Thrace Buys NSC Line

February 14, 2008

The line features an Excelle card and SCADA system, as well as NSCs ProDyn technology.

Thrace Linq Inc., Summerville, SC—a member of The Thrace Plastics Group, a subsidiary of Greece-based Thrace Plastics Co. S.A.— recently placed an order for a needling line from NSC nonwoven. The line features an Excelle card and SCADA Expert Supervision system, as well as NSC’s ProDyn technology.

The line, which is suitable for the production of light- and medium-weight nonwoven fabrics, will add 7000 tons per year of capacity to the Summerville plant.

Thrace acquired the well-established agrotextile and geotextile divisions of Linq in May 2007. Thrace Linq continues to manufacture woven and nonwoven polypropylene technical fabrics. The new NSC nonwoven line will enable the company to expand its presence in the U.S. market.
