More Than 85% of Ghana's Ceramic Tiles Are Manufactured Locally – Lorry Li

The Managing Director for Keda Ghana Ceramics Ltd, Lorry Li says more than 85 percent of the ceramic tiles in the country are produced locally and revealed plans of making Ghana an industry hub for Ceramic tiles production in the continent.

He said, previously, Ghana importation of ceramic tiles from other countries was 100 percent but since Keda Ghana Ceramic Ltd was commissioned in 2015, the importation has now been reduced to less than 20 percent.

Speaking for the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC) ''Grow Ghana'' agenda, Lorry Li explains that the locally manufactured ceramic tiles have the quality to match up with international standards, since Keda, mother company in China is the second best world producer of ceramic tiles.

''The mother company of Keda, which is in China, is the manufacturer of ceramic tiles production line. It ranks number two in the world in terms of its operations,'' Lorry Li said.

He said the production line and equipment used are normally 20-30 percent higher than other ceramic tiles factories and all ceramic tiles produced locally are environmentally friendly. He added though Keda is still expanding they plan to increase its operation in the country.

''Keda is still expanding and will make Ghana its industrial hub for the whole of West Africa and probably Africa as a continent,'' he said.

Keda Ghana Ceramics Ltd was founded in Ghana and headquartered in China, the company produces high-quality ceramic tiles and other ceramic products such as sanitary ceramics. 

Keda sources its raw materials locally in the manufacturing of ceramic tiles and works towards lessening Ghana's dependency on foreign ceramic tile imports.

Lorry Li explains why Ghana is an attractive location for investors. He said Ghana has a stable political environment which is a good indicator for investors and advised forcing investors to exploit the numerous investment opportunities that exist in the country.
