Polymer Group To Build Nonwovens Plant In China

Charlotte-based Polymer Group Inc. (PGI) reports it will build a state-of-the-art nonwovens plant in Nanhai, China, to replace a facility the company has operated since the late 1990s. Nonwovens and chemical bond products manufactured at the new facility will serve PGI's hygiene and healthcare markets. The new facility is expected to be operational in the first half of 2016, and PGI does not anticipate any disruption for customers.

The Nanhai District People's Government supports PGI's investment and is a key partner for PGI in the region.

"PGI is committed to continued growth and market leadership in the hygiene and healthcare markets we serve globally," said Veronica "Ronee" M. Hagen, CEO, PGI. "Market growth remains strong in Asia for our nonwoven materials and expanding our manufacturing capacity through the Nanhai facility is just one example of our plans to meet our customers' needs well into the future."

PGI also owns a state-of-the-art healthcare and hygiene nonwovens facility in Suzhou, China, where it recently completed an investment project.
