Austria-based Lenzing Group has announced plans to acquire the remaining 30 percent of its China-based subsidiary Lenzing (Nanjing) Fibers Co. Ltd. (LNF) from its state-owned joint venture partner NCFC, which initiated the underlying structured selling process in a state controlled bidding process.

Over time, Lenzing plans to convert LNF into a specialty fibers hub.
