In 2018-2020, more than $22 million was invested, modern equipment from Germany, Japan, the United States, Belgium and Switzerland was installed here.
Today, the company has turned into a large cluster covering the entire production cycle from the primary processing of raw cotton to the tailoring of ready-made clothing. It employs 880 people. The cluster is capable of processing 30 thousand tons of cotton per year. Last year, it produced products worth 240 billion UZS, exported goods worth more than $6 million.
“These are the first results of large-scale work. But this is not the limit. Now it is necessary to master the next stages of processing, introduce innovative technologies and strive to increase the production of value-added products”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
Next year, the cluster plans to start producing ready-made clothes of natural and chemical fibers. It is expected that the $25 million worth of project will increase exports to $30 million and create an additional thousand jobs.
