Vector Health International, a venture of Sumitomo Chemical and Tanzanian partner A to Z Textile Mills, will more than double its capacity for antimalaria mosquito nets to 16.6 million nets per year. Employment at the venture's facility, in Tanzania, will increase by 50% to 6,000 people. Sumitomo says its worldwide net capacity will reach 51 million.
