PFNonwovens, a producer of nonwoven fabrics in Europe, US and Africa, is investing in new technology designed to boost nonwoven product performance at its site in Znojmo, Czech Republic. This technology allows PFN to make proprietary premium, apertured and 3D embossed fabrics to expand and diversify its product portfolio for medical and hygiene markets.
According to company, installation and commissioning of the new line is scheduled for Q2 2021.
“We are very excited to combine this technology to add even more value to our premium and ultra-premium softness solutions and to enhance our bio-sourced nonwoven portfolio. We will be able to offer new patterned topsheets with higher absorption, beautifully textured backsheets with improved breathability, and we will launch several new compelling product applications for our hygiene and medical markets,” Tonny de Beer, PFN’s chief technology and product development officer, said in a press release.
“PFN remains focused on delivering precisely tailored solutions to meet specific customer needs. This investment provides our customers an easy and visually distinct way to differentiate their products from their competition, while providing better value to the end-consumers,” Shane Vincent, PFN’s chief commercial officer and global head of business development said.
