“I see Northeastern Nonwovens as leveraging its strengths as a custom manufacturer of engineered, needlepunch nonwovens. What makes us unique is our ability to be flexible with customer demands, on-time delivery, small production runs or customer trials," says Roche. "Our real strengths are our technical and customer service focus and ability. We plan to leverage those strengths and expand our offerings to existing customers as well as new markets. We are only limited by the creativity of our customers’ hopes and wishes. If existing or new customers wish to enter into a conversation to develop unique and exciting new products, we are willing and able to partner with them and use all our resources to help us both be successful.”
