Selorm Betepe, a gentleman who used to work in a small shop at Achimota in the Greater-Accra region of Ghana, has successfully developed his small sign-writing business into a huge company.
The chief executive officer and founder of Seloart, Selorm Betepe, posted the story of his business going from 'grass to grace' on his official Facebook page.
Selorm also shared amazing before and after pictures that reveal how things were back in 2005 when it all began, to where the enterprise is now.
Recently, the company, which made a name as The Seloart Group, opened an ultra-modern facility that is capable of handling multiple clients' needs at the same time.
The new factory is located in Pokuase near Accra and has CNC, laser cutting and engraving, letter forming, channel bending and large format digital printing systems capable of processing over 30 different applications.
Speaking at the launch of the ultra-modern facility, Selorm revealed a portion of the journey they underwent:
“In 2009, we decided to take our production to another level and that required us to build a state-of-the-art sign centre fitted with the relevant technology to enable us to meet demand as well as achieve our goal of becoming the signage manufacturing company of choice.
"Ten years down the line, this is where we are today; from road signwriters to sign makers,” he said.
There are plans to further advance the factory and add an additional 600m² state of the art steel fabrication plant nearby.
Selorm Betepe revealed that their plan is that the new advancement will also be operational by the end of 2021.
