Accra, Jan. 22, GNA - Clemonic Company Limited, a leading cement distributor from Kumasi, has emerged the overall top distributor for 2018 at the just ended Ghana Cement’s (Ghacem) Customer Appreciation Night held to reward top cement distributors and customers.
This is the first time Clemonic beat other top distributors after holding the second top distributor position for two consecutive years.
Speaking after receiving the award, Mr Clement Effah, Managing Director of Clemonic Company Limited, said “it has not been easy to come this far. As a husband, father and businessman, I have been compelled most of the time to leave the family behind to chase after my dream”.
Mr Effah said after many years of working with Ghacem, he has no doubt that “Ghacem remains the partner of choice and we pledge our continuous partnership to lead the cement business in Ghana.”
Mr Morten Gade, the Managing Director of Ghacem, said Ghacem remains the nation builder and by far has the biggest market with over 350 distributors and customers.
He said Ghacem seeks to deliver cement products to any part of the country at a competitive price through the use of “our own transport, professional transporters and distributors own transport.”
Mr Gade said this was to ensure that every distributor had his or her fair share of the product.
Moving forward, the Managing Director said Ghacem would roll out new strategies to build stronger partnerships with its distributors and customers this year.
Nana Ehunabobrim Prah Agyensaim VI, a Board Member and Chairman for the event, said Ghacem has so far contributed significantly to the development of the country through the Ghacem Cement Foundation.
He said the Foundation has given cement to various organisations since its inception valued at over GH¢13million and “we will continue to support needy organisations to build Ghana.”
The Ghacem Customer Appreciation Night is an annual event held to honour loyal and outstanding Ghacem cement distributors and customers across the country.
Out of the over 250 distributors and customers from across the country, 64 of them were awarded with various categories such as Best Transporter Awards, Most Loyal Distributor, and Most Promising Distributor among others.
Jafab Global Integrity and Mississippi Top Ventures came second and third respectively with Munimil taking two awards – Most Improved Distributor Award and Regional Sales and Depots award.
