From a humble beginning with just 100 workers, Zoomlion can now boast of a workforce of 70,000.

This was disclosed by the group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong at a thanks-giving service which was held over the weekend. According to Mr. Siaw Agyepong, God has been gracious to the JOSPONG group of companies.

He also thanked President Mills for his unflinching support to the private sector, stressing that without his support they could not have expanded and employed all the staff present.

The chief executive went on to express his heartfelt gratitude to all their stakeholders, especially the sector ministries and MMDAs, for their excellent collaboration and support.

Mr. Agyepong remarked that the year 2011 will go down as an unforgettable one in the annals of Zoomlion which also coincides with the company’s 5th anniversary.

The Group has generated over 98,000 jobs under various innovative collaborations with Governments and the private sector all over Africa. Indeed, our experience in China and beyond gives us the cause to believe that most trade and business cooperation is mainly focused on the Government sector with little collaboration with the private sector; which is indeed the engine of growth and job creation in Africa.

We have no doubt that most African private businesses would want to see an expanded cooperation in Africa that is geared towards strengthening the Private Sector; Private (African)-to-Private investor or venture, partnerships, Private Business Grants or special business loans from Government and similar types of business cooperation.

Jospong Group of Companies has initiated and successfully grown businesses in Ghana and across Africa. The secret of our success that we want to share with other potential partner international companies include being situated in a peaceful and stable political climate which boasts of a vibrant human resource and a government willing to pursue economic growth led by the private sector.
