This follows the company’s expansion of its Turkish plant in Cerkezkoy, near Istanbul, completed last year as a part of its plans of placing production as close to the customers as possible.

Undergoing two expansion phases that will take place this August and November, the production facility of creora brand spandex in Nhon Trach, Dong Nai, Vietnam, will be designated for the Asian customers, while the factory in Turkey is targeting the European markets.

Growth strategy

“We continue to invest in elastane fibre as we believe market demand is going to continue to grow and our state of the art facilities will enable creora to be of the best quality, consistency, and value and will continue to solidify our global leadership position,” said President Whang of Hyosung's Spandex Performance Unit.

“Our expansion in Turkey, completed in 2012, also supports our growth strategy and meets the needs of many European brands and retailers who require production proximity to meet changes in market demand.  We are best placed to ensure fast delivery to European and North African customers.”
