Cotton has been cultivated and woven in Togo for centuries, long considered one of the success stories of African agriculture. The Plateforme Industrielle d’Adétikope will serve to pursue this story and allow Togo and its natural resources to thrive with modern infrastructure and integrated logistics services.

PIA is a vertically integrated industrial zone, focussed at creating thriving value chains for the textile industry – from raw material sourcing to resource transformation through manufacturing, to exporting final products. The Plateforme Industrielle d’Adétikope is set to become a world-class industrial zone and an ecosystem facilitating the competitive manufacturing of cotton by transforming local raw cotton into textile.

To deliver this ambition, ARISE IIP will work with the Togolese government to attract foreign investors, establish linkages across the whole value chain, organise trade shows for hosted companies to showcase and market their products, and boost exports.

Ecosystem Approach

PIA’s social impact (CSR) in the textile industry

The company Plateform Industrial Adétikopé SAS, promoter of the project, has created 228 direct and 1405 indirect jobs since the start of PIA’s construction to date. Indirect jobs are composed of those created through the various construction and service provision companies within the zone, almost all of which are Togolese companies owned by Togolese people. This shows that the local workforce is at the forefront of our activities and projects. Furthermore, these numbers do not take in account the direct and indirect jobs created, or that will be created, by the investors. This project has high economic potential and creates jobs due to the sectors targeted, particularly the Textile sector. 

Sustainability initiatives

Our social actions will carry on during 2022 to continue the creation of a positive environmental and social impact on Togolese populations in all regions.
