Petropar increasing nonwoven production.

The Brazilian Petropar group recently initiated plans to increase capacity at Fitesa Nao Tecidos S.A. at its Gravatai, Brazil facility, according to company vice president Luiz Kaufman. The plant has been in operation since April 1990, with production at 4500 tons of polypropylene spunbonded nonwovens per year. The capacity expansion should bring annual production to 8000 tons per year by January 1993.

The global investment involved in the expansion is estimated to be around $1 0 million; the goal is to satisfy internal market needs, freeing one of the lines for export production.
