CNC To Open New Facility
The line will manufacture thermobonded nonwovens for a wide range of industrial and consumer products, making them stronger, lighter-weight and less expensive than conventional products, according to John Gearhart, vice president, CNC. The company, which has developed several proprietary products for its customers, will process natural and recycled fibers.
“This new facility is the culmination of intensive market research and product development over the past 18 months,” said Fred Fink, president, CNC. “The Lincolnton Economic Development Association team has been instrumental in attracting Carolina Nonwovens to the area. The CNC management team is excited about locating in Lincolnton with its strong labor pool and convenient access to our customer base. We expect the new facility to ramp up production no later than May 2007,” he added.
