As part of the project, a complex of Italian dyeing equipment was purchased for 1.5 million euros. Technical re-equipment will make it possible to introduce new directions for dyeing chemical tow and staple fiber into production, and will provide an opportunity to expand the color range of yarn from chemical fibers with an even color in finished form. Additionally, new twisting machines were purchased, and the purchase of winding machines is planned.

The project is being implemented in four stages at the expense of innovation funds. Its implementation will create 40 new jobs, increase the competitiveness of products in export markets and replace imports. The geography of exports will be expanded through new markets in Uzbekistan, Iran, the United Arab Emirates and other countries.
