Ahlstrom To Keep Thermalbond Business Active

August 1, 2007

Lines acquired from Fiberweb in Bethune purchase.

Ahlstrom has decided to continue production of thermalbonded Novonette nonwovens, which it acquired during its purchase of Fiberweb’s spunlace buisness in May 2007. The thermal bonded nonwovens are made in Bethune, SC, where spunlace, caustic entangled cotton and sonic laminate products for wipes are also made. Through various previous ownerships, the production lines in Bethune have supplied Novonette nonwoven fabric for over 40 years.  There has been large customer support for this technology which has allowed Ahlstrom to continue to supply customers from these production lines.
