Revealing details, Haitham Moneim, Investor Relations Manager at Oriental Weavers told fibre2fashion, “This planned acquisition of the Rosetex facility, which is located next door, is part of Oriental Weavers expansion strategy.

“Currently Rosetex has no production capacity and what we targeting is the land and Rosetex infrastructure and given that it is located next to OWI, that will allow for further enhancements in production process, due to the vertical integration model of OWI.
