A foam manufacturing company, Ashfoam has inaugurated a new showroom in Ntsin, a community in the Cape Coast South Constituency.
The facility, the second to be established in the central region, is expected to generate employment in the fishing community and also enhance development.
In a remark, the biggest distributor, Mr Collins K. Ohene, indicated that it was the desire of the company to improve the socio-economic fortunes of the area, through job creation.
He said the area initially deterred the company because of its location, but “we remained resolute in our quest to create jobs in all locality and succeeded in achieving that aim”.
Mr Ohene urged residents to support the facility by patronising the goods in the shop such as mattresses, bedsheets, pillows, duvets, curtains, carpets, sofas, centre tables, towels and rugs to ensure the boosting of business.
