January 21, 2011

7000 tons of capacity will target bituminous roofing market.

Freudenberg Politex is adding a polyester spunbond line to its Russian facility targeting the construction market. The roofing and construction specialist first established its Russian site, in the Nizhiniy Novgorod region, in 2004 and started production there in 2006. Since then, a line capable of making geotextile material has been added to the site.
The new spunbond line, representing a €20 million investment, will come onstream in the first half of 2012, allowing Freudenberg Politex to become a major Russian producer of nonwovens for construction manufactured with both spunbond and staple technology, either standard or reinforced. This important investment will add more than 7000 tons of polyester spunbond nonwovens to be sold as backings for bituminous roofing membranes and for other speciality applications in the construction industry.

The spunbonded line will be based on state-of-the-art proprietary technology, fulfilling the group's mission and strategy based on the core values of customer orientation, innovation and long-term orientation, according to executives. Furthermore it embodies the commitment of Freudenberg Politex to sustainable development with the responsible use of economic, social and natural resources.
