PGI to upgrade Nanhai, China operation

June 18, 2013

New site will offer state-of-the-art chemical bonded products.

Polymer Group will replace its existing facility in Nanhai, China with a new plant that will enable the company to expand its manufacturing capacity for high quality nonwoven products for the global hygiene and healthcare markets.

The investment will allow PGI to expand  production of chemical bond products for hygiene applications. This investment is intended to meet the growing needs of key customers in the region. PGI has operated in Nanhai for more than 15 years and  has been instrumental in leading the growth of the nonwovens industry into China. The company will continue to expand its manufacturing footprint as it serves the growth and innovation needs of its customers.

Also in China, PGI  operates a state-of-the-art plant in Suzhou, China that serves the healthcare and hygiene markets. Its most recent investment in the Suzhou facility was completed in mid 2013.

“PGI is committed to continued growth and market leadership in the hygiene and healthcare markets we serve globally,” says outgoing PGI CEO, Veronica (Ronee) M. Hagen. “Market growth remains strong in Asia for our nonwoven materials and expanding our manufacturing capacity through the Nanhai facility is just one example of our plans to meet our customers’ needs well into the future.“

The company’s Nanhai facility will combine the benefits of PGI’s current and new manufacturing technologies and is expected to be complete by the first half of 2016 with no disruptions to customers.

PGI’s investment will be supported by The Nanhai District People’s Government, a key partner to PGI in its successful operation in the region.
