Redma explained that so far the polyester yarn production reached 680 thousand tons of a total capacity of 833 thousand tons. "Our utilization still reached 81%, we can increase the production of about 153 thousand tons if a local small industry needs" he said.

Redma explained that in 2011 the production was 680 thousand tons, 200 thousand tons exported and 480 thousand tons supplied to domestic.
