Mondi, together with Kaso Group, has commenced full production at its new industrial bags plant in Sulaimaniyah, northern Iraq. This is the first plant of its kind to be established in the country, where the growing cement industry is supporting rebuilding efforts. The industrial bags plant marks Mondi’s aim of expanding its reach in the MENA region.
“Iraq is now one of the Middle East’s growing countries and the construction industry is helping to rebuild the nation”, said Abdel Hafez Abki, Managing Director of Mondi Kaso Iraq. “The new plant further strengthens Mondi as a reliable industrial bags partner in the region”, he continued.
