Two firms are to invest 80m yuan ($9.7m) to build China's biggest factory for making jacquard fabric. The Sichuan Huacheng Yinhua Group and the Sichuan Meifeng Chemical Group are buying 80 top-of-the-range jacquard machines. They plan to manufacture over 3.06 million metres of fabric a year. There are only two sample jacquard machines in western China at the moment.
