Launch of denim clothing production in Kyrgyzstan
AKIPRESS.COM – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has handed over modern equipment to the company Textile Trans, which will allow to launch the first production of denim garments in Kyrgyzstan.
The 8.4 million KGS equipment provided by USAID will be used to wash, boil, dry and iron denim garments. For its part, Textile Trans has invested in construction and additional sewing equipment. This investment will allow the company to launch full-cycle production of denim and offer a variety of products for men, women and children.
“Last year, we opened the first mainstream store under the MENIKI brand. This year, with the support of USAID, we are launching the first production of this type of denim clothing in the Kyrgyz Republic. Our goal is to offer high-quality denim products first to local customers and then to international consumers,” says Nurgazy Myshyev, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Textile Trans LLC and Salkyn LLC Group of Companies.
With this expansion, the company is expected to create more than 350 new full-time jobs and increase sales of its products.
Textile Trans LLC is the largest producer of full-cycle cotton knitwear in the Kyrgyz Republic. Today, the Textile Trans group of companies includes five factories with a total area of 25,000 square meters and more than 1,500 employees.
The equipment is provided under USAID’s Business Competitiveness Project. The project works with small and medium enterprises in textiles, food production, agriculture, IT, finance and others to help expand their production and sales, resulting in the creation of jobs in the country. Since 2018, the project has already supported more than 120 businesses across the Kyrgyz Republic and created 5,550 permanent jobs and 10,705 seasonal jobs.
