Jacob Holm is investing more than €2 million in its Asturias, Spain production facility. The site, which was acquired from DuPont in 2012, manufactures Sontara spunlace nonwovens. The investment, which demonstrates Jacob-Holm's commitment to economic development in Asturias, Spain, will increase the number of products made at the site using newly installed production technology.
The new asset allows Jacob Holm to pursue increasingly broad technological growth by providing advanced capabilities to tailor the performance of its products with more accuracy within a broader potential specification set. This cutting-edge advancement offers customers access to a significantly expanded range of customization options and new fabric properties for performance critical applications. The impressive quality upgrade is being reflected in growing production demands, which has prompted the hiring of four new Asturias employees.
Jacob Holm is pleased to continue to invest and grow business in Asturias in partnership with local authorities and to develop proprietary technology that appeals to the quality-conscious consumer.
