US Nonwovens Completes Phase II Expansion And Modernization

Brentwood, N.Y.-based U.S. Nonwovens Corp., a manufacturer of personal and home care products for
retail and institutional markets, has concluded Phase II of its North American Capacity Expansion
and Modernization Program — a $32 million investment that included adding 500,000 square feet of
manufacturing and distribution space; installing state-of-the-art fully automated blending,
converting and robotic packaging lines and molds; and improving production of the nonwovens line at
its Brentwood Mill location. According to the company, all upgrades include high-level control and
automation systems.

“Our ability to satisfy customer demand across the retail and institutional markets, with the
unforeseen 3X surge for disinfecting products as a result of last year’s H1N1 Swine Flu outbreak is
a testament to our commitment of having Open Surge Capacity available for our customers,” said
Robert Stein, director of corporate communications, U.S. Nonwovens.

The company reports that Phase III of the program has already begun, and upon completion will
provide increased annual capacity as well as skill sets to meet future customer demand along with
unpredictable surges in demand.
