In addition to nappies for children and adults, the Cuban-Italian joint venture launched a second production line in September 2021 with the Angelica brand, which caters to Cuban women with sanitary pads, post-partum dressings and incontinence pads, explained Brenda Mesa Fernández, head of sales at Arthis.

By 2022, they are aiming for revenues of around USD 9 million, a level three times higher than in their first year of operation. To this end, they plan to open a third production line for anatomical pads in the second or third quarter of the year.

Arthis S.A. takes over the distribution of its five assortments to Cimex and Tiendas Caribe warehouses, from Guantanamo to Pinar del Rio.
