Textile firm appeals for regular black oil supply

Akosombo Textile Limited (ATL) has requested the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) to offer regular supply of black oil in order that the factory operates at full capacity as the irregular black oil supply is impacting company's production. It requires around 54,000 liters of black oil daily, for its normal production, informed Mr. Kweku Asare- Omenako, Administrative Manager of ATL.

The problem of uneven supply of black oil has started since last year, when TOR started witnessed irregular operations. This year, due to shortage of black oil, the workers of ATL were given a break, said Mr. Asare- Omenako, while briefing a team of the Eastern Regional Security Council (RESEC), led by Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, Eastern Regional Minister that visited the company to know about the challenges, which the company is going through.

Another challenge for the company is smuggling of cheap Chinese wax prints into the country. Chinese people smuggle the copied designs of the company in to the country without paying duties and taxes, lamented the Administrative Manager.

He appealed to Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) to burn smuggled textiles, as penalties imposed on the smugglers were not proving to be effective to curtail them.
Smuggled products are impacting the textile factories of the country badly. Though they produce high quality products, local people prefer smuggled wax due to their cheaper rates, grieved the Manager.
