TNS Mills enters geotextiles business.

A traditional textiles company, TNS Mills, Greenville, SC, recently entered the nonwovens industry by creating a Nonwoven Division to manufacture needlepunched polypropylene geotextile fabrics. Known primarily for its flexible ring-spun and open-end yarn production, TNS Mills is a subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer Tsuzuki Spinning, one of the largest textile companies in Japan.

The highly automated 70,000 sq. foot nonwovens facility will be located in Greer, SC, on the company's 67 acre site adjacent two other TNS plants. The geotextile fabrics will target the roofing, erosion protection, pipe lining, sub-soil stabilization, pond liner, filtration and drainage and irrigation system markets. Construction of the plant is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 1993, with the site planned to be fully operational by the end of July.
