Havana, Nov 11 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban-Italian ARTHIS Co. joint venture and new client at the Mariel Special Development Zone will construct a plant dedicated to producing disposable diapers for babies and adults, items which are in high demand.
According to Solangel Guach Martin, Business Director of the Italian company, this is an association between Cuba’s NEXUS Co. Mercantile Society Industries and Italia’s LR Moroni S.R.L.
The plant will have state of the art technology, with several lines of production that will put out diapers for children in four sizes and three in the case of adults.
Guach Martin added that the investment will be done in two years and the plant will begin production in 2019.
The contract will be valid for 20 years, he said and it represents an opportunity to insert high quality products at competitive prices in the Cuban market to meet the domestic demand.
So far, Cuba imports disposal diapers for children and adults. The new investment will constitute a significant contribution to replace imports and will respond to the current Cuban demographic dynamics, Guach Martin said.
