Dutch international heavy lift company Mammoet has opened a new office for the West African region in Accra, Ghana.
The new base is part of a plan to offer a wider range of the group’s specialist services in engineered heavy lifting and transport to the West African market, through more localised support and faster reaction times.
The official opening of the new office included a reception at the Dutch ambassador’s residence, hosted by the ambassador Ron Strikker.
The general manager of Mammoet West Africa, Harmen Tiddens said: “We have conducted business in West Africa for many decades, providing heavy lift and transport solutions for many long lasting and reputable clients. Ghana is centrally located in West Africa, and with its flourishing economy and welcoming culture, it’s only logical that this is where we have established our base for Mammoet West Africa. Combined with our presence in Nigeria, Mammoet has significantly increased its footprint in West Africa, and this move ensures we can serve our clients even better here.”
Martijn Kuipers, Mammoet managing director for Middle East and Africa added “We believe in the great economic future of West Africa and as such we are positioning for growth, not only for Mammoet but also for our customers in the region.”
