Texel is investing $15 million in a new DILO production line

April 1, 2013

The various production and finishing equipment for needlepunch nonwoven materials are currently being installed in the new extension of close to 35,000 square feet in the Sainte-Marie (Quebec) facilities, especially designed to hold the different components of the production line. This new DILO-brand equipment, which is at the technological cutting-edge, will allow Texel to increase its production capacities by more than 7 metric tons of transformed fibers per year and will, among other uses, allow for the manufacturing of products with a width of 5.25 meters, the largest in the needlepunch geotextile industry in North America.

This investment is part of Texel’s plans to modernize its equipment so as to develop its six major product platforms. Increasing its overall production capacity will thus allow the company to meet the constant demands from the geotextile, industrial and automotive market segments and to open the way for new business opportunities in these segments in Canada and the United States. Through this investment, Texel has confirmed its position in the geosynthetic market in Quebec, Canada and the northeastern United States.
