Kormantse has two Asafo Companies - Bentsir which is the number 1 and Nkum as the number 2.

Flag remnants hangs in front of a door in the compound of flag-maker Kwame Sasah's home in Kormantse.
The latest catch of sardine fish awaits smoking preservation on Kwame Sasah's compound. Fante (Mfantsefo) people living along the coast are dependant primarily on fishing whereas agriculture is the main occupation inland.
