The company has continued to focus heavily in global markets and has seen significant progress in relationships forged in the Central and South American markets as well as developing relationships in Asia, according to director of sales and marketing John Rank.
While a large percentage of Spuntech’s revenue portfolio comes from the wipes segment, the company is continuing to gain traction in several markets including household, hygiene, diapers and medical. Therefore, the company’s approach to technical innovations and premium tier fabrics continue to propel Spuntech’s long term strategy. With over 350 employees worldwide and five lines in Israel and the U.S., Spuntech is driving spunlace technologies through customer needs and industry demands.
Technical capabilities are continuing to grow under guidance of Ron Broshi, vice president of product development. As each spunlace line within Spuntech’s portfolio was developed to enable additional technical advancements, the product development team has been creating fabrics that continue to drive spunlace advances for new applications and new markets. For example, using proprietary technology, Spuntech is able to create engineered fabrics with multi-layer functionality enabling unique benefits across various markets.
As champions of sustainability, Spuntech Industries has been leading the charge with natural fiber development for over two decades. With the increased demand from consumers for environmentally friendly and sustainable products, the company continues to be on the forefront of changing markets.
Partnering with industry leaders, the company has been able to develop 100% natural spunlace materials working with fibers such as cotton, flax and hemp. Furthermore, the product development team has been doing work with a circular economy lens by including waste stream fibers such as recycled polyester from soda bottles or cotton fibers from T-shirts.
With Spuntech’s strong foundation in high quality, customized fabrics along with their forward vision for sustainable solutions; the company has big plans for the future.
CEO,Hezi Nissan, in regards to Spuntech’s strategy moving forward, states, “As markets evolve, so must we. There are many paths to be successful in the market and staying true to who we are as a conviction led company is key.”
