as part of decisive steps to expand its access to the West African market.
The Bosch Power Tools team will also work with the Appolonia City team in implementing a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative within the wider Appolonia community. A range of training programs, with the objective of growing the knowledge base of the artisans, will enhance livelihoods and opportunities for employment.
Rendeavour, the developer of Appolonia City, is investing over $250 million of infrastructure and amenities at the landmark project, which is re-defining the Kpone-Katamanso District of Accra. Appolonia City’s live, work and play concept is ideal for residential, commercial and industrial purposes. Companies that have acquired space at Appolonia City include Total Ghana Ltd, Ghana Home Loans, Golden Mainland Construction Company and Golden Pride International School.
