Soap Manufacturing Company Shuts Down

A local manufacturing company in Cape-Coast in the Central region has been shut down suddenly by the management.

Workers of Ameen Sangari Industries reported to work Monday morning to read notices that the factory had been closed down until further notice.

Management has directed the workers are paid their February salaries while they work on their severance packages.

Shocked workers of the company have been asked to enter the premises on Monday and collect their salaries and belongings.

This comes after dozens of workers of Ameen Sangari Company Limited, the only manufacturing company in Cape Coast, in February this year staged a demonstration to press home their demand for the payment of salary arrears and redundancy packages.

The Lebanese owned Company, manufacturer of soaps, detergents, polish, perfumes, palm oil and the processing of teak into electric poles, has been in existence for over 100 years.

It is the oldest manufacturing company in the Central Region.

The workers, clad in red armbands and headgears, besieged the company’s premises chanting war songs to register their protest against poor and unpaid salaries and allowances, discrimination and politicisation.
