New Lenzing plant online
Wednesday, 10 February 2010

Indonesia - Lenzing Group is set to ramp up capacity at its Indonesian subsidiary, South Pacific Viscose, following the completion of successful trials of a fourth production line.

The new line took 18 months to complete and represents a US$150 million investment for the Austrian-based fibre manufacturer. The regular production of viscose fibres is expected to begin during the fiscal second quarter, with most of the capacity earmarked for textile applications for the domestic Indonesian market and for export. Some will also be for the nonwovens industry.
