PEGAS NONWOVENS announces that it has reached further key milestones of the Egyptian production plant project.
At the end of January the gross assembly of the production technology was completed and the plant was connected to the power grid. Work has now begun on the initial commissioning of the production line, where all its functions will be tested and fine tuned. "We are delighted to have reached further important milestones of this project. Connecting the plant to the power grid was an essential step towards being able to commence the next stage of commissioning the line, which consists of starting up, testing and fine tuning the production technology. Of course, a new line is not only about technology but also
about the personnel who will be operating it. At the present time we are intensively training twenty of our Egyptian colleagues at our facilities in the Czech Republic and it gives us great pleasure to support their enthusiasm and active effort to quickly learn the production process. I am glad to be able to confirm that the project is proceeding according to the demanding schedule and that we continue to expect the production line to be operational in the third quarter of this year", said František Řezáč, CEO and member of the Board of Directors of PEGAS NONWOVENS SA.
