Thrace-Linq Commissions NSC Nonwoven Needlepunch Line
Summerville, S.C.-based Thrace-Linq Inc. - a manufacturer of woven and nonwoven polypropylene
geosynthetic technical fabrics; and a member of The Thrace Plastics Group, a subsidiary of
Greece-based Thrace Plastics Co. S.A. - recently commissioned a state-of-the-art needlepunch line
from France-based NSC nonwoven.
Burnsville, N.C.-based Ford Trimble & Associates - a supplier of equipment and systems for the production of nonwovens, technical fabrics and traditional wovens - worked with Thrace- Linq and NSC nonwoven to deliver the high-performance line for technical fabrics that met Thrace-Linq's specifications.
"Our newest nonwovens line brings Thrace-Linq into the new millennium, and the purchase allows us to maintain focus on our key target markets, strengthen our core competencies and accelerate growth while improving operational efficiencies and returning shareholder value," said Davis Taylor, vice president, Thrace-Linq.
