Oerlikon Relocates Airlaid Business

July 17, 2007

Move to Neumunster to achieve better synergies with other segments.

Oerlikon Neumag has relocated its airlaid business segment from Denmark to the headquarters in Neumünster to be intensively interlinked with its other nonwoven segments and to be provided with its own development department. Oerlikon Neumag entered the airlaid machinery market in 2004 through the take-over of M&J Fibretech a/s and thus further expanded the nonwoven product portfolio. With M&J's Airlaid technology, air is exclusively used as a transport medium from the preparation of the raw material up to the web laying. Moreover, even with large production widths, the patented forming heads enable the production of nonwovens from 100% pulp or from a homogeneous mixture of different types of fibers as well as super absorbent powders. These nonwovens are mainly used for products in the hygiene industry. In order to secure the technological progress, Oerlikon Neumag is setting up its own development department for the airlaid segment in Neumünster. The airlaid laboratory in Horsens, Denmark, remains for customer trials.
