Johns Manville has begun operating a new nonwoven spunbond mat production line in Luoyang, China. Located in the Henan province, this new state-of-the-art line underscores JM’s commitment to its roofing, specialty and geotextiles customers. “We are delighted to inaugurate this major investment, which demonstrates our continued commitment to our valued customers and the global nonwoven market,” said Zain Mahmood, vice president and general manager, Construction Materials and Systems. “We especially look forward to supporting the growth plans – and the accompanying spunbond-mat needs – of our customers in Asia and the Middle East.”
