Thirty-two assembly members of the Ashaiman Municipal Assembly have paid a familiarisation visit to PREFOS limited, a Ghanaian street light assembling plant at Adarko-Jachie near Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
The visit was led by the Municipal Chief Executive of Ashaiman, Mr Ibrahim Baidoo and Mr J. A. Asihene, the Co-ordinating Director of the Assembly ,to acquaint themselves with the quality of the products.
Conducting the Assembly members round the production section of the company, Mr Frank Agyeman, Financial Director of the Company, said the company was established to ensure a reliable supply of quality street lights.
He said the company had also established a training school at the plant to offer in-service training for electricians from the various assemblies, to provide effective after services maintenance.
Mr Agyeman said the vision of the company was to partner with the assemblies and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to cut down on the high cost of importing street lights and also reduce the unemployment situation in the country.
