Sales decline in Europe and the United StatesS.
According to a spokesman for Schroeder, the continued shift in garment production to Asia has largely led to growth in Asia and Latin America.
In order to avoid increasing raw material costs and competitive pressures in the automotive and textile markets, freudenberg began restructuring the German non-woven fabric factory in October.
Plans to save flaudenberg 30 million [euro]
The increase in working hours per week, the transfer of labor intensity to Eastern Europe, and the reduction of employees.
These initiatives aim to protect German websites for a long time.
\"We have to operate efficiently in our German factory and focus mainly on the high-tech production department there,\" said Stephan Tanda, President and CEO of freudberg non-woven fabric.
If we want to keep our German website-
This is our firm determination. -
Then there is nothing to replace the measures we have announced.
\"The German layoff involved 250 positions in Wayne Heim, 50 positions in catherslouten, and 20 positions in Bohong, Germany, so the total number of layoffs was 320.
In particular, catherslault will benefit from the restructuring;
A technical center of the site will be dedicated to the production of high-tech automotive cabin air filters and spinners, which will create 58 news jobs for the site.
The difficulties that led to this focus effort were caused by external factors, including an increase of about 15 million per year in raw material costs.
At the same time, the company said considerable competitive pressure in the market led to a decline in sales revenue, especially in key European markets such as cars and textiles.
The impact of these factors was somewhat mitigated by the $40 million corporate restructuring plan that flaudenberg announced in 2002 and completed last year. Designed to meet customer needs faster by streamlining the company\'s five departments-
Non-woven fabrics for hygiene/Medical, filter, lining and technology--
The plan calls for a re-adjustment of the department to make it self
Full product development, marketing, sales and service and responsible for production, factory and production line.
Now, each freudberg factory is responsible for specific market segments rather than offering a range of products at each site.
In Europe, the German website thekaiserslauton is responsible for the tuft, filtration and health/medical department in Wayne Heim, Germany, where there are mezzanine and filtration businesses, as well as Spain and Germany
Greetland of the United StatesK.
The factory is responsible for hygiene and medical products as well as Evolon business at Holz flaudenberg, France.
The reconfigure also requires the addition and replacement of lines throughout Europe. In the U. S.
The line has been transferred from MAfacility Lowell, which was closed on 2004, to NC Durham and KY Hopkinsville.
Although the restructuring did not affect freudenberg\'s business outside North America and Europe, the company has been focusing on these areas, which show strong growth prospects.
In Latin America, Freudenberg has started a new production line in Jacarei, Brazil, the fourth of the plant to develop its health business there.
Freudenberg also has a factory in Saint Martin/Argentina\'s Buenos in Argentina.
A new 12,000 in Asiaton-per-
In the first quarter of next year, Taiwan\'s spunbond production line will be put into production.
Based on polyester technology, the new production line will enable freudberg to increase the production capacity of tuft supporting substrates and enhance its global supply flexibility to customers.
Increased capacity is expected to meet demand for polyester fiber
Basic products for the next 8 to 10 years.
In addition to capital investment, flaudenberg has also stimulated its Asian business through acquisitions.
In May 2005, freudenberg consolidated its position in the Chinese apparel industry by acquiring Nantong Hymo Co.
Norton in Jiangsu province.
Nantong Hymo is a leader in the Chinese shirt lining market and one of China\'s leading woven lining and lining finishing companies.
It was founded in 1985 and is owned in China with its high quality finishing technology and excellent service level and delivery reliability.
In 2004, Nantong Hymo achieved sales of US $22 million and produced more than 30 million square meters of lining materials.
The acquisition of Nantong Hymo has enabled flaudenberg\'s Asian lining business to develop so far, with five factories in Malaysia and more than 1000 employees. -
In Suzhou, China, Nantong, China, Seoul, Korea, Yang-
Chennai, Taiwan and India.
At present, the company\'s total investment in Asia is about $0. 15 billion.
Also in Asia, freudberg established a joint venture in filtration in 2004.
Frodenberg, Japan verun and China partners have established a company called frodenberg and verun filters (Changchun)Co. Ltd.
Acquired the filtering business of Changchun AutofilterCompany.
The joint venture is providing engine and cabin air filters as well as filter elements to leading automakers in northern and eastern China, and helping fuel freudenberg\'s position in the Chinese automotive market, especially in itsm
Fraudenberg\'s tuft business is centered on polyester spinning technology, and strong sales in Asia are challenged by rising raw material prices that have been passed on to customers, and the 11 th chapter status of one of its key customers.
On the positive side, however, the department will benefit from the new fine fiber polyester textile sticking technology installed in katherlault, Germany.
This new production line will be launched in the first quarter of next year, with the goal of a wide finefiber durable polyester textile adhesive market.
