With the capacity to produce 500 tons per month, the investment will be made in the town of Itatiba in São Paulo. According to Laerte Guião Maroni, commercial director of the company, the investment is being carried out in order to maintain its position among the leaders in the Brazilian market, better attend the demands of clients and expand business abroad. "We are optimistic about the arrival of the new government and we believe that the needed reforms to resume economic growth will be approved soon," he says.
Scheduled to start operating in 2020, Scavone's new industrial plant will begin construction in 2019. The project will have an area of 20,000 square meters on a 100,000-square-meter plot along the Dom Pedro I Highway. In addition to its strategic location, the project will have ample room for future investment. After the start of operations, the new factory will generate more than 50 direct jobs as well as hundreds of indirect jobs.
The new production line will use the most advanced technologies available in the market to produce carded needlepunched and thermo calendered nonwovens. With the new production, Fabril Scavone will have a total production capacity of 1250 tons per month, which consolidates its position among the largest Brazilian producers and exporters of nonwovens.
