December 7, 2011

Investment will serve filtration unit.

Ahlstrom is taking another step in expanding in Asia by setting up a warehouse facility for its Filtration Business Area in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

The investment will allow Ahlstrom to better serve its customers in India and shorten lead times in the fast growing local market. Ahlstrom will mainly supply transportation filtration material, but also gas turbine and dust collection filtration markets through the
warehouse.

“This is another firm step in executing our growth strategy in Asia. Last year we acquired a filtration materials plant in China and now we are targeting India. We are happy to be able to grow together with our customers,” states Tommi Björnman, executive vice president, Filtration Business Area.

Filtration accounts for about 20% of total net sales at Ahlstrom. The business area operates 11 plants worldwide, including Binzhou in China and Hyun Poong in South Korea.
