Jordan’s Nuqul Group plans to build a new converting facility in Qazvin Industrial Estate, about 120 km west of Tehran. The plant is set to cost some $18 million.

The firm has chosen the equipment suppliers and project consultants, but their names are under wraps for the moment. Construction was set to kick off last month with startup to follow in December. The facility will be ready for commercial production by mid-March 2008.

The plant will house six converting lines, which will be able to produce up to 1,800 tonnes/yr of facial tissues and 24 million toilet rolls/yr, as well as personal care products. The plant will run eight hours/day after startup, but Nuqul hopes to run at full capacity if there is sufficient demand.

The raw material will mainly come from the group’s tissue mills and nonwoven plants. Output is destined both for the Iranian market and nearby countries such as Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
