Kwame Gyan, CEO of Atiwa Quarries Crushing Plant & Equipment, speaking to journalists during the outdooring ceremony

A $9-million stone quarry company was yesterday outdoored to commence operations in the country.

Atiwa Quarries Crushing Plant and Equipment which operates on a 77-acre land, is a solely-owned Ghanaian company, and is sited at Opeikuma, a suburb of Kasoa, in the Central Region.

Addressing journalists at the site yesterday, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mr Kwame Gyan, gave the assurance that the company will be mindful of the environment, and produce quality stone and chippers at affordable prices for Ghanaians.

“…We also produce all sizes of granite chippers which are of high quality.”

Mr Gyan went on to say that his company started operations on June 4, 2011, and can now boast of about 82 Ghanaian employees with about 90% of them hailing from the community.

According to him, the community stands to benefit enormously from the company. Some of the benefits, he said, will be seen in the areas of education and provision of potable water.

The CEO of Atiwa Quarries Crushing Plant and Equipment further said his outfit will be giving the community a monthly royalty to help in the growth and development of the area.

He also indicated that they have gone through all the necessary process and have been given all the legal backing to commence operations.

“And I can tell you that we have the biggest quarry system in the country at the moment,” Mr Gyan said.
