Mogilev Chemical Fibre Plant produced BYR 160.5 billion worth of goods in January-March 2007, or 10% up on the year, Interfax learnt from a company representative.
The output of consumer goods rose by 8% on the year to reach BYR 4.2 billion. Exports made $41 million (16% up).
The source attributes the rise in exports to a recent increase in demand for Mogilevkhimvolokno products in the CIS and non-CIS states.
Mogilevkhimvolokno is one of Europe's leading producers of polyester fibres and threads and the only manufacturer of polyethylene terephthalate in the CIS. It was established in 1968 and transformed into a joint-stock company in 2002.
99.95% of the equity capital belongs to state. The company employs about 13,000 people.
