Ahlstrom To Expand in Filtration
Published February 2, 2005
Ahlstrom will expand its capacity for solvent-treated filtration materials sold primarily to the automotive filtration market. The expansion will be accomplished during the next three years through a series of small investments across the global Ahlstrom network where these products are made. The timed phase-in of this systematic capacity increase will be matched to customer demand for these products and will be accomplished without major investment. Ahlstrom has already achieved expansion at its Turin, Italy site through a modest investment on its saturation lines, which increased capacity 15% immediately.
