Austrian Lenzing Group inaugurated its fifth production line in Indonesia
Towards the end of October Lenzing started successfully trial operations of the fifth production line at its Indonesian subsidiary PT. South Pacific Viscose
The new line will add an additional annual nominal capacity of 80000 t of viscose fibres thus the total capacity will increase to 320000 t upon full operation of the fifth production line and thus exceeding the capacity of 250000 t of the parent plant in Lenzing (A). The Indonesian plant will for the first time ever become the world’s largest viscose fibre plant. According to Peter Untersperger, CEO of Lenzing, stated “more than half of Lenzing’s fibre production capacity is now located in Asia”.
As we all know, Indonesia disposes of a significant textile industry representing one of the largest industrial sectors of the country. Lenzing’s subsidiary is an important supplier and reliable partner of the local industry with a presence of almost 30 years. Also customers from Asia, but nearly all continents are provided with high-quality fibres for textiles and nonwovens from the Indonesian Purwakarta plant.
