UK-based Technical Fibre Products (TFP) has announced a new manufacturing line to significantly increase its nonwoven capacity in response to increasing demand for the company’s advanced nonwovens across all markets. New infrastructure will be installed to house the line and warehousing extended to support the increase in product and raw materials.

Commissioning of the new line will start soon. The expansion follows an already significant capacity increase in 2015, the company said in a media release.

Martin Thompson, TFP’s managing director, said: “This new production line delivers another significant capacity increase for TFP, which is necessary to meet rapidly increasing demand for our nonwovens in markets such as fuel cells and defence, as well as facilitating delivery of the company’s successful growth strategy. The opening of the line is the latest exciting step in TFP’s growth, which has also included the acquisition of TFP Hydrogen Products Ltd (formerly PV3 Technologies Ltd) in January this year to expand our product portfolio and knowledge base in hydrogen technologies.”

TFP, a subsidiary of James Cropper, is a knowledge-based manufacturing company specialising in developing advanced nonwovens and other related materials for highly technical and challenging applications. The company’s advanced nonwovens provide innovative solutions across industries such as hydrogen fuel cells, aerospace, defence and wind energy.
