According to the budget, the Board of Directors of the Holding Company approved the financing of an operational plan for the factories at LE 101 million, for the continuation of the production process in order to maintain a national product of tires in the local market.
The company also has a pilot study to establish a tire factory with the latest technology currently available with one of the international companies.
