Producers of GTP, Woodin and Vlisco...

On June 22, members of the CCIFG paid a visit to and had a tour of Tex Style Ghana Limited's fabric manufacturing facility.

The group was welcomed by Joyce Sackitey, the Head of Communication and Transformation and Angellette Ansah-Brown, the Communications Officer. Led by Mr. Kwaku Adae, the Technical Training Manager, attendees toured the extensive factory plant of Tex Styles Ghana Limited (TSGL), a member of the global Textile giant VLISCO BV headquartered in Helmond, The Netherlands. The Company is located in the Tema Heavy Industrial Area.

GTP is the first indigenous Ghanaian textile brand launched unto the Ghanaian market in Jan 1966 by the late Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President. GTP, as a VLISCO GROUP member, inherited the wax-printing process from Vlisco Company based in Helmond. However, the GTP brand has moved on from the traditional process to making wax prints without wax; rather using the Rotary Screen-Printing Machines.
Over the years, GTP has grown to become a truly local brand with full design teams coming from Africa, full productions done in Ghana, and the importation of some of its raw materials (cotton) from the West Africa market. This has supported the brand mission to provide made in Africa products and products made by Africans. This supports the brand’s aim of providing a more distinctive African DNA with premium quality to its consumers.

The visit ended with a quick networking event for the guests.
