Reemay to add capacity.

With market diversification as its focus, roll goods producer Reemay has made the decision to expand spunbonded capacity at its Old Hickory, TN facility. According to general manager Migo Nalbantyan, the new line will feature both "Typar" and "Reemay" spunbonded technologies. "The best attributes of both will be incorporated into the new capacity," said Mr. Nalbantyan, "providing a new generation of spunbonded products."

The line will also have the capability to spin other resins, including polyester, polyethylene and possibly nylon and can produce both durable and disposable products. The capacity expansion is set to begin construction shortly, with full commercial production expected in late 1995 or early 1996.
