Fontana International GmbH
In 2008, Fontana International GmbH in Linz / Austria was founded to cover delivery and technical customer service for Drefon geotextiles. Many years of experience in geotechnical engineering, together with decades of experience in textile engineering, guarantee optimum tailormade products on the highest technical level.
Since 1963, the traditional textile manufactory in Valbrenta / Northern Italy is working with synthetic fibres, a completely new development at that time. One of the first needlepunching machines worldwide was used. Since the early 70's, Manifattura Fontana focussed its work on nonwoven textiles for the building industry, such as carrier products for bitumen, and geotextiles. Nowadays, more than 15.000 tons of high-quality fibres are used on state-of-the-art production lines producing nonwoven textiles for all fields of civil and building engineering - from light filter textile with 90 g/m², up to heavy protection geotextiles with 2500 g/m² for tunnels, landfills, canals and reservoirs.
