OVERLAND-TANBERG, a Silicon Valley based global technology company that develops and manufactures hybrid cloud IT infrastructure and data protection solutions, has publically announced its readiness and commitment to start operations in Ghana

The
CEO and chairman of the company, Eric Kelly, made the announcement at the
closing bell-ringing ceremony at the NASDAQ MarketSite at Times Square, New
York on February 11, 2020.

Addressing
the executives who had gathered for the ceremony, Mr Kelly shared his company’s
strategy to expand its operations to Africa, particularly, Ghana. “Over the
last 40 years, we have done business in over 90 countries, and it is now time
to expand, this time to Ghana,” he stated.
Mr. Kelly also commended Ghana’s Ambassador, Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, who was a
special guest of honor, for his role in making Overland-Tanberg’s plan to
operate in Ghana possible.

“A
few months ago, the ambassador met with us and sold Ghana to us and encouraged
our company to set up operations in Ghana. We have worked at a neck breaking
speed to make this possible in just about three months. And I’m happy to say
that we have acquired an office space in Ghana and ready to start operations
soon.”

Last
year, the Ambassador of Ghana to the United States met with senior executives of
high profile tech companies in San Francisco including eBay, SAP,
Overland-Tanberg, Pay Pal, Bosch,  etc and encouraged them to consider
extending their operations to Ghana.

Overland-Tanberg
was founded in 1979 and provides excellent data storage and archive solutions
that are reliable and mindfully built for the Enterprise and SMB. This year,
the company is celebrating 40 years as a global technology leader protecting
the digital assets of businesses in about 90 countries.
