PGI Expanding Spunbond Capacity In The Americas

Charlotte-based nonwovens producer Polymer Group Inc. (PGI) plans to install a spunbond line at one of its three locations in North America in order to meet growing demand from customers in the United States and Mexico. The line will be used to manufacture lightweight, strong fabrics used in fine-denier top sheet and other materials used in diapers and other personal hygiene products. The new installation, which will increase PGI’s nonwovens capacity by 15,000 metric tons, is scheduled to start commercial production towards the end of 2008.

PGI is also installing a spunbond line in Argentina to meet similar growing demand in the Mercosur trading region. The new line will more than double the capacity of Dominion Nonwovens Sudamericana S.A., PGI’s joint venture facility. That installation will be complete by the end of this year.

Both installations will create additional jobs — the number will depend on each site’s requirements, according to Dennis Norman, vice president, strategic planning and communication, PGI.
