Mr. Philip Archer, the Managing Director of Gyata Cement stressed that the company wholly owned and managed by Ghanaians.
The company is aiming to produce three million metric tonnes of cement in a few years. Gyata Cement is currently selling at Ghc30.00 per bag — way lower than the existing brands on the market.
Endorsement of the company began with maverick NPP MP, Kennedy Agyapong when he said positive things about supporting Ghanaian businesses despite his differences with the owner, Ibrahim Mahama.
Social media has since gone berserk over the new brand and poured kind words onto the businessman who “is not celebrated enough.”
That’s my MD right there – Philip Archer

Congratulations to Ibrahim Mahama on #DzataCement. You believed in it, you worked at it! We must support our own to succeed. The fight is not among ourselves as Ghanaians but how we succeed in an ever-integrating Africa in an unforgiving competitive world of producers vs others. pic.twitter.com/mjFJe7HsYG
