The Lenzing Group is set to expand its capacities for Tencel Luxe filament yarn. The company will invest up to € 30 million in a further pilot line at the Lenzing site. Basic engineering for construction of the new facility has already been initiated. The Lenzing Group is a global company that produces high-quality fibres from renewable raw material wood.

The new capacities will enable Lenzing to more effectively fulfil the needs of customers for Tencel Luxe filament yarn, than in the past. At the same time, Lenzing will press ahead with technical planning for a large-scale commercial line at the Lenzing site. This strong level of demand is further evidence of the Lenzing Group’s innovative strength. The yarn is opening up new markets for the company in the eco-couture segment, thus contributing to the successful implementation of the sCore TEN strategy.

Robert van de Kerkhof, chief commercial officer of the Lenzing Group said, “Thanks to Tencel Luxe, Lenzing is currently positioning itself in the premium luxury market and is embedding the issue of sustainability there in combination with superior aesthetics. The fine filament yarn is comparable to natural silk due to its airy feeling on the skin and the matte finish. It is perfectly suited for very fine fabrics made exclusively from this yarn and as a blending partner with silk, cashmere and wool.”

Stefan Doboczky, chief executive officer and chairman of the management board of the Lenzing Group said, “On the occasion of the launch of Tencel Luxe filaments, the luxury brands already realised what opportunities they would have by using this yarn made of the renewable raw material wood. For this reason, demand is already so high that we have decided to take an intermediate step to expand capacities before building a large commercial production plant. The decision to construct a new line will serve as the basis for generating a three-fold increase in capacity compared to the previous volume. The additional capacity will be available to customers at the end of next year. The Lenzing site was selected because research and technological know-how in plant construction are connected in a special way, which will in turn enable us to further develop this special product.” (GK)
