Johns Manville Upgrades Glass Line

To support the needs and demands of local markets and customers, Denver-based Johns Manville (JM) plans to significantly enhance a glass fiber nonwovens line at its facility in Wertheim, Germany. The upgraded line is expected to be online by the end of 2017. During the construction phase, JM assures customers it will work to provide a reliable supply of product.

“This investment clearly shows the strong commitment our U.S.-based parent company has to the Wertheim plant,” said Heinrich Bein, managing director, JM’s Germany-based glass plants. “I am proud of the JM employees who have worked hard to make this development possible, and I am proud of the way they support our Made in Germany manufacturing process on a daily basis.”

“Johns Manville has decades of experience in the development and production of glass fiber nonwovens,” said Martin Kleinebrecht, leader of marketing and portfolio management for Nonwovens in Europe and Asia, JM. “This line enhancement will help us to further expand our market position.”
