Safetex Group has begun construction of 500 tons per month polyester staple fibre (PSF) plant in Ras Al Khaimah – UAE.

It is the first PSF plant to be set up in the emirate and will produce the fibre in a eco-friendly manner from bottle grade prime resin, prime and off specs resins and recycled plastic bottle flaks and chips.

The plant will be set up at a cost of US $10 million and will commence production in March 2012. The production capacity will be hiked to 1,200 tons per month by 2013-end.

The company, Emirates Fibre Industries has imported the machinery from various manufacturers in Europe and Far East countries. The building is expected to be state-of-the-art and has been designed with future expansions in mind.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, Mr Md Saleem Ahmad, MD & CEO - Safetex Group said, “The Safetex plant are pioneers of PSF production in UAE and we expect our sales to double, once the plant is operational”.

He is hopeful that the demand for the fibre produced by Emirates Fibre Industries will be very good.
