TROISDOEF – Sinaatec, a major new player in the nonwovens industry established in 2017 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Madar Holding Group, is taking delivery of two Reifenhäuser Reicofil lines, as the technology supplier’s first Algerian customer.
The two lines, a single-beam meltblown line and composite bico line, both with working widths of 3.2 metres, will target the medical and hygiene sectors.
“The demand for nonwovens remains high,” said Mohamed Lamine Bouchelouche, president and CEO of Sinaatec. We see further growth potential in the North and Central African markets.”
The meltblown line is scheduled to be commissioned this September, while the start of the composite line is planned for Autumn 2023. Sinaatec’s local sites and infrastructure provide space for another plant, so further expansion is possible.
“We are very pleased to install our state-of-the-art production lines at Sinaatec’s advanced production facility for high quality nonwovens,” said Dr Boerge Wessling, Reifenhäuser Reicofil managing director. “Despite an initially digital-only business initiation due to the pandemic, we already have a very cooperative relationship and look forward to further collaboration.”
