ZOOMLION celebrates 10 years of Excellence in Waste Management

Zoomlion, a waste management company and its sister companies on Tuesday organised its annual Praise and Thanksgiving Service to mark 10 years of excellence in managing waste in Ghana and other African countries.

It was on the theme: “Oh Lord how manifold are your works.”

The Company, which was formed by Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, Executive Chairman of Jospong Group in 2006, with a few staff now has more than 85,000 workers under various forms of Public Private Partnerships.

Zoomlion operates in Togo, Angola, Zambia, Equatorial Guinea and Liberia, whilst negotiations are far advanced to do business in countries like Sierra Leone and Southern Sudan.

Dr Agyepong revolutionalised waste management in Ghana and Africa by implementing the use of tricycles in China to collect rubbish.

Zoomlion started in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region and the uniqueness of the waste collectors dressed in blue and orange attracted the attention of Ghanaians and the Government, giving birth to the Waste and Sanitation Module of the then National Youth Employment Programme.

The company offered janitorial and environmental sanitation services during the African Cup of Nations in Ghana in 2008 and the African Cup of Nations in Luanda, Angola on November 11, 2010.

Dr Lawrence Tetteh, Founder/ President of the UK based Worldwide Miracle Outreach, who preached on the theme: “The power of grace,” said Ghanaians should expect the grace of God to bring out the unlikely candidate to emerge winner in the Presidential election on December 7.

He said President John Dramani Mahama woke up as a Vice President and following the death of the late President John Evans Atta Mills, whilst the late Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Flight Flt Jerry John Rawlings were imprisoned before they became heads of state.

Dr Tetteh, also an Economists said people like former President Mills and John Agyekum Kufuor were least expected to win the mandate of the people, but it came to pass.

He said grace was capable of turning people viewed as social outcasts to become great people since the phenomenon had no colour, race or creed.

“People need machines to extract urine from them but we should thank God we can do so unaided.  Grace can provide what parents didn’t do for their children, whilst they were alive. Grace has no limits,” he said.

Dr Agyepong told the Ghana News Agency that God had been faithful to his company for the past 10 years leading to the establishment of a number of subsidiary waste management companies both at home and abroad.

“God has been great to me,” he said.
