In 2017, Spuntech Industries continued its commitment to the nonwovens industry by continuing to bring new and innovative fabrics to the market with its new advanced spunlace line in North Carolina. The new line has more than doubled its North American capacity. Spuntech currently operates two spunlace lines at its facility in Roxboro, NC, which opened in 2006, and runs two lines at a site in Galilee, Israel, and another in Shamir, Israel.
In 2017, the company reported very positive results, with sales increasing to $168 million compared to $138 million in 2016 thanks to increased demand for premium spunlace products, according to director of sales & marketing John Rank. “Spuntech continued its long term successful growth and additional increased growth is expected in 2018. 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 sites, are conducted in the wipes segment, the company has been very 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 growth.
