Domtar is set to expand its Jesup, Georgia-based Engineered Absorbent Materials (EAM) facility. The project will play an integral role in helping the company grow its position as a leading global absorbent materials and technology business offering fluff pulp and airlaid nonwoven materials. Domtar is a provider of a wide variety of fibre-based products.

Domtar’s EAM facility has been developing and manufacturing innovative, high-quality absorbent core solutions since 1998. This expansion project will add a large scale Dan-Web airlaid production line to the facility. The machine will be fully operational in 2022, enhancing Domtar's ability to supply both domestic and global customers with unique absorbent materials solutions, the company said in a press release.

“This expansion is a strategic step toward strengthening our value proposition as an essential partner to absorbent hygiene customers around the world,” Lewis Fix, Domtar vice president for commercial pulp and airlaid said in a statement.
