The Algerian’s largest textile factory in a joint venture with Turkey begins its one month pilot production on Thursday at a production rate of 20 tonnes per day and will produce textile yarn during this period, the Algerian Ministry of Industry and Mines announced yesterday.

The factory’s working system will gradually move to three teams per day (8 hours per team) with a production capacity of 20 tonnes per team or 60 tonnes per day.

The factory will be built over an area of 250 hectares in Sidi Khattab, in the north western province of Relizane, and includes eight units which will produce various types of textiles under the project’s first phase.

According to the ministry statement the second phase of the project will include 10 factories that will produce ready-made garments, industrial fibres, denim, and knitted and woven fabrics.

According to the Algerian Minister of Industry and Mines, Youcef Yousfi, 40 percent of the production would meet domestic market needs and 60 percent would be exported.

The Algerian joint venture called Tayal owns 51 percent of the project divided between the Algerian public enterprises Apparel and Clothing, which own 30 percent of the project, and Texalg, which owns 21 percent. The remaining 49 percent is owned by the Turkish company, Intertay, a subsidiary of the Turkish group Taypa.
