KEDA Ceramics Company Limited, a leading tile manufacturer in Ghana, has demonstrated its commitment to corporate social responsibility by presenting a cheque of GHC 20,000 to the Western Regional chapter of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) towards the refurbishment of the regional Press Centre in Takoradi.

The donation is in response to an appeal made by the GJA to renovate the dilapidated Press Centre. Dr David Yevugah, Human Resource Manager, and Mr David Wei, Commercial Manager, who presented the cheque on behalf of the company, expressed the company’s recognition of the important role that the media plays in the socio-economic development of the region and the country at large. They also stated that the donation is aimed at supporting a worthy cause and building on the cordial relationship that exists between the company and the association.

In his statement, Mr Desmond Cudjoe, Western Regional Chairman of the Association, commended KEDA for the kind gesture and pledged to use the money for the intended purpose. He further appealed to other institutions and individuals to support the Association in putting the Press Centre in good shape, which would be used for the training of journalists and holding of conferences, as well as offices for media houses that do not have offices in the Region.

KEDA Ghana Ceramics Company Limited (Twyford) was established in September 2016 through a joint venture between Sunda International Trading Company and Keda Clean Energy Ltd. The factory is located in the Shama District in the Western Region and employs over 4,000 staff, mostly indigenes. The company produces all kinds of floor and wall tiles, such as fully polished glazed tiles and abrasion-resistant tiles.

For the most part, KEDA has impacted positively on its area of operations and has established good partnerships with the local community. In 2020, the company exported 10,540,800 square meters of ceramics and accrued $34.8 million in foreign exchange for the country. This figure represents a significant increase from the 7,156,800 square meters of ceramics recorded in 2019, despite the fear of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In conclusion, KEDA Ceramics Company Limited has demonstrated its commitment to corporate social responsibility by supporting the refurbishment of the Western Regional Press Centre. The company’s pledge to impact positively on its area of operations and build good partnerships with the local community is commendable. The donation will go a long way in improving the working environment for journalists in the Western Region and provide opportunities for the training of journalists and holding of conferences.
