Investor Testimonial- The Transparent and Efficient Process Made the Decision to Invest In Ghana Simpler- Agility Distribution Parks

Agility Distribution Parks is a world-class company investing and building capacity for Africa through warehouse parks creation.

Agility’s activities include Funding, developing and operating international standard warehouse parks providing warehouses for both multinational and local SME company’s eliminating their need to invest in expensive non-core assets.

Warehouses from 500m2 upwards, suitable for distribution, storage, processing and light manufacturing. Only 3 months deposit required for a standard unit. The company commenced operations in Ghana in 2016 and went through the following processes to establish offices in Ghana:

  • Feasibility study
  • Company formation
  • Land acquisition
  • Construction tenders
  • Phase 1 development completed and fully let
  • Phase 2 development completed and fully let
  • Phase 3&4 development under construction opening Q4 2108

When asked about the experience of setting up in Ghana, the company indicated that it was a transparent and efficient process that made the decision to invest in Ghana simpler.

“Ghana has a burgeoning economy and political stability. The process and execution of establishing a business in Ghana were clear and simple and we could identify immediate demand from customers for quality warehousing. We are expanding the project faster than budgeted, attracting new customers from both the local SME sector and multinationals. The project has created the essential warehouse infrastructure enabling companies to establish their regional base in Accra.”

From the first meeting on the project, the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre has been very supportive and central to the ease of doing business in Ghana.

Now that we are operational, the relationship remains close and GIPC actively utilizes the availability of warehouses that have been funded and developed by Agility in the Agility Warehouse Park in Tema as an additional way to attract new companies to set up operations in Ghana.

Ghana is a very attractive location for investment in West Africa driven by both the economic growth of Ghana and its ever-increasing role as a central hub within ECOWAS.
