Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel Europe started construction work on its competence centre for finishing and coating base material for the apparel industry at its site in Sant´Omero, Italy. Further processing of base material is to begin in Italy in early 2023. The Weinheim site will then become the competence centre for interlining base material.

In January 2021, Freudenberg announced plans to set up two competence centres. In future, the company will concentrate on manufacturing base material for interlinings at the Weinheim location. Base material finishing and coating is to be bundled at Sant´Omero. For this purpose, the production plant will be relocated from Weinheim to Sant´Omero and recommissioned in a newly-built production hall, the company said in a press release.

“Thanks to the outstanding work of our employees, this complex project is running to schedule despite the corona pandemic, and we have now reached this important milestone. The traditional ground-breaking ceremony with senior representatives from local authorities and Freudenberg management was cancelled due to the high number of coronavirus cases in the area,” Hannah Koeppen, general manager Freudenberg Performance Materials Apparel Europe said in a statement.
