In his speech at the opening ceremony, Yousfi said 40 percent of the factory’s production would meet the needs of the domestic market and 60 percent would be exported.
The full facility will be built in three phases on a plot of land with a total surface area of 2.5 million square meters in the Sidi Khettap industrial zone of Algeria’s Relizane Province through a partnership of the Algerian government and the Taypa textile company of the Turkish Tay Group.
The facility will employ 10,000 people in the first stage. Once the entire facility has been completed it is expected to employ 25,000 people and produce 60 million meters of denim fabric and 30 million pieces of garments annually.
The second stage includes 10 factories that will produce ready-made garments, industrial fibers, denim and knitted and woven fabrics.
