Adama Spinning Factory, an ISO 2008:9001 certified company and a subsidiary of Adama Development Plc was established in 2006 and started operations in July 2008. It has facilities to manufacture both, open end and ring spun yarn. The factory is located in Oromia, about 100 km from the capital Addis Ababa and is one of the largest spinning facilities in East Africa with a production capacity of 10,000 kgs of cotton yarn per day.

The factory is well equipped with state-of-art technology. Most of the machinery, various mechanical, electrical and electronic equipment has been sourced from renowned and most reliable Switzerland based companies like Rieter and Luwa. The winding machines are from Murata of Japan, equipped with yarn cleaner Uster Quantum-2. In setting up this spinning plant, Adama has created job opportunities for around 250 employees.

The laboratory set up by Adama is also fully equipped with equipment from Mesdan, a highly reputed Italian company, which ensures quality as per customer specification. It maintains quality Uster standards between 5-25 percent. It has facilities to twist cotton yarn as per customer's specific need and deliver cotton cones packages in between 2-2.5 kg.
