The complex, valued at more than €30 million, will produce air-through-bonded nonwovens for the hygiene market. The plant will occupy approximately 50% of the 50,000-square-meter facility. Equipped with state-of-the-art air-through bonded and spooling lines, the site will allow Texsus to expand its overall nonwovens production capacity by at least 50% and its spooling breadth to 100% of its nonwovens volume output.
While Texsus’ headquarters and largest plant will remain in Tuscany, Italy, as the heart of the group for the manufacturing of nonwoven acquisition distribution layer and frontal tape, the new Polish plant is expected to be up and running by the first quarter 2020.
The company’s research and development department will continue to be located in Italy, continuing the company’s precept of leading through innovation. Texsus has built its worldwide reputation over a 30-year history as an air through bonded manufacturer, with a commanding position in the EMEA market. Its most famous brands are Acquitex, Multifunctional, Acquitex and Vortex acquisitions and distribution layer as well as the Softex liner brand.
Along with the expansion of its high loft manufacturing capacity, Texsus has recently become capable of combining distinct layers of materials to create multi-functional products. A successful example of this is the nonwoven, frontal tape, Sloopy, able to combine excellent performance, extreme softness and eye-catching 3D design in an environmentally sustainable structure.
