GILSAN manufacturing is a free zone company that specializes in the production of household products – antiseptics, liquid detergents and bleach.
It was started in 2006, on a small scale by a family of seven (7) at Mamprobi, when the mother of the house, Mrs. Esther Agyekum took an initiative in the making of liquid soap to support the family. She was assisted by her husband, Mr. Emmanuel Agyekum and son Mr. Alfred George Agyekum.
With time, production increased, and the business had to be relocated to Sunny Coast (SCC), Accra in 2010. In the same year, Ivy’s Brown antiseptic was introduced leading to a massive expansion of the business, hence the need to register the business. Here, siblings Abigail Antwiwaa Agyekum, Sandra Darkwa Agyekum, Bernard Danso Agyekum and Ivy Ampomaa Agyekum joined the business.
The business name was coined from ABIGAIL and SANDRA; ABIGAIL – GIL and SANDRA- SAN giving us the Company’s name, GILSAN.
In 2011 and 2012, Ivy’s lemon and Cuzy’s antiseptic were introduced respectively. This growth compelled GILSAN to relocate to a new factory at Old Barrier, a suburb of Accra in 2013. Expansion of the business brought in people who played key roles in decision making and later became part of the board of directors (BOD) of the company.
