Patrick Atanga Avoa, a 32-year-old mechanical engineer graduate from Yikene, a suburb of Bolgatanga municipality of the Upper East Region is calling on the public to support him expand the incubator manufacturing business in the region.

Mr Atanga graduated from the Kumasi Polytechnic, now Kumasi Technical University, in 2017 and is currently a trainee under the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO).

He said the decision to start manufacturing incubators after graduation in furtherance of encouragement and support he received from a lecturer who supervised his group’s project work. The group work focused on manufacturing incubators for egg hatching.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with A1News’ David Azure, Mr Avoa said many of the materials he uses in building his incubators are not in the country and can only be acquired from other countries through importation.

According to him, he doesn’t have the financial muscles to be importing these materials for effective production hence he needs support from the public and relevant organizations to produce more.

“All these materials, apart from the wood you are seeing, everything has been imported. So it makes it difficult for me to produce many of them, so I think if I get anybody or an organization to be helping me with the materials, I will be very grateful. The fact is that I don’t have the financial support, I am just on it alone that is the reason I am not well established,” he said.

According to Mr Avoa, his incubators are of great benefit to farmers who are into poultry farming.

“People who are using my incubators always telling me that, the incubators are helping them a lot since they started using them. So many people have confirmed to me that I am doing a wonderful job which is also providing them with benefits,” he said.

Patrick said, his next vision is to manufacture an infant incubator.

Infant incubators are similar to egg hatching incubators but they [infant incubators] are designed to provide a safe and controlled space for infants or premature babies to live in while their vital organs develop.

Mr. Atanga said the infant incubators are very sensitive and complicated but he is still doing his paper works to come out with one in order to help hospitals without infant incubators in the region and beyond.

Young Patrick Avoa whose workshop is under a tree in his family house at Yikene said he intends to share his knowledge with others if he gets a convenient place as his workshop. He stated that it is important for him to share his talent with other people in the Upper East region.
