September 4, 2008

Two line operation planned for Statesville, NC.

Brazilian nonwovens producer Companhia Providencia has finalized Statesville, NC as the location of its U.S. nonwovens operation. Providencia announced last month it would build a two-line nonwovens operation in the southeast U.S. to position itself closer to its North American customer base. According to recent reports, the 215,000-square-foot facility will be built on a 43-acre lot. The two production lines, with a combined capacity of 40,000 tons, will begin operation in February 2009.
