The nonwovens manufacturer Sandler AG, Schwarzenbach a.d. Saale/Germany, once again increased its annual sales in 2017 to € 319 million (+11 %). With a positive global economy, growth was recorded in all business areas. Innovations were presented e.g. for acoustically effective nonwovens, high-performance absorbent nonwovens, filtration materials and products for the hygiene industry. The number of employees has increased by 50 to 820.
The USA is Sandler's most important non-European market. After production of Sandler nonwovens “made in USA” went into operation in autumn 2016 at the site in Perry, GA/USA, all the signs pointed to growth and further development in 2017 here too.
Sandler is currently investing around € 5.5 million in the modernization of its administrative buildings in Schwarzenbach.
