Fitesa unveils details about ongoing expansion – investments taking place in all regions where company operates
PORTO ALEGRE, BRAZIL, November 12, 2020-
Following the investment announcement made in May, Fitesa announces more information about new equipment and debottlenecking/upgrade projects that will increase the company’s capacity by 55,000 MT/year.
Latin America will lead the capacity expansion with a new multibeam Reicofil 5 line to be installed in Cosmópolis (Brazil). Construction is in an advanced stage and the line will arrive in July 2021. Once this new line is installed the site will become the most advanced spunmelt nonwovens production location in the region. In Gravataí (Brazil), one upgraded and redesigned meltblown line started 3 months ago to produce N95 meltblown grades and help the fight against COVID19. In addition to the above mentioned line, one additional state of the art Reicofil meltblown equipment is being assembled to start before the end of 2020. The total investment in the region will increase Fitesa’s production capacity by 30,000 MT/year and triple the company’s pure meltblown supply availability, fulfilling the rising demand from the healthcare and hygiene markets.
