Sandler Adds To Technical Nonwovens

February 3, 2006

Sandler AG  is investing €25 million in its Schwarzenbach/Saale, Germany site to bolster its technical nonwovens operations.  This investment follows a smaller effort, valued at €10 million, to establish new technology for the production of ultra-fine nonwoven material, an important condition for future developments towards promising nanofiber technology.  
More than 50 % of Sandler AG’s turnover represents products younger than five years. This is based on a systematic development of new products and production methods, which is subject to an increasing cooperation with universities and textile research centers.
     The technical and hygiene markets are both extremely important to Sandler but there are many other markets of interest to the company. Sandler nonwovens, for example, are already used in 27 different car models, are increasingly accepted in vacuum cleaner filter bags, provide comfortable personal hygiene in wet wipes and are accepted in the furniture and mattress industry as upholstery materials. Sandler’s sales were €113 million in 2005.
