Ibrahim Fibres Ltd – Plant I:
Ibrahim Fibres Ltd – Polyester Plant I, initiated in 1994 and has been operational since December 1996. The plant has a capacity to manufacture 70,000 tons of PSF annually.
Ibrahim Fibres Ltd. – Plant II:
After the success of the first Polyester plant, Ibrahim Fibres Ltd, in October 2002, built a new polyester fibre plant adjacent to the first plant to enhance the synergy of operations. The plant is designed to produce 140,000 tons of PSF per annum.
Ibrahim Fibres Limited – Plant III:
In view of growing demand of PSF and its current supply situation in the country, it has been decided to expand the production capacity of its polyester plant by having a single polymer line with a capacity of 650 tons per day and five spinning and staple fibre lines each having a production capacity of 130 tons of PSF per day totaling to 227,500 tons per annum based on 350 working days.
The letter of credit for the expansion project has been opened in the second week of December 2010 and it is expected that Plant III will start commercial production during last quarter of calendar year 2012.
The polyester plants are situated at the integrated site of Ibrahim Fibres Ltd. in shahkot near Faisalabad. In house quality tests are also conducted at Ibrahim Fibres Limiter’s own spinning units thereby assuring the quality of Fibre being supplied to the customers. It is a matter of satisfaction that approximately 50% of Pakistan’s spinning industry is located in the vicinity allowing just in time delivery to over 80% of the customers.
