No injuries were reported and production and customer deliveries were not impacted.

Crews from local fire stations were called this week to a fire at Freudenberg Nonwovens’ facility in Greetland, Halifax, U.K. According to the company, no injuries were reported and production and customer deliveries were not impacted. The fire was caused by an arsonist who ignited ten tons of textile waste coated with carbon material. “The youth who set the fire was caught and will be tried in a juvenile court,” explained Christof Schroeder, manager of corporate communications for Freudenberg. “The only damage is some decoloration to a metal wall of the building." Freudenberg’s Halifax, U.K. plant specializes in the manufacture of air conditioning filters.
