A joint venture between the state-owned Algerian companies Groupe C&H, TEXALG, SNTA and the Turkish Group TAY, with more than forty years of experience in textiles, has been founded to build one of the biggest textile mills in the world. German textile machinery producer Brückner Textile Technologies has been awarded the contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of machines for dry finishing.
“The coordination team for the project was selected very carefully. The result was a highly experienced and competent crew, compiled with the aim to select the suppliers according to many different criteria and always striving for the highest standards,” Brückner reports.
The project comprises several stages, which will be realised within the next years and has far-reaching and multi-purpose aims: Algeria will become as independent as possible of textiles imports in the medium term and the project will create a large number of jobs.
On a site of around 2,500,000 sqm and with an investment of US$ 800 million, several vertically structured textile plants will be built in the next few years, specialising in various categories of textile end products. The new company will also have an internal service and training centre for new workers.
