Move strengthens position in Indonesia and rest of Europe.

The Lenzing Group has acquired a 40% share in the Indonesian holding group PGL (Pura Golden Lion). PGL has been handling the local fiber sales of PT.

Lenzing purchased the 40% share from APAC Centertex, a listed Indonesian spinning group, for an undisclosed sale price. The purchase increases Lenzing's indirect share in PT.
