Equipped with state of the art machines, the Michelin Tyre Centre is expected to provide services including tyre changing, wheel balancing, puncture repairs, tyre rotation and wheel alignment.
It would also serve clients with automotive parts, construction equipment, Michelin car tyres and offer advice and recommendations to address the tyre needs of prospective customers.
Inaugurating the facility, the Managing Director of C. Woermann Ghana Limited, Mr. Carsten Duwer said, the centre would offer expertise in tyre service to reduce the high rate of road fatalities in the country.
“Considering that a car tyre is the only connection between the driver and the road, we need to give special attention to our tyres to be safe on the road”, he stated.
He cautioned drivers against wayside mechanics who often lack the know how to handle tyres effectively resulting in unexpected accidents.
“People feel reluctant to patronise first class services like ours because they assume it is expensive but it is important we look at the quality of product we are buying and the service being rendered”.
“The better product or service we are receiving, the more cost effective it will be at the end of the day”, he added.
He also urged government to address the challenges in the power and business sector to allow industries to thrive in the country.
Mr. Kwesi Asafo-Adjei, the Executive Secretary of Ghana-German Economic Association (GGEA) entreated the public to patronise the centre to reduce the spate of car accident carnages on the road.
He called for stringent measures to promote trade links between Ghana and Germany to boost both economies.
