Providing with New Jobs
Art Soft Tex Group has launched a new textile enterprise Buston Trikotaj Mahsulotlari in the Yangikurgan district of Namangan region.
Art Soft Tex Group is one of the major exporters in Namangan. The company specializes in the production of textile and garment products from terry cloth and employs over 700 workers. Most of the goods are exported.
The enterprise, effectively using the wide opportunities created in our country, is working on further expansion of the volume of production.
“Our goal is to open branches in remote villages,” says O. Bobokhonov, CEO of Art Soft Tex Group. “The President of our country attaches special significance to the development of manufacturing industry in the countryside, in localities remote from urban areas, where employment is an acute issue. If entrepreneurs build large modern enterprises not only in cities where there are all the amenities, but also in the villages, create new jobs, they would do good both for themselves and the society. This enterprise is the result of our efforts on this front. Soon, in a remote village of Nanai, we will put into operation a sewing workshop and provide jobs for about 100 women in the village.”
During the organization of Buston Trikotaj Mahsulotlari, a soft loan from Agrobank for 2.5 billion soums and the founder’s funds in the amount of 1.5 billion soums were used. At the enterprise, equipped with modern sewing and weaving looms, 5 thousand items are produced per day. Most of the 120 workers, coming from Kalisho, Bekobod, Peshkurgan and Oralik villages are college graduates.
The first floor of the two-storied building of the venture is home to a firm shop Art Soft Tex Group, a bookstore, a pharmacy, a store for meat and dairy products. About 10 people are provided with jobs.
