Bahrain Nonwovens To Launch Spunbond Lines

January 1, 2008

Bahrain Nonwovens, based in Manama in the Kingdom of Bahrain, plans to build and operate new spunbond lines.

Bahrain Nonwovens, based in Manama in the Kingdom of Bahrain, plans to build and operate new spunbond lines. The first line will produce spunbond polypropylene nonwovens targeting the industrial, agricultural and hygienic sectors using newly developed Galileo technology from Galileo Group’s Spunbond Engineering Division in Italy. This new capacity will target growing demand in the Gulf and Middle East regions and also supply growing demand for these structures in Europe and North America.

Bahrain Nonwovens is the first company in the Gulf region to build a state-of-the-art spunbond polypropylene manufacturing facility. Bahrain and the U.S. signed a Free Trade agreement in 2006.

Bahrain Nonwovens’ initial line is expected to be commercial in the first quarter of 2009.
