The total development cost of the Green Factory in Cambodia is approximately US$20 million. The Green Factory was completed by the end of 2012 and has commenced trial operation in the first quarter of 2013. The total area of the Green Factory is approximately 99,159m2. The design concept of the Green Factory was originated from the idea of energy saving and emission reduction from the use of environmental friendly building material, natural lighting facilities and temperature control. The Green Factory is well-equipped with numbers of Germany-imported automatic weaving machines and equipment to expand the capacity of the symbols of green eco-friendly clothing products. Only the Green Factory contains 700 workers and produces 250,000 sweaters per month. The Green Factory currently produces mainly sweaters and socks. The Green Factory will enhance the total sweaters production capacity of the group by 20%. Upon full operation of our Green Factory, we expect to improve our product mix in order to increase our profit margins.
Mr. Henry Sung, Chairman of Addchance Holdings Limited said, 'Our green factory in Cambodia marks the strenuous efforts of the group in creating a more environmental friendly and a better environment for the industry development. As a pioneer in the green sweaters knitting and dyeing industry, we will continue to further invent and develop in order to increase our production efficiency under the reuse, reduce and recycle environment protection concept. We expect the Green Factory will be able to drive more demand from our world-renowned European and other overseas clients which will become our core drive of growth in future.'
Our green factory, which was inspired by our customer, Marks and Spencer, was established under the concept of reuse, reduce and recycle. By using environmental friendly materials and implementing green production process, we aim to achieve better energy conservation and minimize daily disposals. The group's gross profit margin has been increased to approximately 33.0% from 23.6% in the first half of 2013. Cambodia enjoyed import tariff concessions from Europe and Japan which further strengthens our competitive advantages in the industry.
Against the backdrop of surging raw material prices and uncertain global economic environment, we believe the Green Factory can further strengthen our competitive advantage in capturing more orders from the countries that impose strict regulations of environment protection such as Europe, Australia and Japan. Along with the commencement of operation of the Green Factory, the Group is going to launch new product with higher average selling price that helps to optimize our overall pricing strategy.
