Fiberweb To Expand Old Hickory Plant

Nonwoven fabrics maker Fiberweb Plc, London, is to invest $15 million to expand its Old Hickory, Tenn., facility, adding a 300,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center, and consolidating all operations to one location to streamline production and reduce its carbon footprint.

Over the past four years, Fiberweb has added a $12 million state-of-the-art R&D center and invested $25 million to build an on-site shale-gas-powered utility plant in Old Hickory. The facility employs 500 people.
