At the beginning of 2016, Spuntech Industries reaffirmed its commitment to the nonwovens industry by starting up a new advanced spunlace line in North Carolina. The new line, which is the company’s second in Roxboro, NC, has more than doubled Spuntech’s North American capacity. Spuntech first expanded into Roxboro, NC, in 2006. The company also operates two lines at a site in Galilee, Israel, and another in Shamir, Israel.
In 2016, the company reported very positive results, with sales of $138 million, according to director of sales and marketing John Rank.
“Spuntech continued its long term successful growth and additional increased growth is expected in 2017 with the new capacity in North America,” he says. “The new line is not only providing premium high quality spunlace fabrics but has additional and unique capabilities.”
Spuntech continues its focus on growth in specialty engineered and value-added spunlace fabrics with more emphasis on sustainable products. While a high percentage of its sales, both from its U.S. operation and its Israeli site, are conducted in the wipes segment, the company has been successful in developing new products outside of wipes.
Currently, Spuntech’s sales are split between North America, South America, Europe and Asia, where it serves wet and dry wipes, medical, hygiene, diaper, technical, filtration and engineered fabrics markets. Spuntech continues to review opportunities in emerging markets to further its global expansion, Rank adds.
