Poly-Bond to invest further in expansion plans.

Despite the fact that an $18 million investment program is already underway at Poly-Bond, Waynesboro, VA, the U.S. subsidiary of the 19th largest non-wovens manufacturer Dominion Textile, the company last month revealed plans to invest an additional $5 million as part of that expansion, with the possibility of additional investment in the near future.

The additional $5 million will enable the company to add a state-of-the-art winder/slitter to its Waynesboro facility, giving Poly-Bond access to much narrower width materials and electronically set knives for very specific end uses. Another $2.5 million is also expected to be invested for the upgrade of a third 3.2 meter line (the original investment already included the upgrade of two of Poly-Bond's eight lines).

The original investment program, announced last November, allocated $18 million for the upgrading of current capacity and transfer to a new facility under construction in Waynesboro.

The expansion is proceeding on schedule; the actual building is complete and the first line will begin moving next month. Poly-Bond is also considering whether or not to upgrade its 4.2 meter line in addition to the three 3.2 meter lines; it will also make a decision in the next six months on whether or not to add melt blowing capacity to this line.
