New textile factories to create 2,000 jobs in Angola

Aug '13
The two new textile factories that are coming up in the municipality of Cambambe, also spelled Kambambe, in Angola, located in Southern Africa, would create around 2,000 direct jobs.
 
The two new factories—one for making fabric and another for making clothing items—are being built on the same location that once housed the Satec textile factory building, according to Angolan news agency ANGOP.
 
Francisco Diogo, the municipal administrator of Cambambe, said that by 2015 the factories are likely to begin production, and would result in creation of 2,000 direct jobs.
 
The new textile plants being built under a Japanese private investment will be equipped with latest technology.
 
The setting up of the new textile and apparel units is also expected to stimulate the reactivation of the Dondo industrial park, which was once considered one of the top four industrial hubs of the country.
 
Meanwhile, cotton spinning and weaving operations are likely to restart at the Africa Textil this year. Initially, the textile factory would restart with two working lines, of which one would have an annual production capacity of 350,000 bed covers and 100,000 towels.
 
Moreover, in order to satisfy the demand of the country’s textile industry, Angolan Government has invested in cotton production in Malanje and Kwanza Sul provinces and has established cotton processing and spinning units there.
