Schoeller & Hoesch adds melt blown line.

With the addition of a 1.6 meter wide melt blown line at a new plant for its French subsidiary, Schoeller & Hoesch, Gernsbach, Germany, will be joining the ranks of nonwovens suppliers. Prior to establishing the new facility and adding melt blowing capabilities, Schoeller & Hoesch had concentrated on paper products, with a few cross-over wet laid nonwoven goods.

Construction on the facility, located in Alsace, has already begun, with machine start-up set for October and full production beginning in January 1993. Once the line is in place, it will also be capable of producing multiple layered thermal bonded products.

With the expansion, the company hopes to improve and expand its market position, especially in the oil and chemical absorbents, filtration and capacitor segments. Technical applications in particular will be targeted with the new synthetic fiber potential. Polypropylene will be the predominant fiber, although there is no limitation on the raw material that can be used.
