DS Fiber signs agreement.
NatureWorks LLC has signed a new agreement with European fiber manufacturer DS Fibers for the production of Ingeo fiber innovations. This is the third master license agreement to be inked for fiber production in 2008 and underlines NatureWorks' plan to grow its global Ingeo fiber manufacturing presence across all continents, matching consumer demand for better, more responsible products.

In addition it produces carpets for single-use exhibition applications.
With a turnover exceeding 15 million [euro], and a production capacity of 25,000 tons of staple fiber per year, DS Fibers offers tailor-made service to its industry partners. With recent investments of more than 5 million [euro] to create a state-of-the-art production line, the company can supply all types of staple fiber from 3.3 to 17 dtex suitable for a range of applications.
"We see NatureWorks LLC as a good strategic partner for all our existing and future activities because our company is committed to better environmental care on all levels," said Dirk De Saedeleir, technical director for DS Fibers.
