BBA Fiberweb will construct a new airlaid production at its Korma facility near Monza, Italy. The project includes the next  generation of flexible and modular airlaid technology, developed by M&J Fibretech, a division of Neumag, and represents a $20 million investment for BBA.

"Fiberweb already operates  a premier airlaid manufacturing facility in Asia and this new European investment will allow us to offer outstanding service, quality and flexibility to our customers on another continent.  Synergies between the two manufacturing sites will significantly support the success of the Italian invesmtent."
    BBA Fiberweb currently operates an M&J line in Tianjin, China, which came onstream in 2002.
