The new lithosheet capacity consists of the installation of an additional cold rolling mill and a new litho finishing line.

The capacity of the new production processes is around 75,000 mt/year, more than doubling the company's current capacity.

The scheduled start-up of the new processes is late 2015.

The research and development laboratory, a newly constructed unit which is in addition to the company's current development facilities, was expected to come into operation in early May 2014.
