Conventium International Limited, a Germany-based company, plans to invest in several textile development projects in collaboration with the African nation of Zambia. The German company specializes in textile production, supply chain management and project development.
 
Mr. Klaus Ehrhardt, Managing Director, Conventium International Limited, told Fibre2fashion, “We have surveyed the situation of textiles in Zambia and accordingly planned a step by step procedure for our joint projects.”
 
“The first step is to buy cotton from Zambia and then this cotton will be prepared for knitting in our spinning mills. Next, we will set up a sewing factory in Zambia or utilize the existing sewing capacities in the Southern African country,” he reveals.
 
“Third step will be to facilitate the knitting and sewing of textiles in Zambia. Later, the process of dyeing and printing can also follow,” adds Mr. Ehrhardt.
 
He further opines, “Prior to setting up a spinning mill in Zambia, we have to be in Zambia for at least 2 to 4 years in order to have a better understanding of the Zambian people and their ideas.”
 
“At present we are planning a visit to Zambia in order to do some fact finding for the needs of cotton and sewing capacities in the country,” says the Managing Director of Conventium International.
 
Conventium promotes investments between Europe and Africa, especially in industrial, human and infrastructural development sectors. The company currently has operating units in Turkey, Germany and South Africa.
