Sales increased slightly thanks to the start up of the Italian nonwovens producer’s first foreign investment—a 15,000-ton-per-year, 3.2-meter Reicofil 4s spunmelt/spunbond line that came onstream in Poland during the third quarter of 2015.
In 2015, sales increased from €145 million to €146.6 million and this figure is expected to climb as the Polish line achieves full utilization in 2016.
Looking ahead, Union is exploring further opportunities of investment either in Poland or other regions, consolidating its reputation among its customers and supporting growth, providing state-of-the-art technology and as always focusing on ultra lightweight nonwovens and special products.
In fact, the development of new specialties is another growth strategy for Union Industries. In 2015, the company introduced to the market a new product range of spunbond and spunmelt nonwovens that are softer and bulkier than the market standard, with unique engraving patterns, available either in Italy and Poland.