The filter market is becoming more and more important for freudberg, which continues to launch products and announce investment strategies to expand its business globally.
While sales in Latin America and North America continue to grow, this sector is under heavy price pressure in Europe, especially in Germany, with higher raw material costs.
Froudenberg continues to see the development of its internal business in Asia, and its investment in Nantong Hymo has corrected the situation to some extent, which has led to a reduction in investment in Europe and the United States. S.
Asia is growing rapidly.
New product of Freudenberg Vilene X!
Treme is called the world\'s first super elastic mezzanine with soft, elastic, and multiple elasticity
The function and good service have received positive feedback from the market.
In terms of health and medical care, Freudenberg continues to avoid mass production in the commodity sector, instead, it is aimed at topsheets, barrier leg cuffs, purchase layers and textile backplates for wound care applications, as well as incontinence and female sanitary products and non-woven fabrics.
These segments allow freudberg to deliver innovation and value, and pay off.
The fifth segment of Freudenberg is non-woven fabrics for technology, which includes a wide range of niche and special applications.
In North America, the main areas of interest include fire prevention devices in the mattress industry-
Driven by state and federal regulations-
In Europe, curtains, car interior, cable packaging, battery separator, car interior, fiber
Reinforced Plastics and acoustics show great potential.
In addition to the five main departments, Freudenberg continues to focus on two key professional products-
Evolon and Novolon.
Made of continuous fine silk water Thorn non-woven fabric, Evolon has good hanging, softness and high tensile strength, perfect for professional wet wipes, anti-aging bedding, technical packaging and
According to Mr.

DuPont non-woven fabric is the main market for construction, health care, protective clothing, industry, filtration, absorbent, household goods, envelopes, geotextile, graphics, packaging, footwear under the new leadership this year.
At october5, Matt Trerotola replaced Mark Vergnano as vice president and general manager of the department, which reported sales of $1.
35 billion range last year, a 6-7% increase. Mr.
Trerotola continues to focus on leveraging Dupont as a value leader in all of its end-use categories, including construction, medical care, protective clothing, and recent filtering.
\"We think we are a value leader, so we focus on providing value and getting paid for that value,\" he said . \".
\"It has been difficult because raw materials and other logistics costs have grown so fast.
Profits are squeezed and we have to pass on these costs to our customers.
But we continue to focus on bringing value to the market through new technologies.
\"Despite these challenges, DuPont non-woven fabrics remain strong.
And its goal is to double
Due to late arrival, did not reach the highest growth rate of digits in 5 yearsin-the-
Executives say the department is moving towards achieving that goal in 2006.
A core strategy to drive the development of DuPont non-woven fabric is that the department continues to focus on selective barrier technology.
\"When you think about our technology, we have a lot of successful products because they have selective barrier solutions,\" he said . \"
Trerotola, referring to Tyvek house-
To name just a few, packaging and medical packaging products and Sontara medical gown.
\"We have a strong position in these alternative barrier solutions, and now we are looking for opportunities to add new markets and technologies.
\"There are two areas in these markets that are filtration and energy storage, and DuPont aims to make the latest innovations in terms of selective barriers.
Mixed membrane technology (HMT)
Is a combination of ultra-micron fiber and high surface area, providing the best balance of flow
In the spring of 2006, DuPont set up a production line in South Korea to produce new materials on this line.
HMT allows DuPont to expand its presence in the filtration market, providing a strong growth opportunity for non-woven fabrics as it is able to capture sub-microparticles such as bacteria evenly while maintaining a high flow rate, sandra Van warmer, president of hybrid membrane venture capital, said.
In addition, the high uniformity of the fabric will benefit the energy storage application.
\"There are many possibilities for application . \"
Van warmer said.
\"DuPont is working to bring HMTvalue to customers in various areas that require selective barriers.
\"Investment in South Korea represents DuPont\'s commitment to meet global market demand.
Elsewhere in Asia, DuPont operates a joint venture in China and converts assets in China and Japan.
At present, DuPont can use its existing technology in North America and Europe to meet the needs of Asia, but it has been investing other resources in Japan, China, India and South Korea, which have been designated
In addition to Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America are also other hot spots for growth.
DuPont primarily serves eastern Europe from its western European operations in Luxembourg and Spain, while in Latin America its joint venture with footwear supplier ciatex continues to expand, initially aiming to open up business opportunities in the footwear sector.
\"Most of our production is in North America and Europe . \"
\"But we have been looking at all of our areas from a global perspective.
Europe and the United States. S.
We are the largest business, but we now have a large number of Asian companies and fast-growing South American companies.
