Fibertex Personal Care Upgrading Denmark Line

December 7, 2016

Investment will yield increased capacity, softer product line

Fibertex Personal Care is upgrading one of its existing lines in Aalborg, Denmark, parent company Schouw & Co. has reported. The uprade will add additional capacity on the line, which has been taken offline for the duration of upgrade, and allow it to make the same super-soft spunmelt nonwovens currently made at the company's Malaysian facility. The upgrade is expected to be complete by the end of the year, allowing Fibertex Personal Care to supply the material from Europe beginning next year. Until then, the company has reportedly stockpiled nonwovens to compensate for the temporary line closure.

In other investment news, Fibertex Personal Care's printing arm—Innowo Print—is adding a second line at its facility in Germany in response to increased European demand. This subsidiary has also completed work on its first Malaysian line and is currently building up a customer base in the region. Also in Malaysia, Fibertex Personal Care's latest investment, a new line and a new factory in Nilai outside Kuala Lumpur, is scheduled to start operation in the second quarter of 2017.
