Sinobangla Industries has taken a initiative to enhance its production capacity by about 150 tonnes per month.
Two floors of the factory will also be upgraded to have clean room facilities.
The total estimated cost of the expansion would be about Tk. 150 million (15 crore), which will be financed with funds partially from its internal source as well as bank loans.
The company's board of directors took the decision of increasing production capacity by spending the said amount of fund, a company disclosure said.
To achieve additional production, the board decided to procure capital machinery.
The machinery is as follows-looms: 20 sets, needle looms: six sets, sewing machine: 35 sets, twisting machine, bale press, air wash machine, loop cutting machine, liner shaping machine, baffle punching machine: one set each, evaporate air cooling system: one unit, fabric cutting machine and shrink wrapping machine: two sets each.
Apart from the equipment, a few other ancillary equipment/accessories would also be produced and investment would be made for upgrading two floors of the factory to the level of clean room facilities.
