Nestlé started its operations in Ghana in 1957 with the trade of milk and chocolates. In 1968, it began local manufacturing and today employs 1813 people. Tema factory was inaugurated in 1971, with the production of IDEAL Milk and MILO. The factory has since expanded to produce CARNATION milk, CHOCOLIM, CHOCOMILO, CERELAC and NESCAFÉ 3-in 1.
Over a period of 3 years, Nestlé has invested CHF 38 million (equivalent to 125 million Ghana Cedis) in expansion capacities in the Tema Factory
Due to the expansion of this factory facility and larger capacity for raw materials, Nestle were in need of a mixture of doors within 2 additional facilities. There was a need for hygienic doors within their production area for their new Milk products, as well as GRP Sliding Doors for their conveyor belt areas.
Our Dortek doors met the needs and expectations of Nestle; their hygiene requirements were fulfilled through our hygienic hinged and sliding GRP doors and fire rated GRP doors.
