Ghana’s domestic car manufacturing company, Kantanka Auto, has secured about 13,000 orders from West African countries.
The company says this move will help grow the local industry.
Kantanka Auto is a unit of Kantanka Group. Its first production models manufactured under its name were allowed on the road in 2016. Hence, the company has tagged millions for the project.

The CEO of Kantanka Automobile, Kwadwo Safo Jnr., revealed the orders last month on Starr Fm. He said so far the company had received over orders from three different countries in West Africa. He made this revelation on Starr FM’s “Time With The CEO” program.
According to Safo Jnr., this order has been the biggest ever since production. And he hopes the orders will continue to come in this way.
This may be indeed a giant step for the company.
On the other hand, the company’s website doesn’t provide any details on any of the countries that made the orders.
The Kantanka Auto company was founded by Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, (officially, Kantanka Automobile Company Limited). Apostle Safo is also the founder the Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana, a religious group.
The company was made a limited liability company back in 2001. What it does is research into the manufacturing of automotive components and their combination with other parts outsourced from component suppliers. This they use to build a complete manufactured vehicle.
Since its inception, the Kantanka Group has made a lot of wonderful innovations. From TVs that switch off with a simple hand clap to automobiles.
Kantanka vehicles are built in Ghana from complete knock down (CKD) kits outsourced from partnered companies. The outsourcing of vehicle parts is done through Chongqing Big Science & Technology.
