Brückner Textile Technologies was awarded the contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of machines for dry finishing at a new textile mill in Algeria. It is a joint venture between the state-owned Algerian companies Groupe C&H, TEXALG, SNTA and the Turkish Group TAY with more than forty years of experience in the textile area, founded to build one of the biggest textile mills in the world.

On a ground of about 2.5 million sqm and with an investment volume of 800 million USD, several vertically structured textile plants will be built in the next few years, specializing in various categories of textile end products. More importantly, the new company is going to forma huge internal service and training centre for new workers.

The selection of possible machine supplierswas made very carefully. It was selected according to three main criteria: productivity, quality of the products and highest possible energy efficiency. On one hand, the machines should allow an easy operation and on the other hand they have to offer many possibilities for automation, quality control and remote maintenance. In addition, the available local service, as well as on fast and flexible after sales services were also the consideration factors.

BRÜCKNER was chosen thanks to its long-lasting and reliable cooperation in the past. As family-owned and family-run company BRÜCKNER imparts trust and confidence in a faithful cooperation in future, too.

The first step of the project has been divided into denim, non-denim and knits sections. The machinery is in place for fully integrated production lines for 12 million pairs of trousers, 6 million shirts and 12 million t-shirts per year. The scopes of machines include stenters, sanfor ranges, thermosol dyeing and highly flexible denim finishing lines. All machines are custom-made and are provided with many options. In addition, the preparations for the production of home textiles are already underway.

This mega project comprises several stages which will be realized within the next years. The project has far-reaching and multi-purpose aims: Algeria shall become as independent as possible of the textile imports in medium terms and this project will create a great number of jobs.
