This mega project comprises several stages which will be realized within the next few 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.

In an area of about 2.500.000 sqm, several vertically structured textile plants will be built, specializing in various categories of textile end-products. What is especially great is that the new company is going to have also a huge internal service and training centre for many new workers.

It was a long way before BRÜCKNER was awarded the contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of so many machines for dry finishing. The co-ordination team for the project was selected very carefully. The result was a highly experienced and competent crew, with the aim to select the suppliers according to different criteria and always striving for the highest standards.

First of all, the technological concept, the number and the individual specifications of the required machines had to be chosen. Many meetings and a comprehensive exchange of opinions and experiences led to an optimization of specifications. On the one hand, the machines should allow an easy operation and, on the other, they have to be able to offer many possibilities for automation, quality control and remote maintenance.

The selection of possible machine suppliers was made according to the three main criteria: productivity, quality of the products and the highest possible energy efficiency. In addition, the team focused on the available local service as well as on fast and flexible aftersales services.

BRÜCKNER which was chosen as the best option could convince the co-ordinators with long-lasting and reliable co-operation in the past. As a family-owned and family-run company, BRÜCKNER imparts trust and confidence in a faithful co-operation in the future too.

The first step of the project has been divided into a denim, a non-denim and a knitwear section. The machinery in question is ready, as also the fully integrated lines for production of 12 million trousers, six million shirts and 12 million T-shirts each year. The scope of supply comprises several stenters, sanfor ranges, thermosol dyeing and highly flexible denim finishing lines. All these machines are custom-made and are provided with many options.

Preparations are under way to realize the next stage which comprises production of home textiles.
