Angolan plastics company plans to build factory

26 July 2010

Luanda, Angola, 26 July – Angolan plastics company Angoplásticos plans, in the medium term, to build a factory for plastic and disposables, the company’s manager, Carlos Ferreira said Sunday.

Speaking to Angolan news agency Angop, Ferreira said that the company was carrying out an economic feasibility study to assess the costs of setting up the factory, which equipment and technology to use and the best province in which to set it up.

Ferreira also said that, with the construction of the factory, the company would move away from only distributing and selling plastic products, thus contributing to the government programme for Angola’s industrialisation.

Meanwhile, he noted, the company was carrying out its programme of opening up branches in the country’s interior, which began in 2007, by opening facilities in the provinces of Huambo and Benguela.

Angoplásticos, which has its headquarters in Huíla province, employs 26 people, 17 of which in its offices and 9 in its central warehouse which distributes products imported from Namibia and sold in the Angolan provinces of Huambo and Benguela. (macauhub)
