Particleboard plant to be set up in Nhlangano, Swaziland9 August 2012
A particleboard plant is being constructed at Montigny Investments (PTY) Ltd, in Nhlangano, Swaziland, for the manufacture of coffins, kitchen items and other furniture. The E35m (US$4.8m) project is the first of its kind in Swaziland and will create 150 jobs.
The plant, which began construction in April, is scheduled to complete April 2013.
Managing director Neal Rijkenberg said the motive behind setting up the plant was to produce the company's own products and to make use of the waste from the logs.
"Our company must supply and produce items that will be sold locally and internationally," explained Mr Rijkenberg.
