Nelly Cabezas Velazco speaks with pride of the group that she leads as president of the National Association of Innovators and Rationalizers (ANIR) at Rubén Martínez Villena textile factory, known as ALQUITEX.
The old factory, inaugurated by Ernesto Che Guevara in 1965, has never managed to develop an investment program; therefore, its obsolete technology has had to endure over time, thanks to the innovative skill of four ANIR committees operating there.
"The acquisition of spare parts is very complex, especially because our technology is discontinued in the world market," said Cabezas Velazco. “However, we have an innovative movement of 84 workers, who do not allow the looms stop working.
“Among the committees, we have a group of creative women who have innovated in alternative productions, such as dolls, to guarantee income for the factory. “With the pandemic, our main production lines have been modified.
This also highlights the work of our innovators, who managed to revitalize the looms for the manufacture of surgical gauze, so necessary in hospitals and isolation centers.
"We continue making sheets, covers, gowns and masks, whose main destination is the Health staff and areas destined to face COVID-19," said the leader.
Due to the spread of to SARS-CoV-2 positives cases, Artemisa celebrated the Light Industry Worker's Day on March 1 under strict restrictions. Even so, the actions do not stop for the fulfillment of the productive plans, emphasized Doralkys Arencibia Cosme, general secretary of the provincial bureau.
This trade union has 4,726 members: 671 belonging to the Non-State sector and 456 retired. From all of them, in factories and workshops, #TareaOrdenamiento also requires the review of their main productions, production chains, export possibilities and actions that substitute imports.
