Texhong presents final draft on Uruguayan viscose plant
Nov '13
The Chinese textile group Texhong has presented its final draft to the Uruguayan National Environmental Management Agency (DINAMA), for environmental clearance on the construction of the US$ 250 million textile factory, for production of viscose yarn, in the southern region of San Jose Department in Uruguay.
Carlos Fresnedo and Federico Susena, directors of the Donmibal enterprises, who are representing Texhong in Uruguay, said the construction work for the textile factory would begin immediately once Texhong receives environmental clearances from DINAMA and permits from UTE—Uruguay’s state-owned power company, as the factory will have high energy requirements, reports Uruguayan newspaper El Pais.
The textile factory would focus on the production of yarn of artificial polyester fibers and viscose to be used as feedstock for the manufacturing of clothing, especially sportswear, innerwear and performance apparel which would be exported to garment industries in Brazil, they added. The production capacity is estimated to reach approximately 21,500 tons of yarn per year.
The plant in Uruguay is the first investment of the Chinese company in the region, which aims to expand production facilities in major South American countries in the near future.
The construction of the textile factory would take place in three stages and the first stage would include building of a 40,000 sq m warehouse at an estimated cost of around US$ 80 million. On completion of the construction, the factory is estimated to employ nearly 600 people.
Texhong Group is one of the largest core cotton textile suppliers in the world and is a leading textile enterprise with focus on manufacturing high value-added core-spun cotton textile products.
The Group has over 1,600 customers, with sales network spread across China, Europe, South Korea, Hong Kong and Bangladesh, and 11 manufacturing plants in China as well as factories in Turkey and Vietnam.
