Tenowo announces global expansion plan
Tenowo, the German-based producer of needlepunch, drylaid, spunlaced and stitch-bonded nonwovens has announced a global expansion plan totaling about €50 million ($63 million) encompassing upgrades to its sites in Germany and the U.S. as well as expansion into Europe.
Managing director Harold Stini says he expects the investments, which include a new spun lace line in Reichenbach, Germany, an expansion of needlepunch capacity in Hof, Germany, line upgrades in North Carolina, U.S. and a new plant near Shanghai, China, to be complete by the second quarter of 2015 and to start contributing to sales growth one year after that. Much of the new capacity will create acoustical products for the automotive market but other areas of interest are construction and filtration.
