Freudenberg Nonwovens announces the permanent closing of its staple fiber production lines at the Durham facility in North America.

The closing will be effective end of March 2009. Products currently manufactured in the facility will be transferred to other Freudenberg sites or discontinued. Today the Durham staple-fiber production operates two base lines and two print-sets and employs 60 people. The Spunlaid Division in Durham with its production capacity is not affected by this closure.

"The Business with staple fiber Nonwovens, has suffered financial hardship due to the economic slowdowns in the three largest markets of home industrial, mattress and wipes. This adjustment of production capacity is necessary to bring our capability in line with current market demand", said John McNabb, General Manager and Vice-President Industrial Nonwovens Division. "We will focus on serving our key customer base with a local sales force, supplying Freudenberg material from other facilities".

Freudenberg Nonwovens is committed to maintaining a strong presence in North America. There are remaining operations in the Durham, NC and Hopkinsville, KY.

Freudenberg will provide outplacement services to facilitate the job search for the employees.
