The Jesus Feliu Leyva N0 2 cigar factory, whose production is fully exported, is not alone the biggest of its type in the northeastern Cuban province of Holguin, but the pride of its staffers who bet on the variety and top quality of its products.
That factory, that is one of the biggest in the country, uses leaves brought from Pinar del Rio province, in western Cuba.
Miguel Castro Hidalgo runs the 438 workers working in that cigar factory, out of which 70 percent are women; with an average age that goes from 31 to 33 years.
Castro Hidalgo explained that the factory uses some systems aimed at improving work, among them the system for the administration of quality - which is duly certified there; the system of environmental administration; as well as that of security, health at the workplace, and that of human capital; all what seeks at reaching a comprehensive administration system.
The factory keeps working under the work achievement parameters, and in addition to the sense of belonging, the workers are well paid, either in Cuban peso and hard currency.
So far in the year, they have exceeded the physical plan by 120 percent, and by 125 percent in values; that's why, it is a good sign on the meeting of its economic administration at the end of 2015.
A tour around the factory was a good excuse to share with workers and bosses there; indeed a privilege to admire the work done there and the top quality of the cigar rolled there, and their zeal of selling all its varied production in the foreign market.
