From its location on 8 fully built up acres of land in Ghana’s Industrial Port City of Tema, Tropical Cable & Conductor Limited (TCCL), incorporated in 1997, has made impressive progress.
TCCL has production capacity currently at 8,000 tonnes of Copper and Aluminium per annum. This phenomenal growth has been achieved by manufacturing world class quality conductors and cables for West Africa’s Energy, Real Estate, Construction and Mining sectors.
Tropical Cable and Conductor’s remarkable growth is embellished by several 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, and has continued to feature regularly on that 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. Again, TCCL was the first cable manufacturer in West Africa to achieve certification.
In 2015, TCCL became the first cable manufacturer in Ghana to commence compounding of its own insulation and sheathing materials.
TCCL’s excellent technical and marketing expertise have seen its market share increase steadily in the highly competitive market. As a result of superior understanding of customers’ needs, the company strategically commissioned new armouring lines in 2006 for the manufacture of Underground Power Cables. The company was the first manufacturer of Armoured cables in Ghana.
In 2010, TCCL launched the Tropical Student Support Initiative. This foundation provides scholarships to needy students admitted to undergraduate programs in the University of Ghana. There is a special emphasis on young women studying Science and Mathematics.
TCCL maintains procurement systems that aim at supporting indigenous small-scale businesses.
