Turkey-based Mogul Co. Ltd., a nonwovens producer with plants in Turkey and South Carolina, has announced plans for a third location in Turkey. According to the company, the new plant will feature state-of-the-art technology — including complex fiber and filament equipment for splittable bicomponent filaments, cross-lap spunlace web forming machinery and chemical treatment and printing machinery — for the production of performance-based nonwovens for a variety of technical end-uses. The plant is scheduled to go online during the second half of 2016. The investment marks the first step in three-phase investment plan for the plant, which Mogul plans to eventually triple in capacity.
“With our new venture, we aim to obtain more durable, efficient and natural comfort fabrics, which will open new frontiers for us,” said Serkan Gogus, CEO, Mogul.
