“This new spunbond line, along with our expansions around the globe, is part of a strategic growth plan,” said PGI’s chief executive officer James Schaeffer. “It’s all part of growing strong and growing smart. We are growing strong by adding capacity where it’s needed. And we’re growing smart by driving technology and innovation.”
“The company chose North Carolina for this latest expansion because of its skilled workforce 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, PGI’s vice president and general manager, U.S. nonwovens.
PGI is currently relocating its company headquarters from N. Charleston, SC to Charlotte, NC.
