AGORWU FURNITURE has introduced a state-of-the-art technology that would use metal to manufacture furniture instead of timber.
The equipment for the production and shaping of the metal had already been acquired and production had begun.
Mr. Samuel Kwame Diabo, Managing Director of Agorwu Furniture, disclosed this to Daily Guide during an end-of year get-together for staff and management of the company over the weekend.
He said the company was continually expanding its production base, hence the introduction of the new technology, which would also be used to manufacture metal doors, kitchen cabinets, beds, dinning tables, wardrobes and hammock.
“Our decision to shift from timber to metal is because we have realised metals are more durable than wood,” he noted. He further noted that timber was gradually getting depleted, hence the need for alternative materials.
Mr. Diabo lamented, the importation of inferior furniture was killing the local wood industry and therefore appealed to the government to do something about it.
He also urged Ghanaians to patronise locally-made furniture, which he described as hundred per cent stronger than the imported ones.
