Turkish company General Nonwovens, exhibiting at Filtration 2012 in Booth 113, is a producer of polyester- and polypropylene-based spunbond nonwovens. The company has invested in a new production facility in Kilis, Turkey.

The new line is producing air-through fabrics that can be employed in the filtration and technical textile markets. General Nonwovens is also expanding the size of its factory in Gaziantep, which will allow more room to install new lines for spunbond and meltblown technologies.
