Trevira invests to optimise filament yarn production

Fibre manufacturer Trevira has invested in optimising its filament yarn production at its site in Guben. In May a start was made on the conversion of a spinning unit, the first module of which was opened on the 2 July with Bürgermeister Klaus-Dieter Hübner in attendance. In addition three extra texturing machines were recently procured and the first of these has now been installed.

"By converting spinning machine 10 we are expanding the range for spun-dyed filament yarns", explains Egon Engel, the works executive responsible for production at Trevira in Guben. "As a result we are able to handle smaller quantities and react more flexibly to customer wishes."

"The work involved was not only carried out by in-house technical personnel. Orders were also placed with companies in steel, conduit, ventilation and electrical installations based on the industrial site or in the Guben area. Thus jobs are being secured in the region by Trevira's investments in the future. This is a gain for the whole area!", states Egon Engel.

The achievement of greater flexibility was also the reason for purchasing the three texturing machines. "This enables us to expand capacity and from now on react better and faster to customer wishes", says Trevira CEO Jörg Hellwig. "We need this additional volume as we are presently almost sold out."

In the parent plant in Bobingen too the fibre manufacturer has invested in optimizing capacities. By the end of March, despite simultaneous reconstruction work after the fire in December 2006, the conversion of a machine in the fibre spinning unit could be completed, thus increasing capacities for bicomponent fibres. With demand rising, it had become a matter of urgency to expand capacity for these speciality fibres.
