Turkmen President to open Ashgabat textile complex Phase 2
Oct '13
The President of the Central Asian country of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, will be opening the second phase of the Ashgabat textile complex, in the Turkmen capital city of Ashgabat, on the eve of the independence day of the country, which falls on October 27, 2013.
According to a statement issued by the Turkmen Government, the President chaired a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, during which the information on the opening ceremonies of buildings and facilities, especially the Ashgabat textile complex’s second phase were presented.
The industrial facility was built on the order of the Ministry of Textile Industry of Turkmenistan, and was constructed on a total area of 43 hectares in the capital city.
Currently, the textile complex is the largest in the country for the production of colored terry fabric and a wide range of finished products from them. Equipped with advanced technology from Japanese and European manufacturers, the complex has established itself as one of the best suppliers in the world of textile market products made from 100 percent cotton. The annual capacity of production is 5,200 tons of raw and 4,900 tons of dyed terry fabrics, and 19 million pieces of finished products, including bathrobes and towels of different sizes.
Under the second phase of the complex, new technological facilities have been installed in the departments of weaving, dyeing, finishing and sewing which are next to the already operating terry fabrics and finished products departments. The complex would also be launching production of home textiles made from high quality cotton fabrics under its second phase.
The Ashgabat textile complex was constructed by Folkestone Holdings Inc, which is registered under the British Virgin Islands, on the order of the Turkmen Ministry of Textile Industry.
