With sales of €322 million, the nonwovens manufacturer Sandler AG, Schwarzenbach a.d. Saale/Germany again reports a successful year in 2019 (sales 2018: €322 million).
These positive year-end results create the basis for further growth in the dynamic market environment of the nonwovens industry. During the past year, new nonwovens solutions were developed in Schwarzenbach and Perry, GA/USA, and the product range and the company’s position as a partner to international customers had been expanded.
In 2019, the company again invested heavily. A double-digit million euro amount went into the expansion of its headquarters in Schwarzenbach: 2 new nonwovens manufacturing lines increase production capacity in technical applications and are the basis for the expansion of business activities.
Sandler is also gradually expanding its US subsidiary – Sandler Nonwoven Corporation in Perry – into a competence center for nonwovens manufacturing. To the northwest of the existing company building, the new 135,000 ft² (12,540 m²) building has taken shape in recent months. In the coming weeks, the assembly of a further manufacturing line for nonwovens for hygiene applications will commence here. Start of production is scheduled for autumn 2020.
