Nonwovens Manufacturer Ahlstrom

November 14, 2005

ITALY: Ahlstrom Corp. will invest $11 million in a rebuilding program for one of the company’s manufacturing lines at its Turin plant. The production line will be reconfigured in order to increase its available product offerings. In addition to existing specialty paper products, the line will support the fast-growing nonwovens market with products designed specifically for the engine filtration market, as well as medical, wipes and general industrial applications.
In other company news, Ahlstrom is constructing a new composite nonwoven manufacturing line at its Windsor Locks, CT plant. The additional capacity from the new line will be targeted primarily to the consumer and industrial wipe markets in the U.S. and globally, but will also have the production flexibility to meet changing consumer demands in other nonwoven markets, executives said. Restructuring at both sites is expected to be completed by mid-2004.
“Our commitment to the nonwovens market continues and this investment (in) Windsor Locks shows our dedication to satisfying both North American and global customers wherever they are located,” said Juha Rantanen, president and chief executive officer, Ahlstrom Corp.
