Fibertex Personal Care installing new nonwoven line in Malaysia, print line in USA

AARHUS, Denmark, September 8, 2020-

With an investment of DKK 250 million ($40 million) in two production lines – a speciality nonwovens line in Malaysia and a print line in the US – the Danish Fibertex Personal Care Group strengthens its position as supplier for the hygiene industry. The two production lines will increase the capacity in each of their respective business areas with more than 10% – both lines are expected to be running second half of 2021.

- Both of our business areas – nonwovens and print on nonwovens – are experiencing an increase in demand for speciality products and services. We have a strong position in these markets due to our portfolio. Combined with a steady growth in the Asian market, rising demand for print in the American market, and a changed market dynamic caused by COVID-19 makes the timing of the expansions just right, explains Group CEO Mikael Staal Axelsen, Fibertex Personal Care.
