Freudenberg to cease operations of 2 production lines

Feb '08
Freudenberg Nonwovens will cease production on two manufacturing lines in their North American Hopkinsville, KY (USA) facility. One line produces staple fiber/ binderbond nonwovens and the second is an adhesive web operation, both serving the North American automotive market.

Declining production volume year over year has necessitated the closing. "We have been working with the effected customers developing supply alternatives" says Stephan Liozu, Vice President & General Manager, Spunlaid Division North America.

"We will be transferring business associated with the two lines from the Hopkinsville facility to our operations in Durham, NC. We stand committed to servicing our customer base in the North American automotive market and to bringing new nonwovens technologies and solutions to our customers."

Freudenberg's Filtration Division will continue operations from the Hopkinsville location as will Freudenberg Vitech, L.P. which serves the North American automotive market. Spunlaid and staple fiber operations in Durham, North Carolina will continue to serve the North American interlining, industrial and building products segments as well as the automotive market.

Freudenberg Nonwovens is the world's largest producer of nonwovens, with 23 manufacturing and processing sites in 13 countries. The company manufactures interlining nonwovens for the apparel, automotive, construction, shoe, textile/upholstered furniture and hygiene industries and for filters, medical applications and numerous other industrial applications.

Last year, the FV Group realized sales of over 800 million Euros and has over 4,800 employees worldwide. The company is part of the Freudenberg Group, which, together with the Nonwovens, Seals and Vibration Control Technology, Household Products and Specialties Business Areas generates sales of around 5.3 billion Euros and has 33,000 employees.
