Global power management company, Eaton International Industries, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Intu-gROUP, a wholly owned Ghanaian company, with interest in Oil & Gas, Mining Logistics, Information Technology, Finance and Real Estate.

This deal enables Intu-gROUP warehouse and market Eaton products, delivering business process improvements and solutions at competitive prices to its customers.

In Africa, the company focuses on the creation of customised solutions to meet customers’ specific power management needs.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Shane Kilfoil, Managing Director for Africa – Eaton Electrical Sector said Eaton will continue to build a more energy efficient West Africa through partnership with local agencies and companies.

“The partnership with Intu-gROUP will enable Eaton to provide advanced power management technologies to enable businesses to do more with less energy in an emerging market like Ghana,” said Kilfoil. “Eaton is therefore delighted that this signing ceremony will further bring Eaton closer to its customers in Ghana and the West Africa region.”

“Our knowledge of the Ghanaian market added to decades of providing customised services to our partners, positions INTU-gROUP as the go-to company, in this partnership with global energy giant, Eaton Industries,” said Bryan Acheampong, INTU-gROUP Chief Executive Officer.

“This partnership will no doubt catalyse sustainable growth in Ghana’s energy sector; providing individuals and businesses with sustainable and reliable energy source,” he added.

As Eaton continues to explore veritable avenues to serve the needs of its customers in Ghana, Eaton is committed to building business relationships across West Africa region, providing energy-efficient solutions that help its customers effectively manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power more efficiently, sustainably and safely.

Shane Kilfoil announced that Eaton will be leveraging its expertise and capabilities in Africa through its manufacturing facilities in South Africa, Morocco and Tunisia, its extensive distributor network and a dedicated team of 900 employees across the region to support the US Government’s Power Africa initiative in Ghana, Liberia, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia.

In February, the Eaton West Africa Technology Day held in Lagos, Nigeria representing another key milestone in Eaton’s 78-year history of operating in Africa.

Technology Day provided the platform to raise market awareness for the company’s extensive power management capabilities.
