Modern Syntex coming to feed into major demand for synthetic yarns

Modern Syntex has stepped up with a big investment in manufacturing polyester and synthetic yarns to fit the bill for global consumers switching from cotton to manmade fabrics. The factory, being developed on 20 acres of land in Bangabandhu Shilpa Nagar, has so far made 90% progress in its work. It has invested $131 million to produce four types of products, such as polyester draw textured yarn (DTY), polyester fully drawn yarn (FDY), polyester staple fibre (PSF), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) chips, to provide backward support to readymade garment, footwear and vehicle-making industries. Currently, Bangladesh depends on imports of such raw materials from China, Indonesia, Korea and India etc. Company officials claimed that once the factory goes into operation in March-April 2023, it will have capacity to meet a major portion of local demand for synthetic and polyester fibres and yarns. According to Modern Syntex sources, the factory is being set up in Zone-6 of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial City with the technological help of German company Oerlikon. Paban Chowdhury, the then executive chairman of Bangladesh Economic Zones Authority (Beza), inaugurated the construction work of this project on 7 February 2020.
