The company's administrator, Vivaldo Ramos, informed that the machines are already installed and that "tests are proceeding at a good pace", with "documentation for the start-up" of the manufacturing unit being awaited.

"At this moment the machines are installed and the tests are going well, we are just waiting for documentation to start the factory," he said, quoted by Angop.

More than half (85 percent) of the raw material to be used by the factory – whose daily capacity to respond to market demand will be around 70 to 80 percent – will be national, based on recycling, and will resort to importing remaining 15 percent.

According to the person responsible, they decided to embrace local production in order to reduce imports. "We embrace local production to reduce imports, especially of this material," he said, quoted by Angop.

However, it is not just the opening of this factory that Sino Ord has in mind. The company also plans to start a manufacturing unit for burlap bags, masks and disposable diapers, another for aluminum and one for steel cable.

According to the person responsible, with the opening of these three factories, the company wants to achieve between 3000 and 4000 direct jobs and 800 indirect jobs.

He also said he believes that this year will be "good" for the company, noting that they have many Chinese businesspeople interested in investing: "We believe that 2024 will be a good year for the company. We have many Chinese businesspeople interested in investing and who stands to gain is the province of Bengo", he said, quoted by Angop.

There are already some units operating in the Sino Ord industrial park. Among them, ceramics stands out, whose daily production is around 45 thousand boxes of mosaics and tiles and almost half (40 percent) is exported to the markets of the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Namibia and from South Africa.

However, according to the person responsible, in 2024, the company wants to expand this export to other countries. "This year we intend to expand the export of these products to Botswana and Tanzania, using the Lobito corridor", he indicated.
