The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Tema, Yohane Amarh Ashitey has paid a working visit to Tex Styles Ghana (TSG) as part of plans to connect with businesses within the Tema metropolis.
The Managing Director of Tex Styles, Fatoumata Doro, who hosted the MCE at the factory in Tema, presented the company’s growth plans and the various brands under Tex Styles Ghana with a sample of the newly launched collection "Adepa Premium".
“It has been a great pleasure to have the MCE with us today. We have taken him through our history, our plan for the future and shared the challenges facing our industry. Topmost on the list of our challenges is counterfeiting of our designs and smuggling of cheap fabrics into the country. He has shown his support by taking time off his schedule to visit us and we believe we have a strong partner in him as our Mayor,” the MD said.
Mr Ashitey and his delegation were taken on a factory tour.
The Technical Director of Tex Styles, Kodwo Agyenim-Boateng explained the processes involved in creating Ghana’s heritage textile prints.
At the end of the two-hour visit, which also took the delegation to a new shop recently built by the company for both employees and external customers, the Mayor expressed appreciation.
"We all know GTP and the authentic fabrics they produce. However, my visit into the facility today has exposed me to the impressive job being done at TSG," he said.
"It is welcoming to observe the enthusiasm of all the workers as they go about their duties. I am happy to see a company such as TSG existing and providing employment for over 700 people in my metropolis. I pledged to be an ambassador for GTP and all made in Ghana goods”, Mr Amarh Ashitey added.
