Jones Acquires Rontex

The Jones Family of Companies, Humboldt, Tenn., has acquired Rontex America LLC, a producer of engineered needled nonwovens based in Amherst, N.H. Rontex will continue to operate out of its Amherst facility, which will allow Jones to distribute its products in the northeast region. Matt Buck, Jones’ vice president of technical nonwovens, was named general manager of Rontex America.

“Rontex’s expertise and experience in engineered nonwovens will be a powerful addition to our family of companies and bolster our aspirations to drive long-term growth,” said CP Davis, president and CEO of the Jones Family of Companies. “We are very proud to have Rontex join our family. Rontex has a strong history and reputation for quality, customer service and innovation. This move further enables Jones to deliver comprehensive non-woven solutions designed to improve comfort, protection, and sustainability.”
