EDANA Training Courses Head to India, Again

February 21, 2008

Classes to be held in late 2008.

EDANA, in collaboration with BCH, will again hold a nonwovens training course in the dynamic region of India. EDANA has not yet announced the dates for the training courses but did say they will take place in Delhi in connection with the IIT Nonwovens and Technical Textiles Conference, scheduled for November 11-13.
EDANA held its most recent Indian-based training courses, also with BCH as a partner, in December 2007. These two-day training courses provided an opportunity for India’s newcomers to the industry to quickly gain a complete understanding of the various technologies, processes, raw materials and market aspects of nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products.

Pierre Wiertz, general manager of EDANA, said, “With the training courses we offer our member companies the opportunity of training their local staff and enable potential investors to understand the distinct character of nonwovens as a capital-intensive industry, as well as highlighting opportunities and options in nonwovens technologies. In turn this allows them to make a more enlightened choice, thereby possibly avoiding mistakes that can negatively impact markets, for example. lead to overcapacities etc... in the development of nonwovens in India.”

India, with a population of over a billion people, of which above 300 million are middle class with high living standards and significant purchasing power, has the potential to develop a healthy, competitive and open nonwovens market that provides opportunities to both domestic and foreign direct investments. EDANA has already seen a growth in nonwovens applications such as automotive, interlinings, agriculture and medical nonwovens. Geotextiles, especially, are expected to grow rapidly since over the next five years.
