The Journey of D.A.T.E.S LTD, fully known as Dansoman Allied Technical Engineering Services Limited, began some 30 years ago on a not so small piece of land with so many mango trees just around the Exhibition roundabout. It wasn’t a mango farm as some people might have thought, however, a seed was planted by its owner very early in the 80s and that was the seed of Automobile Engineering excellence and innovation.
Mr Harry Albert Sackey Jnr was a curious innovator and businessman who had trained himself from his early teens to become one of the most renowned names in the Automobile industry in Ghana. Many know him to be the pioneer of AutoGas in the late 80s and also Wynns Injection Purging, which is the flagship service of the company to date.
His skill led him to great heights as he came into contact with the great and the small alike who all had untold admiration for him because of how fairly he treated everyone. He never showed favouritism no matter how rickety your vehicle was.
Thirty years later, after all the ups and downs and after all the experience and heights attained by the company, Mr Harry Albert Sackey Jnr retired from active service and handed over the reins of the company to his son, Harry Kweku Krampa Sackey.
With all his wealth of experience and years in the industry, Mr Harry Albert Sackey Jnr., upon reflection has deemed it necessary to help foster growth in the Dansoman Community by bringing businesses together to share their experiences and their journeys and also to collaborate with each other and make contacts and most importantly to showcase their products for the entire community to see and feel. This he sees as part of D.A.T.E.S LTD’s corporate social responsibility.
Mrs Mary Abena Dickson is the Chief organiser and has done a wonderful job of coordinating and making the maiden edition possible.
Dubbed the ‘Dansoman Community Fair’, which is the maiden edition of many more to come, businesses participating will come from various industries not limited to and including automobile, food, clothing, shoes, accessories. All the businesses are located in and around Dansoman and we would like all and sundry to come and visit and support the program.
