Freudenberg Politex Enters Russia

January 11, 2005

The Freudenberg Politex Group is establishing a nonwovens production facility in Russia's Nizhniy Novgorod region. The newly formed subsidiary Freudenberg Politex OOO, founded in September 2004, will begin renovating a recently purchased building to house production equipment in early 2005. An 8000-ton-per-year polyester-based production line will start up during the first six months of 2005. Output will mainly meet the demands of the Russian bituminous roofing market where Freudenberg Politex has been operating for more than 10 years. The Russian operation will be led by Andrey Deko.
