Amantea Nonwovens Breaks Ground For New Facility

Cincinnati-based Amantea Nonwovens LLC has begun construction of the first United States-based minority-owned nonwoven fabrics manufacturing plant. Located in the TechSolve Business Park in Cincinnati, a federally designated empowerment zone neighborhood, the 77,000-square-foot facility will employ about 30 people in a $20 million-per-year operation. Amantea's owners include CEO Kevin Lynch, COO Sorin Crainic, Partner Ernie Green and Italy-based nonwovens manufacturer Albis S.p.A. The company initially served as Brentwood, Tenn.-based BBA Fiberweb's distributor of nonwoven fabric to Cincinnati-based Procter and Gamble. Upon completion of its plant, Amantea will produce the fabric under contract with Procter and Gamble, and also will explore other commercial and consumer nonwovens markets.
