Lenzing will be on hand at SINCE in Shanghai from Oct. 23-25 to present innovative botanic fiber solutions. Tencel and Lenzing Viscose combine ecological responsibility with functionality. The increasing interest in sustainable fibers for nonwoven applications paves the way for Lenzing to pursue a growth strategy with a strong focus on Asia.
Lenzing has been successfully established on the Asian market for many years.
“We already attached great importance to this emerging up-and-coming region at a very early stage and have been manufacturing high quality fibers at PT South Pacific Viscose, our Indonesian site, for three decades. During this time we have continually expanded in order to meet the future demands placed upon the value chain," says Wolfgang Plasser, vice president and general manager business unit nonwoven fibers.
The Indonesian subsidiary of Lenzing operates five production lines and is the largest viscose fiber plant in the world at the present time. The second production facility in Asia for Lenzing Viscose is located in Nanjing, China.
“We have been setting new quality standards in China since the plant first commenced operations in 2007. This
site is also continuously expanding in order to fulfill the ongoing increase in demand on the Chinese market," says Plasser.
Lenzing fibers are naturally absorbent and pure like the cellulose they are made from. Tencel meets even the most stringent demands, due to the fact that the fiber cleans reliably and is particularly soft to sensitive skin. Lenzing fibers are ideally suited for demanding applications such as wipes, facial masks as well as hygiene and medical products. In addition, they optimize the performance of technical applications.
Tencel and Lenzing Viscose are based on the renewable raw material wood and are completely biodegradable after use.
“In the spirit of ensuring a future worth living for coming generations, sustainability is more than just a trend," says Elisabeth Stanger, marketing director of the business unit nonwoven fibers. “Consumers are relying on high quality products which combine performance with ecological responsibility. We are supporting this development with the goal of strengthening the trustworthy brand image of Tencel and Lenzing Viscose along the value chain within the context of an intensive cooperation with our customers."
The Lenzing team will be available at booth no. N10 at SINCE.
