Mechanical Lloyd Company Limited, a leading automobile company in Ghana, recently opened a branch at Takoradi in the Western region.

Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, who officially opened the branch, commended Mechanical Lloyd for extending its presence to the Western Region and other parts of the country.

He particularly expressed delight that Mechanical Lloyd continued to provide quality products and services at competitive prices and contributed meaningfully to the welfare of communities in which it operates.

As part of measures to help prolong the lifespan of vehicles being sold by the company, the Takoradi branch, which will also serve customers from the Central Region, will have vehicle spare parts on offer.

The move is expected to help customers have easy access to spare parts.

Joe Hyde, Director, After Sales Manager of Mechanical Lloyd, mentioned that the company has over the years been the benchmark for many industry players in Ghana in terms of infrastructure, equipment and staff strength.

He noted that the company has also set the the standard in West Africa, adding that BMW selected Mechanical Lloyd as its regional training centre for West Africa.

“This basically means that all BMW organized training for its dealerships will be hosted by Mechanical Lloyd,” he added.

He revealed that the company has brought its full range of vehicle models to Takoradi for all individuals and corporate organizations, adding that the facility in Takoradi has a regular repair bay.

It would offer small to large-sized sedans and SUVs, 9-18 seater buses and robust Ford Ranger pick-ups, which could also be modified for light duty mining.
