Germany-based Trützschler GmbH & Co. KG has signed an agreement with China-based Zhejiang Wang Jin Nonwoven Co. Ltd. for two state-of-the-art spunlace lines. The first line is a high-speed carding line featuring random roller technology. The second line is a crosslapper capable of producing products with low MD/CD ratios. The lines will begin production during 2017.
The nonwoven company was formed in December 2015, and is looking to expand into the spunlace nonwovens market. Zhejiang Wang Jin Nonwoven plans a total investment of 660 million renminbi ($97 million) to purchase eight spunlace lines from Trützschler.
