Freudenberg Nonwovens Inaugurates England-Based Adsorptive Products Facility

Looking to expand its adsorptives business beyond existing applications, Germany-based Freudenberg Nonwovens - a nonwoven materials manufacturer and member of the Freudenberg Group - has invested more than 2 million euros in developing its activated carbon technology. The investment includes a new Adsorptive Products manufacturing facility in Littleborough, England, which recently began production. The company held a ceremony at the beginning of the month to celebrate the opening. The facility currently employs 22 associates, all of whom previously worked at Freudenberg's Greetland, England-based adsorptives plant.

Freudenberg's adsorptive performance materials feature an active carbon finishing treatment, which provides odor control and adsorbs detrimental agents and toxins. The products find applications in healthcare and other technical markets.

"Investing to move downstream the value chain to supply finished and converted performance materials for applications such as adsorptive is a large part of our group strategy," said Bruce Olsen, CEO and president, Freudenberg Nonwovens. "Besides producing nonwoven roll good material, we are focused on adding value through converting as well as finishing and treatment processes such as coating of base materials with activated carbon as we do it in our Adsorptive business."
