The hygiene market has been evolving form regional to global scales. Taking this into account, the producer of technical textiles Freudenberg Performance Materials Holding SE & Co. KG, Weinheim/Germany, has sold its South American branch of hygiene products to the manufacturer of nonwoven fabrics Fitesa, Gravataí/Brazil.
Concentrating efforts on other branches, Freudenberg will provide Fitesa with state-of-the-art production facility.
At Freudenberg Hygiene Brazil Ltda., Jacareí/Brazil, Freudenberg has been active in Brazil since 1985, with up to 100 employees. Authorities have yet to permit the transaction.
Freudenberg’s South American business in clothing as well as shoes and leathers will not be affected by this disposal.
