Kasapreko Company Limited (KCL) is to increase its production capacity to 40,000 bottles per hour from the current 15,000 bottles per hour.
The rise in the company’s production capacity is to be made possible by a US$30 million modern bottling machine currently under installation at its head office in Accra.
The Managing Director of KCL, Mr Kwabena Adjei, said in an interview that the completion of the project would position the company to capture the international market with its products.
Explaining the rationale behind the introduction of the modern equipment, Mr Adjei said the company’s current capacity was to unable it to meet the increasing demand of its customers across the continent.
Additionally, he said, it was the company’s vision to move from just a Ghanaian company to a multinational one.
The Kasapreko Company, which brews alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, was adjudged the Most Respected Company in the manufacturing sector by the Ghana Club 100 for 2011.
The MD added that from a crude way of distillation some 20 years ago with just four staff, Kasapreko had managed to withstand challenges to become a leading company in alcoholic beverage distillation and stated that effective dreams were what had brought them that far.
The General Manager in charge of Human Resource and Administration, Mrs Letitia Asiedu-Attafuah, said the company was proud of its staff adding that “they always strive for a step beyond excellence.”
