American Nonwovens expanding capacity.

American Nonwovens Expanding Capacity

A recent increase of its spunbonded and resin bonded capacity has been instituted by American Nonwovens, Vernon, AL. The capacity of the spunbonded line at its Vernon facility was actually doubled, president Loren Collins told nonwovens industry. "It is currently onstream," he said, "We are just working on the final debugging and system checks."

The company also started a satellite operation in the Greenville, SC area late last year; it has also added a second resin bonded line to that operation. Mr. Collins said both expansions are the result of new product developments and the continuing strength of existing markets.

American Nonwovens is one of the newer companies to break into nonwovens; its resin bonded production was started in the early 1980's, but it only got involved in spunbonding and needlepunching in the last two years.
