TROISDORF, Germany , July 18, 2022 (press release) –

Reifenhäuser Reicofil announces the delivery of two nonwoven lines to its first Algerian customer SINAATEC Spa (Algiers) – a new major player in the Algerian nonwoven industry. The company was established in 2017 as a wholly owned subsidiary of MADAR HOLDING Group. The two lines, a 3.20 m-wide single-beam Meltblown line and an equally 3.20 m-wide Composite Bico line, will target the medical and hygiene sectors.

Mohamed Lamine Bouchelouche, President and CEO at SINAATEC, says: "The demand for nonwovens remains high. We see further growth potential in the North and Central African markets." The meltblown line is scheduled to be commissioned as early as this year in September, while the start of the composite line is planned for autumn 2023. SINAATEC's local sites and infrastructure provide space for another plant, so further expansion is possible.

Dr. Boerge Wessling, Managing Director at Reifenhäuser Reicofil, adds: “We are very pleased to install our state-of-the-art production lines in SINAATEC’s    advanced production facility for high quality nonwovens. Despite an initially digital-only business initiation due to the pandemic, we already have a very cooperative relationship and look forward to further collaboration.”
