Lighting up Ghana: More than 25 Years of Excellence

Prefos Limited is the leading Electrical and Civil Engineering Company in Ghana. Incorporated on the 9th of January 1991with only ten employees, Prefos Limited has become one of the largest electrical engineering companies in Ghana, employing over 150 permanent and non-permanent staff made up of electrical engineers, architects, electrical foremen and supervisors, technicians, quantity surveyors, site foremen, electrical and administrative personnel, secretaries and accountants across the country.
Spurred on by the vision to become the most innovative and competitive electrical engineering company in Ghana and the West African sub-region, Prefos has played a significant role in Ghana's rural/urban electrification drive for 24 years. We have also partnered with the government of Ghana through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative to deliver on key projects in various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs).
That Prefos Limited is today a household name associated with quality service in Ghana is by no mean achievement. Our company is dedicated to lighting up the streets of Ghana to keep them beautiful and safe. We also seek to promote commercial activity through the installation of street lighting technology and applications. Our company is also a major supplier and distributor of general electrical appliances such as transformers, cables, fuses, arrestors, painted steel and treated wooden poles. Furthermore, we undertake general building and construction works periodically.
Indeed, our capacity for quality work and timely project delivery has earned our company some high profile clientele both within the public and private sectors. They include the Ministry of Petroleum, the Ministry of Power, Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, the Environmental Protection Agency, Volta River Authority, Ghana Airports Company Limited, Electricity Company of Ghana, among others.

STRATEGIC INVESTMENT

Our quest to become a major supplier of street lighting technology in Ghana and the West African market culminated in the construction of an ultra-modern factory with state-of-the-art facilities at Adako-Jachie near Ejisu in the Ashanti Region for assembling imported street light components for distribution. Facilities in the factory include a modern street lamp assembling line, a testing laboratory and a show room.

Again, as part of efforts to train and equip the youth to carry out post-installation maintenance and servicing of street lights in their communities, the company has established the Prefos Electrical Training College (PETC) in Kumasi. The facility, which has a hostel accommodation of 50 rooms, will provide residential facilitates for trainees. It is expected to create over 2500 jobs for youths from the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) within the next few years, thus helping to address unemployment problems particularly among the rural youth.
