As a strategically important foundation for further growth in the North American market, the manufacturer of nonwovens, Fibertex Nonwovens A/S, Aalborg/Denmark, has acquired a newly built spunlacing production site with an annual capacity of 14,000 tons and room to expand with additional production lines in South Carolina/USA. It is a good complement to Fibertex Nonwovens’ existing site in Illinois/USA.
The seller is the nonwovens manufacturer, Mogul Nonwovens and Composites Ltd., Gaziantep/Turkey, which established the production site in South Carolina in 2016. The plant has a production line with the latest spunlacing technology, where the fibers of the nonwovens are entangled using high-speed jets of water. Fibertex Nonwovens has many years of positive experience with this technology, which is increasingly gaining traction in the nonwovens industry worldwide.
