Ahlstrom, a global leader in the development and manufacture of high performance nonwovens and specialty papers, will consolidate its nonwoven wiping fabrics manufacturing platform in Italy, with the aim of increasing capacity, efficiency and breadth of product range.
The production of wipes will be located in two out of three existing manufacturing sites: Mozzate and Cressa, while the Carbonate plant will be closed. All the plants are located in the Milan region and belong to Home & Personal Nonwovens business area.
The consolidation will not have any major impact on personnel or cause significant non-recurring costs. The company plans to complete the project by early 2011.
Ahlstrom is a leading manufacturer of wiping fabrics, offering a broad range of materials and technologies for diverse wiping applications. The company manufactures wiping fabrics at its sites across Europe, USA and South America.
