June 15, 2006

Specialised Industries Company (SPIC), a subsidiary of Nuqul Group has invested $40 million in a nonwovens manufacturing plant in Thuheibeh, Jordan. SPIC established a similar facility in Sahab in 1998. The 22,000 meter plant will increase the company’s exports by 50% and create 150 new jobs, according to executives. Like the company’s existing 7500 ton line, output on the new line will mainly target diapers and adult incontinence applications. Currently about 15% of the company’s nonwovens output is sold locally while the rest is exported to the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
