RELIZANE (Algeria)- The Algerian-Turkish Group Tayal has exported Thursday a first batch of weaving yarns to four European countries. The Group, located in the Sidi Khattab Industrial Zone (Relizane)
has imported 200 tonnes of yarns in 11 containers to Turkey, Belgium, Portugal and Poland.
The export operation was supervised by Minister of Industry and Mines Youcef Yousfi.
He said that this first export operation is “greatly important to diversify the national exports and progressively reduce oil dependence.”
“This industrial complex, which can employ 10,000 workers within two or three years and 25,000 in 6 years will help expand the range of the industrial products exported by Algeria. The range encompasses building materials, food products and electronic devices and iron and steel,” said the minister.
CEO of the Group Tayal Messut Toprak, said the textile group met the national needs in yarns and moved to export. The group will soon start exporting finished products and ready-to-wear clothing, the manager announced.
Messut Toprak also said that the Group plans to manufacture curtain fabric and other household products, after the completion of its industrial production units at the end of the year.
The industrial complex includes eight industrial units and a school of weaving trades. Its annual production capacity reaches 30 million metres of weaving yarns, 14 million metres of spinning pills and 3,200 tonnes of fabric.
It plans to manufacture over 30 million ready-to-wear clothing, including “Jeans” pants, shirts and fabric of which 60% will be exported especially towards the European market.
