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.
