ICW's objective is that Europe does not depend on the stock of the foreign market
The company's new factory, based in Lisbon, has 4 production lines for nitrile gloves from the Bailixin Machinery Brand (the best manufacturing lines in the world) with a production capacity of 400 million gloves per month and an ambitious objective: to double current production and reach 2021 million gloves per month before the end of 800, at its new facilities in the Portuguese capital.
In this way, the company provides, at a crucial moment in the development of the pandemic and with what this means for the European economy and labor market, a new factory, with quality controls and the most advanced technology that to date only the Asian market was available.
The company's goal is help stabilize prices, qualities and delivery times, of some products that were being used to a greater extent by Asian manufacturers. This expansion operation is the result of fluctuations in current demand and the significant, in turn, shortage of PPE material in the glove market, especially together with ffp2 masks, IIR surgical masks, gowns, caps, booties, etc. .
Faced with this textile circumstance, Béjar wants to be an integral solution thanks to the manufacture of nitrile gloves, a product destined for both hospitals, clinics, outpatient clinics and a long etc. of companies that may need these products on a recurring basis.
In this way, the option of a safe and close production appears that, in addition to generating employment, give us the peace of mind that the product can quickly reach its destination without the risk of shortages due to the international market or dumping from suppliers and broker of world imports.
ICW Holding has invested 25 million euros to purchase from RCRE, the largest and only sanitary nitrile glove factory in Europe, with more than 15,000 m2, 4 production lines, capacity to produce 400 million nitrile gloves per month.
The most active holding
It thus becomes the most active holding company in the investment of sanitary textiles, a sector of strategic economic relevance that is becoming a structural necessity of our life habit in the so-called "new normal". At the same time, this bet contributes to rebuilding a labor fabric battered by the pandemic, which it finds in these new market opportunities due to the health situation, a way to strengthen and deal with the economic crisis in the market that has claimed so many jobs in 2020 and for now in 2021.
The person in charge of directing this new acquisition and expansion in neighboring Portugal of ICWHOLDING will be Ricardo Martins professional with 20 over years of experience in the international markets.
