GN Electronics is all set to introduce its products to the Ghanaian market. The company which is a subsidiary of Groupe Nduom will on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 organise a full day open house/media event to announce to prospective customers to what they have on offer
The company will be displaying its Television Sets and Set Tops (decoders) at the event.
These products are assembled in Elmina in the Central Region and are retailed in the West African sub-region. The programme is being held at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra.
The National Communications Authority has certified three models of the company’s Set Top Boxes (STBs) as wholesome for the local market. They are the STBs-T2 Free to Air (FTA) model; T2 Conditional Access System (CAS) enabled and Combo S2/T2.
The National Communications Authority has also certified the GN Electronics SMART television models, which come in various sizes. GN Electronics aims to become the leader in the electronics assembly industry in the West African sub-Region and to become the supplier of choice.
The company is partnering with the best international OEM companies for products and knowledge transfer. GN Electronics was incorporated in 2015 and started operations in July of the same year when it completed the first unit of its first product line: a Set Top Box. This device, commonly referred to as decoder, is a critical element in the digital migration that is being undertaken by Ghana and several West African countries.
The company is building and developing a strong local industry with the West African market as its prime target. GN Electronics is a Free Zone company, and is engaging potential customers in Liberia, Togo, and other West African countries.
In Ghana, their products are available at Melcom stores, and GN Logistics located all over the country. Also, GN Electronics is partnering with GN Bank for payment options available to all GN Bank customers.
GN Electronics uses Ghanaian manpower, mainly young graduates from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology here in Ghana, and assemblers and operators from the community to underscore its total reliance on local content.
User guides on the boxes are in English, French, and Portuguese to meet the ECOWAS requirements, and Twi, Fante and Ga for the domestic market. The long term goal is to design products for the African market and manufacture them.
