Neumag Renames Subsidiaries, Opens Competence Center
Germany-based Neumag, a subsidiary of
Germany-based Saurer GmbH & Co. KG, has integrated its nonwovens machinery subsidiaries into
one Neumag business unit, while retaining their original names as technology brands within its
nonwovens technology portfolio.
Austria-based needleloom manufacturer and airlay technology provider Fehrer has been renamed Neumag Saurer Austria. Fincarde, an Italy-based carding machinery manufacturer, now is known as Neumag Italy. Airlaid systems provider M&J Fibretech, Denmark, has become Neumag Denmark.
Neumag’s Germany-based Autefa crosslapping subsidiary has retained its name because it serves not only the nonwovens sector, but also other textile sectors.
In other news, Neumag has opened a carding competence center at Neumag Saurer Austria. The center features a complete 3.5-meter-wide carded nonwoven production line from bale opening through end-product winding. The line is available to customers for product development work; and also will be used for internal product, component and process development.
The new center also will feature an aerodynamic carding line and a spunlace line until 2007. Neumag Saurer Austria’s needlepunching facilities also house state-of-the-art structuring needlelooms.
