Fiberweb’s Line II expansion project is now complete and the production line is currently coming onstream. Many government officials from Tianjin and TEDA attended a grand opening ceremony on June 20, where Daniel Dayan, Fiberweb CEO, and Derek Chan, president of Fiberweb Asia, were present.
Fiberweb (China) Airlaid Company Limited was incorporated into TEDA, Tianjin, PRC as a Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise (WOFE) in 1999. Fiberweb invested $68 million to import and install its first world-class, state-of-the-art machine in China to manufacture high-tech, superabsorbent airlaid materials. Application of these airlaid materials is mainly for wipes and feminine hygiene products. The company has progressively increased its production capacity and rapidly developed its business since commencement of commercial production in the fourth quarter 2001.
