“The trial production is expected in January 2013,” Ibrahim Fibre director Shahid Amin told ICIS.
The new plant, in which the company is investing $250m (€195m), will more than double the company’s polyester staple fibre capacity to 442,750 tonnes/year, Amin said.
The company currently operates two polyester fibre plants in Pakistsan – a 70,000 tonne/year unit and a 140,000 tonne/year unit – and sells its entire production to the domestic market, where demand is high.
