Gulsan, one of Turkey’s major nonwovens producers, reports its latest investment, a 20,000 ton spunmelt line, came onstream at its Gaziantep headquarters at the end of 2015. The 4.2-meter, six-beam Reicofil 4+ brought Gulsan’s global capacity to 105,000 tons and will largely serve the hygiene and medical markets.
“We invest in state-of-the-art technology and move to meet the requirements of the market and our customers,” says Mehmet Kuyucu, general manager, nonwovens and films. “Gulsan is fully committed to top quality and the utmost customer satisfaction with a focus on innovation.”
In October 2014, Gulsan completed its first foreign investment, a 20,000 ton Reicofil line near Cairo, Egypt. This new line supports Gulsan’s future growth in the industry and other regions and reinforces the company’s position as one of the leading manufacturers of spunmelt materials in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.
Kuyucu would not comment on where or when Gulsan’s next investment would take place.
“Our strategy is to support Gulsan’s future growth in the industry and in the region with highly sophisticated and up-to-date production technologies to its business partners and reinforces the company’s position as one of the leading manufacturers of spunmelt materials in EMEA region.”
