Kotoko performance excites Interplast
Posted on: Mon Apr 23, 2012
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Interplast, Arthur Huberts has lauded Asante Kotoko’s efforts in the 2011/2012 Glo Premier League, saying that his company feels honoured by the sterling performance of the team. He said Interplast, producers of high quality pipes and profiles and one of Kotoko’s renowned sponsors have had great pleasure in its association with the club adding that Interplast would look forward to more good times.
Arthur Huberts made these pronouncements when officials and players of the club led by Executive Chairman, Dr. K. K. Sarpong toured Interplast’s offices and manufacturing base in Accra last week. Welcoming the Kotoko contingent comprising management and technical members and players, the Interplast CEO congratulated the team for their hard work.
He said his company has been dedicated to quality delivery and that they would always want to associate with quality performance disclosing that Kotoko’s excellent run gives Interplast great pleasure. Arthur Huberts wished the Porcupines good luck ahead of the 25th week league duel against Mighty Jets in Accra before opening the floor for any question.
Gideon Baah, who scored the second goal of in the 2-0 win over Mighty Jets on Saturday afternoon, was first to fire a question. He asked the Interplast CEO if his company had future plans to become Kotoko’s prime sponsor. Arthur Huberts answered in the negative but he positively argued that Interplast would have no reason to pull out of the current sponsorship arrangement with Kotoko unless the team begins to “lose badly”.
The contingent was then divided into three groups for the tour. Whereas the CEO led the first group, the General Manager, Sivanesh Kumar led group two with the Shipping Manager, John Gbeve handling group three. The three groups toured the Polyethylene and Profiles Sections including warehouses of the ceiling and wall panels and areas of other finished products.
It was a memorable encounter for most of the players as Kotoko fans within the premises cheered them throughout. While some of the supporters snapped pictures with the players others interacted with them heartily. And when David Ofei and Fatawu Mohammed joined workers who were packing plastic panels into a truck packed in front of the T&G ware-house, the stimulating atmosphere turned more hilarious.
Three groups then converged at the reception for a wrap-up. Goalie Isaac Amoako however inquired from Arthur Hurberts what his company gains from associating with Kotoko in which case, the CEO answered that branding was important to them. He explained that by having Interplast’s insignia at the back of the team’s jerseys the company was advertising.
The CEO stressed that with Interplast’s presence in Kumasi, their association with Kotoko – a Kuamsi based club was proper and beneficial. In a closing remark, Dr. K. K. Sarpong thanked the company for their immense support. The Executive Chairman touched on the new insights into Interplast’s operations adding that Kotoko would continue to do its best to maintain the corporate relationship.
The company presented bags containing shirts, caps and pens to the contingent. Players and officials who spoke to Kotoko Express on their experiences expressed their gratitude to the club’s management and Interplast for what they described as an enlightening industrial tour.
