Plans include he construction of a 135,000-square-foot building that will house production and warehouse facilities. The new building will ultimately house a new manufacturing line for nonwovens targeting hygiene applications. The investment will create 70 new jobs in different departments at the Perry site.
Expanding its U.S. plant will enable Sandler to continue to grow in the local market. "Sandler nonwovens made in USA allow us to continuously develop and advance our longstanding business relationships to companies in the North American market. This investment is the next step towards establishing a competence center for nonwovens production here in Perry," says Tobias Baumgaertel, president of Sandler Nonwoven Corporation.
On occasion of a press conference, Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler, President & CEO of Sandler AG, thanked the authorities and institutions of the State of Georgia, Houston County and the City of Perry. Above all, however, he addressed the staff members of Sandler Nonwoven Corporation. “During the past three years, a great team has been assembled here. I would like to thank "Team Perry“ for their dedication, hard work, and loyalty to the company. We are proud to have you as part of the Sandler family.“
This investment is part of a larger corporate-wdie investment announced during the company's e 140th anniversary earlier this year. Over the next two years, Sandler plans to invest €90 million dollars at its sites in Germany and the U.S.
