Production of nonwovens and technical textiles has the potential to fortify the textile market in Belarus and make it a new hub for European textile production. Mogilevkhimvolokno, a textile company and the largest European producer of polyester yarns and fibers, will create a new industrial cluster. The first stage of this project will focus on production and processing of technical yarns, while the second stage will focus on production of products aimed at exports.
This new cluster will also house research and development facilities for testing and design of new products, and will operate from processing of raw materials to production of final products. Production from the cluster will be exported primarily to North America and Europe, with a special focus on Germany, where demand for technical textiles has increased substantially over the last few years.
The increased production that Mogilevkhimvolokno’s new project will provide is expected to contribute significantly to the overall success of Belarus’s textile industry and technical textiles, and will open new doors and opportunities for other textile manufacturers in the country.
Additionally, companies in Belarus are establishing contracts and agreements with companies in Pakistan to capitalize on the growing demand for yarn and technical textiles in Pakistan.
