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.

In rotor spun carded yarn, Adama can produce cotton yarn between the range of Ne 6 and 24 for knitting and between Ne 6 and 30 for weaving. The production capacity of the rotor plant is around 7,000 kgs per day. In ring spun carded yarn, it can deliver counts between Ne 16 and 30 for knitting and between Ne 16 and 40 for weaving.

The company undertook an immediate expansion program in end-September 2010 to produce combed yarn and also enhance the current yarn production capacity by 35 percent at an investment of 107 million Birr. The expansion project would enable the factory to increase its yarn production capacity to 13,500 tons per day.

A cotton ginnery and edible oil factory is also planned to be established in Adama Town. The factory aims to produce lint cotton, edible oil and cotton seeds for local market as well as for own consumption.
