China: viscose fibre production

The Lenzing Group, a manufacturer of cellulose-based fibres, will build its own viscose fibre production plant in China. The new production site, to be situated in an industrial park near the town of Nanjing in the SE Jiangsu province, will have an annual capacity of about 60,000 tons of viscose staple fibres for textile and non-woven applications. Lenzing will contribute key technology to the new site to assure high product quality standards as well as European environmental standards. Start-up can be expected in the fourth quarter of 2006 after a construction time of about 18 months. Lenzing AG joined hands with Nanjing Chemical Fibre Co. Ltd. (NCFC) as the local partner for the new viscose fibre production site. Lenzing and NCFC will operate the new plant on a joint-venture basis, with Lenzing holding a majority of the shares.
