October 14, 2013

Microglass fiber nonwovens capacity will target filtration applications.

Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway company and a leading manufacturer of premium-quality building, specialty and filtration products, has completed an expansion of its micro glass fiber nonwoven production for air filtration media in its plant in Wertheim, Germany. JM’s micro glass fiber nonwovens are used as top-performance media in HVAC filtration applications and also as aircraft insulation.
 
The company also recently announced an additional investment of €32 million in a state-of-the-art polyester spunbond line for filtration products at its production site in Berlin.
 
“The new capacity in Wertheim and the investment we are making in our Berlin facility are excellent examples of our commitment to the filtration industry,” says Enno Henze, senior vice president and general manager of JM’s Engineered Products Europe/Asia business. “These investments are part of a strategic plan to support the growing demand for high-end filtration nonwovens.”
