SGT ALGERIE SPA
Know-how that comes naturally
In 2001, SGT continued to grow, opening a new preform manufacturing site in Rouïba, Algeria. The Algerian subsidiary, taking advantage of a rapidly growing market in North Africa, quickly attained the status of leader, and in 2013 it opened a second factory at Setif, in the north-east of the country. SGT Algérie SPA secures the future of its business, ensuring that its staff are trained in the latest injection processes. As of today, 240 Algerian employees have become experts, and contribute to keeping up the technological progress of the company.

A strategy of proximity
With the creation of its Algerian subsidiary, SGT is building closer relations with its customers in the Maghreb countries and brings them local solutions suited to their needs and lifestyles, while at the same time furthering its policy of social and environmental responsibility. In this way, the group has reproduced its know-how, exporting eight machines to the Setif site. The other factory, at Rouïba, is equipped with 15 injection presses for PET preforms. With offers adapted to local conditions, an industrial plant using the latest technology and experts with 30 years’ experience in the profession, SGT Algérie SPA has successfully consolidated its position as leader in the North African continent.
