Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers Withdraws From Staple Fiber Business

EGELSBACH, Germany — April 18, 2016 — Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers GmbH has announced it will sell its staple fiber technology to the Manmade Fibers Segment of Oerlikon Group.

Business with spinning plants for carpet yarns (BCF) and industrial yarns (IDY) is not affected by this change.

The company will concentrate on the strategic development of its two other businesses — nonwovens machinery and filament lines.

“With this restructuring in Egelsbach we will focus our capacities and competencies on the key topics of our nonwovens’ customers,” said Dr. Georg Reinhold, managing director and CEO of Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers GmbH. “It will shorten the time to market of our innovative solutions and will further strengthen our worldwide service. Trützschler’s name stands for technological innovations as well as for a high level of customer focus. In this regard, we will set new standards.”

The Oerlikon Group will integrate the staple fiber technologies into the Oerlikon Neumag business.

Oerlikon and Trützschler will ensure that the agreed objectives of fast and reliable spare parts supply will be achieved to the satisfaction of all their customers.
