J.H. Ziegler GmbH has acquired Quadrant Natural Fiber Composites GmbH, a manufacturer of natural fiber nonwovens based in Lambrecht, Germany.

"With this expanded portfolio, we aim to strengthen our position in the automotive sector as a supplier of innovative nonwoven solutions,"said Peter Hartwig, managing director of J.H. Ziegler. "Natural fiber nonwovens are frequently used by customers who are already using our microfiber nonwovens as acoustic insulating materials.
