Albany strengthens its global commitment to quality in products and services to the nonwovens industry.

Albany International - Engineered Fabrics is well-known to Nonwoven manufacturers around the world for its dedication to quality, product innovation and reliability in the woven plastic forming fabrics and metal wires we supply. With a firmly established Total Quality Assurance program in place internally, using the philosophy of Dr. Edward Deming, our customers have developed a faith in Albany's philosophy toward the markets we serve.

Work is well under way to increase the uniformity of our products by using the Statistical Process Control method. This method has allowed us to take our products - which were already the finest available in the industry - and give them even more consistency in the quality of the workmanship. This represents a real savings to our customers, since the uniformity of the product need no longer be a variable in their manufacturing processes.

Another benefit of our new philosophy is in our communications with our customers. In today's world, it is critical that your entire organization is set up to be in tune with the customer's needs; Albany International has set up programs for information exchange and cross training for all employees to be sure that this goal is met. The benefits to the customer are not only increased uniformity in our products, but also in our ability to assist with process problems in a timely manner.

A commitment to Research and Development has been Albany International's strength through our years of serving Nonwovens producers. The first conductive synthetic forming fabrics were developed by Albany to replace metal wires to the dry forming, diaper and spun bond processes. We have numerous products that have been created from joint Research and Development efforts with our customers that are exclusive to the individual nature of their process or product.

This is the kind of response we're committed to. And this responsiveness is possible because quality - in product and service - has long been a trademark of Albany International. It's a trademark that is further strengthened by our commitment to Dr. Deming's philosophies.
