PT. South Pacific Viscose (SPV), a part of The Lenzing Group located in Purwakarta, Indonesia, has been a producer of viscose staple fibers and sodium sulfate since 1982. Based on the installation of a new state-of-the-art production line in 2010, SPV's total capacity of viscose fibers for textile and nonwovens applications presently amounts to 240,000 tons p.a. Sodium sulfate capacity is currently about 140,000 tons per year. In response to strong demand for viscose fibers in Asia and wolrdwide, the Lenzing Group has decided to further increase production capacities at PT. South Pacific Viscose. Construction of the fifth production line entailing investments exceeding USD 130 million is currently underway. The addition of this new "jumbo line" will increase SPV's total annual capacity to 310,000 tons of viscose fiber.
