The Fibertex Nonwovens, Inc. Gray Court Facility operates a state-of-the art spunlace production line, manufacturing products mainly for the wipes industry. The expansion will include a second spunlace production line. Fibertex has also purchased an adjacent 84-acre industrial plot for future expansions.
“Market trends are finding support in the added focus on health and hygiene, more emphasis on local production and on sustainability, which is to our benefit,” said Fibertex Nonwovens Inc. CEO Jorgen Bech Madson. “With this new investment, we’ll be able to build an extremely strong position in the important North American market for, among other things, high-performance wipes for sanitizing and disinfection purposes in the healthcare/medical sector, sustainable personal care products, a range of industrial applications, as well as in the automotive industry and the construction sector.”
Design partners for the project include Thomas & Hutton, MCA Architecture and Arrowood + Arrowood Engineers. The facility is scheduled to be completed by 2023.
