Jan '16
Ghana Textiles Printing Company (GTP), now officially known as Tex Styles Ghana Ltd, celebrated its 50 years. Marking the occasion, the company hosted a photo exhibition depicting 50 years of the brand history. It was followed by speeches by key dignitaries, fashion show and choir performance, according to Ghanaian media reports.

Kofi Boateng, managing director of Tex Styles Ghana thanked all its customers and consumers for making the brand a success. “We are tremendously honoured to have reached the half century mark as a company. We look forward to another 50 years of success in bringing quality products designed with creativity and originality while never forgetting to give back to the community that has supported us so loyally,” he further added.

Boateng praised the government's effort in supporting the textiles industry, remarking that the Wear Made in Ghana (Friday Wear) campaign initiated by Alan Kyeremateng during his tenure as minister for trade and industry was highly beneficial. 

Kweku Ricketts Hagan, the deputy minister of trade and industry, who was special guest of honour at the occasion, congratulated GTP on its golden jubilee achievement as well as its contribution to the national trade, employment, health and social support. He also emphasised on government's commitment to support the textile and garment sector and accelerated the promotion of what he called 'National Everyday Wear'.

The former board chairman of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC), Dr Ishmael Yamson said the government's performance in supporting the local manufacturing industry had not been spectacular. Expressing his gratitude to the investors he thanked them for putting their faith and money on the company when it was not attractive.

Isaac Ashai Odamtten, mayor of Tema and Solomon Kotei, ICU General Secretary also addressed the event and applauded GTP for all they have accomplished over the past 50 years. (NA)
