The Lenzing Group successfully completed a comprehensive extension program at its Heiligenkreuz site in Austria and started production on schedule.

A total investment of EUR 25 mill. extended production capacity for high-quality TENCEL fibers by 10,000 tons to almost 50,000 tons annually. The extension essentially comprises two new spinning lines added to the second production line and adapted and enhanced infrastructure.

In a talk with the state governor of Burgenland, Hans Niessl, in Eisenstadt, the chairman of the Lenzing management board, Thomas Fahnemann, underlined the importance of the Burgenland site for the Lenzing Group. “Over the past years, Heiligenkreuz has developed into a very successful production site. Our high investment activity over the past years is proof of our future commitment. Given the right framework conditions and market demand, we will consider future extension.“

The site produces high-quality TENCEL fibers from the natural raw material pulp by a particularly ecologically sound and future-oriented process. Lenzing's TENCEL fibers are highly favored not only in fiber blends for textile applications but for home textiles as well. Moreover, the fiber is highly successful in technical applications, for example in separators for the batteries of hybrid-power cars.

Due to its technological lead, Lenzing is the only producer of TENCEL fibers on an industrial scale world-wide. The fiber is also produced at the Lenzing sites in Grimsby/England and Mobile/Alabama.
