Jacob Holm Industries GmbH, a Switzerland-based manufacturer of hydroentangled and composite nonwovens, has opened a production line in Candler, N.C., to serve industrial, hygiene and wipes markets in the Americas. Jacob Holm Industries (America) Inc. boasts a 4.5-meter-wide line and an annual production capacity of 15,000 metric tons. The plant will process a variety of raw materials including cotton, and also will offer a variety of off-line after-treatment options.
