December 11, 2007

Dawsonville pilot acitivies to move to Neumunster.

Oerlikon Neumag, a business unit of Oerlikon Textile, will consolidate spunbond and meltblown research and development efforts at its headquarters in Neumünster, Germany. Under this plan, Oerlikon will move its Dawsonville, GA-based pilot activities, acquired through the purchase of Nordson Fiber Systems (formerly J&M Labs) in October 2006, to Neumünster.
"With this move we do not only concentrate our R&D activities at our headquarters but we also provide our customers fully integrated state-of-art pilot facilities,” said Tarik Vardag, Head of Oerlikon Neumag.
By mid 2008, a J&M meltblown beam and a second spunbond beam will be added to the existing Spunbond Solution Center in Neumünster allowing full demonstration of SMS spunbond materials. The pilot facility in Dawsonville will remain active through March 2008 to complete previously committed programs requiring usage of the multi-beam spunbond and meltblown pilot equipment
