Ahlstrom Adds $40 Million Production Line

Finland-based Ahlstrom Corp. recently installed a new high-performance nonwovens production line in its Windsor Locks, Conn., facility. "This new expanded capacity recognizes the strength and growth potential of the dynamic wipes market, as well as Ahlstrom's intention to invest in technically superior products for next-generation applications," said Jukka Moisio, president, FiberComposites Division. "Its design and capabilities respond to the market need for high-performance, value-priced wipe materials that are soft, strong and embossed."

The addition of the $40 million line establishes Windsor Locks as Ahlstrom's largest nonwoven manufacturing site. Other recent upgrades at the facility include a $50 million nonwoven composite line and investment in equipment for dual textured or abrasive nonwovens products.
