PGI Adds Spunbond Line

June 21, 2006

Polymer Group, North Charleston, SC,  has added a state-of-the-art spunbond line at its  Mooresville, NC plant, which will add approximately 50 jobs to the 150-employee operation. The plant expansion represents approximately a $40 million investment. The materials produced on the new line will be softer and lighter and have improved barrier qualities for use in diapers and industrial filtration applications, according to the company.

"The company chose North Carolina for this latest expansion because of its skilled work force and access to local research and educational facilities, the growing industry cluster of nonwovens resources in the state, and a business-friendly environment," said Mike Hale, vice president and general manager of U.S. nonwovens.
In other news, PGI is moving its headquarters to Charlotte, NC from North Charleston, S.C.

The move brings together 100 employees in leadership, administration and other positions into one location. The new facility is expected to enable it to better serve its customers and accommodate future growth. The new headquarters is slated to open by August and will have approximately 100 employees, including the company's senior leadership, finance, purchasing, human resources, sales, customer service and other administrative personnel. With the corporate move, PGI will employ approximately 450 workers in the state.
