Spunmelt line will start up in SC in early 2011.

Companhia Providência is moving forward with a planned expansion into the U.S., the Brazilian company has announced this week.

Representing an $80 million investment, the expansion was announced in mid-2008 but was delayed due to concerns over the economy.
