German nonwovens producer Sandler reported sales of €322 million in 2019, a year in which it celebrated in 140th anniversary, invested millions in its sites in Germany and the U.S. and increased its employee count to 880 worldwide. During the past year, Sandler employees in Schwarzenbach and Perry, GA, developed new nonwoven solutions, steadily expanding the product range and the company’s position as a partner to international customers.
In 2019, the company again invested heavily. A double-digit million Euro amount went into the expansion of the headquarters in Schwarzenbach where two new nonwovens manufacturing lines increased production capacity in technical applications and are the basis for the expansion of business activities.
Sandler is also gradually expanding its U.S. subsidiary into a competence center for nonwovens manufacturing. To the northwest of the existing company building, the new 135,000 square foot building has taken shape in recent months. In the coming weeks, the assembly of an additional manufacturing line for nonwovens for hygiene applications will begin here. Start of production is scheduled for autumn this year.
