JM Brings New Spunbond Line Onstream

October 10, 2006

Building and specialty products manufacturer Johns Manville (JM) has launched a new polyester spunbond production line at its Johns Manville GmbH operation in Bobingen, Germany. Adoption of the latest technology reportedly allows the production line to achieve faster manufacturing and the production of denser and lighter carrier materials for roofing systems. In addition, the new production line requires less energy and resources and also reduces noise and exhaust gas pollution.

Representing an investment of more than €30 million, the new production line has a capacity in excess of 10.000 tons per year and is increasing spunbond capacity at the Bobingen site by more than 30%. "Apart from the increased production capacity, the new production line allows for an expansion of our DuraSpun product range by a new generation of differentiated polyester spunbond products with reduced area weight and optimized application properties," said Enno Henze, European business manager for Johns Manville’s construction materials and systems business. "As a result, we considerably strengthen the leadership position of JM as a provider of premium spunbond solutions to the European roofing systems marketplace."
