From its beginnings in 1997 Tropical Cable and Conductor Ltd. has made impressive progress. We have grown our production capacity to over 5,000 tonnes of Aluminium and Copper annually. This phenomenal growth has been achieved by manufacturing world class quality conductors and cables for West Africa’s energy sector.
Tropical Cable and Conductor’s remarkable growth is embellished by a number of firsts.
On incorporation in 1997, it became the first wholly Ghanaian owned manufacturer in this technologically challenging area.
In 2003, the company was the first cable manufacturing company to be listed in the prestigious Ghana Club 100 (a listing of Ghana’s top 100 companies). TCCL has continued to feature regularly on the list.
In 2004, the quest for excellence in cable manufacturing was further enhanced with the certification of the quality management system to the internationally acclaimed ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems Certification. Tropical Cable and Conductor Ltd. was the first cable manufacturer in West Africa to achieve the certification. Over the years we maintained the certification, and in 2016 we achieved re-certification of our quality management system to the latest edition of ISO 9001: 2015 quality management system standard. Again, we were the first cable manufacturer in West Africa and the first manufacturing company in Ghana to attain it.
TCCL’s excellent technical and marketing expertise have seen it’s market share increase steadily in the highly competitive market. As a result of superior understanding of customers’ needs the company strategically commissioned new armouring line in 2006 for the manufacture of underground power cables. The company was the first manufacturer of armoured cables in Ghana.
From our very beginning, we have committed significant resources to the aid of the under privileged in our society. We have offered financial assistance to medical students to study abroad, donated electric cables to institutions such as the Ghana Police and various schools, equipped classrooms in deprived communities, etc.
The Ho Rehabilitation Centre receives regular assistance from Tropical Cable and Conductor Ltd. We maintain procurement systems that aim at supporting indigenous small scale businesses.
In 2010, TCCL launched the Tropical Saint Anthony Foundation which is now Tropical Students Support Initiative (TSSI). This foundation provides scholarships to needy students admitted to undergraduate programs in the University of Ghana. There is a special emphasis on young ladies studying Science and Mathematics.
In 2011, we increased our manufacturing capacity with expanded product range by investing in the construction of an ultra-modern production hall with the latest German made machinery. The equipment was commissioned in 2012 and successfully been running significantly increasing our production capacity both in tonnage and product range.
To improve and enhance our packaging facilities the company acquired new ultra-modern packaging line in 2013.
In 2015, TCCL became the first cable manufacturer in Ghana to commence compounding of its own insulation and sheathing materials. This has improved the competitiveness of the company.
In the next decade we intend to increase our efforts and consolidate our vision of becoming an African Industrial Giant in cable and conductor manufacture.
