AMERICAN company Callison Pine Pacific Chemicals Limited has made about $500,000 in revenue for the country following the production of about 800 tonnes of pine resin last year.

And this year, the company plans to produce about 7000 tonnes for its overseas markets in a bid to increase exports and also create employment opportunities for the locals.

Company CEO Semi Lotawa yesterday said they planned to increase their production this year.

"We have strategised our work well this year and we aim to produce 7000 tonnes of pine resins," Mr Lotawa said.

"The company just operated a year ago and we now have 600 workers across the board.

"As part of our agreement with the government, we will continue to boost our production, provide employment opportunities to locals and also enforce sustainable working practices for the environment."

Mr Lotawa said they had worked closely with Fiji Pine Limited for the purpose of meeting their targets.

He visited workers in Seaqaqa where he informed them of their 2014 plans and also encouraged them to continue with the good work.
