Berry Global Group, Inc. will invest in a specialty meltblown asset to produce high efficiency filtration media serving the Asia markets. Current projections are for commercial production to start in 2019.
This investment, which will be a part of the company's Health, Hygiene, and Specialties Division, is targeted to meet forecasted market and customer growth and will be focused on premium applications in the Room Air Purification, Industrial Face Mask and Cabin Air Filtration markets.
"The filtration market is growing rapidly and we are excited to expand our capacity to accommodate the growing markets and increased demand. Our commitment is strong to this market and the entire nonwovens space. Our investment in meltblown capacity is the next step in advancing our market leading position in filtration solutions," says Scott Tracey, president of Berry's Health, Hygiene, and Specialties Division.
Berry will showcase its filtration technology at the upcoming FSA 2018 exhibition in Shanghai, China next month. In addition to providing information on the new meltblown line, Berry will showcase its patented Meltex technology for air filtration as well as Typar and Reemay for liquid filtration applications.
