Ahlstrom to install new air filter media line in Texas

Feb '07
Ahlstrom Corporation announced that it will invest EUR 5 million in a new drylaid nonwoven line to serve the North American air filtration market. The new line, located at Ahlstrom's Groesbeck, TX, facility, is expected to start at the beginning of 2008.

The Groesbeck site currently operates six drylaid and needlepunch nonwoven lines dedicated to producing filter media. The new line will incorporate the latest advances in drylaid nonwoven equipment and provide Ahlstrom with an additional fast and modern asset to better serve the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) filter media market in North America.

The line will be particularly well suited to manufacture products for the medium efficiency range and offer solutions to the growing demand for unsupported filter media.

"By installing state of the art equipment in Texas, we are providing our customers with more advanced products, closer to their locations", commented Scott Murdock, Vice President Filtration for North America. "With the combination of our Darlington, SC and Groesbeck, TX sites, customers will benefit from a complete product offering and geographical coverage".

Ahlstrom's Filtration business area is the leading manufacturer of filtration materials with 12 production sites across four continents.
