Thrace LINQ has completed the installation of a new Andritz needlepunch nonwoven line in Summerville, SC.

An in-line tenter oven and calender, along with finished width capability beyond 20-feet are just a few of the features this equipment offers. “We are very proud of this cutting edge production line, and are excited to continue our growth here in Summerville” says Brian Sparks, general manager of Thrace LINQ. “This enhancement of capability and capacity will strengthen our competitive position and help us better serve our customers.”
