Will provide hygiene topsheet materials for Middle East, North Africa markets.

Pantex International has established a new subsidiary, Pantex-MENA, serving the Middle-East and North Africa. Located in the United Arab Emirates, Pantex-MENA will produce a new, proprietary feminine hygiene topsheet that combines the benefits of both perforated film and traditional nonwovens. Additionally, Pantex-MENA offers a variety of apertured products, derived from thermoplastic resins, for the Middle-Eastern and North African markets.

“We are proud to launch the new Pantex-MENA, as we believe these regions will be key growth areas for the hygiene market,” said Jim Cree, Pantex CEO. “Our new feminine hygiene technology will revolutionize products currently available in these regions.”

The Pantex-MENA plant is now partially operational and already producing material for the regional markets. Full production is expected to begin in August 2008.
