Zoomlion, has over the years devised innovative ways of providing environmental health and sanitation services, which have created employment and also brought development to the people of Ghana.
The company, has given birth to other subsidiaries, including the Accra composite and Recycling plant, the waste Landfill Management Services, Zoom Domestic Services, the Waste Management University and many others.
It is now said that, apart from government, Zoomlion, is the second largest employer in the country with staff strength of over 250,000.
The company, has engaged in other activities, like cleaning the stadia at Angola during the 2010 African cup of Nations and have played major role in ensuring that the stadia and other training pitches in the country, were always clean during the 2008 African cup of Nations.
This was contained in a welcome address delivered by Mrs. Esther Abayeta, the Acting General Manager of zoomlion in the Brong Ahafo region, during the official launch of the 10th Anniversary celebration of the company in sunyani.
Mrs. Abayeta, noted that since the beginning of Zoomlion Ghana Limited operations in the country, the role played by the company in Ghana and Brong Ahafo, cannot be over looked.
She said, the Brong Ahafo regional capital, admired by both Ghanaians and foreigners led to its award in 2007 as the cleanest city in the country.
Zoomlion Ghana, will continue the fight against insanitary environment, until there is total eradication of malaria and cholera in Ghana and Africa.
As part of activities to mark the occasion, the company organised health walk, lectures, exhibitions, and donations to selected hospitals, quiz competition, fun games, award and thanksgiving services.
