Ahlstrom To Run Cotton In Green Bay

May 10, 2006

Ahlstrom, has invested in new capabilities for the production of cotton-containing spunlace products at its Green Bay, WI, plant. As a quick reaction to market demand for cotton-containing materials, Ahlstrom upgraded current systems and installed capital equipment in order to manufacture materials that use the natural fiber. Ahlstrom has become one of the leading suppliers to the wipes market mainly through organic growth with proprietary technology as demonstrated in its spunlace composites line at its Windsor Locks, CT, facility commercialized in 2004.  The acquisition of the Green Bay Nonwovens plant later that same year has further increased Ahlstrom's wipes production capability.
