The decision to take over Bukharatex has been taken after taking in to consideration of the successful management of two other mills run by the company. Daewoo International is currently running Daewoo Textile Company and Daewoo Textile Fergana.

The investment will be used to ramp up existing production capacity and Daewoo foresees a turnover exceeding $35 million. This takeover will turn the company in to one of the biggest textile groups in Uzbekistan.

Along with the investments in the textile industry in Uzbekistan, Daewoo also has recently signed an agreement to develop mines with UNG which is a state owned energy company.
