Kantanka Automobile, a Ghana based automotive company that designs, manufactures, assembles and sells automobiles, was established in 1994 by Kwadwo Safo Kantanka and incorporated as a limited liability into the manufacturing of automotive components and their combination with other parts outsourced from component suppliers to form a complete built unit. In 1998, the first complete built unit (CBU) was manufactured using over 75% of local components, locally manufactured including the engine block. By 2006, the first SUV, the Onantefo, was manufactured.
Kantanka vehicles are assembled in Ghana from knock-down kits supplied by a Chinese firm, possibly Foday via Chongqing Big Science & Technology.
The Kantanka range of cars includes both saloon and four-wheel drive vehicles.
Kantanka is alleged to have manufactured military hardware such as armored personnel carriers, tanks, and helicopters. However these devices appear to use fireworks as their primary weapons system. They have also developed combat exoskeletons, which appear to function more as costume props than true weapons systems.
Kantanka launched an armored vehicle with rangefinder in the 2018 Annual Technology Show at Apostle Safo School of Arts and Sciences.