\"Tyvek DuPont Tyvek business continues to perform well based on flash-spun non-woven fabric technology, as evidenced by the department\'s recent announcement that it will increase production at its two main facilities ---
In Richmond, the VA and Luxembourg.
While Mahesh Mansukhani, director of global operations at Tyvek, will not elaborate on the scope of theRichmond\'s expansion, which will be launched within 18 months, Hedi revealed that an increase in Luxembourg\'s capacity will result in 15-
Global Tyvek production capacity increased by 20% by 2008.
\"It shows our firm belief that we will continue to grow in the same way as before,\" he said . \".
In recent years, Tyvek has steadily increased by 6-
7% per year, thanks to smaller areas such as construction, protective clothing and medical packaging, as well as envelopes, graphics and other nicheapplication.
In the construction sector, DuPont Tyvek responded to the slowdown in market growth in Europe and Asia and the recent slowdown in the United States. S.
Housing markets that introduce new products, such as metallized Tyvek, are incorporated into Tyvek AtticWrap and ThermaWrap, helping to reduce the generation of heat
Get up in summer and cool in winter.
\"Architecture is a major contributor to tyvek growth, but we have a good pipeline in all areas,\" Mr.
\"Our success is largely related to our ability to introduce new products that provide customers with new opportunities and new reasons to use Tyvek.
\"At the same time, there is a synergy between Tyvek and other DuPont brands, such as Nomex and Kevin, and protective clothing also benefits from it.
DuPont\'s personal protection department, including the brand of protective products, is able to provide a range of protective solutions.
These products have been extended to clothing that can prevent multiple dangers.
With knowledge of non-woven fabrics and tychem and Nomex experience, Thermopro, for example, is the first garment to meet the standards for flash fire and chemical protection of the NFPA.
The Tyvek medical packaging business benefits from the introduction of Asuron, which provides the same high microbial protection and physical properties as Tyvek® packaging 3B, while providing significant improvements such as wider
Sealing windows, better printing suitability and bar code readability, a more uniform look and a wider area production capacity.
According to executives, the development of Asuron and other new products using Tyvek illustrates the dynamics of the technology.
\"One thing about Tyvek is that it provides a combination of attributes that allow it to bring some quality to many applications,\" Mr.
\"Competitors have tried and been able to do some amazing things with one attribute of this fabric, but no one is able to implement all of this on one substrate.
\"In addition to Tyvek\'s main market, DuPont officials are reluctant to disclose some of the smaller niche markets.
\"We don\'t want to lose our competitive advantage.
The niche market is our growth engine.
We want these markets to be our next major market . \"Mansukhanisaid.
Sontara, the DuPont Sontara business unit, is usually divided into two parts: medical fabrics and diversified fabrics, including wet wipes and household products.
In 2005, the two parts realize the double
Despite a slight decline in sales in the industrial wiping category, the figures grew.
The Dupont medical fabric business includes several brands: Softesse water Thorn material, Suprel premium composite fabric and acturel film.
The type of fabric depends largely on the type of medical procedure.
Launched in 2003, Suprel is DuPont\'s first new aggregation technology.
Suprel combines the softness of polyethylene with the barrier protection of polyester to meet the two key needs of the medical community ---
Comfort and protection.
\"We are very excited about suprel,\" said Scott Gettelfinger, North American business manager . \".
\"This year, thanks to the value portfolio provided by nurses and surgeons seeking the best combination of comfort and protection, we have seen significant adoption rates.
\"As the medical community becomes more aware of infection prevention programs, they are also willing to pay higher prices for the correct protection of people and patients.
DuPont has been working with distribution partners Medline to educate healthcare buyers on the value proposition of Suprel and Softesse.
\"The combination of protection and comfort allows nurses and surgeons to perform at a better level and provide better health care . \"
Suprel tends to buy higher-end medical clothing such as the woolrasurgical gown, the Orthomax curtains, Aurora surgical curtains and DuPontIsolation dresses, while providing better for the medical market
At the same time, Softesse, a water Thorn product provided by DuPont for the medical market, continues to perform well, and the medical community in emerging regions has increased the transition from reusable dresses to one-time use, the trend of infection control awareness.
\"We are increasing our inventory, which indicates the adoption of a single
\"On a global scale, the United States has\"
\"This is only the result of the evolution of the natural market.
\"In addition to medical treatment, DuPont water Thorn non-woven fabric has also achieved significant penetration in the field of wet wipes, especially in areas that attach importance to the high absorption and low edge of Sontara.
One of the great tricks of DuPont wipes business is its role in the automotive surface preparation system, which contains wet wipes and dry wipes to prepare automatic surfaces before painting.
\"We are the only company that can combine our business --depth know-
What is the performance required for the automotive refin paint process and related wiping products, ultimately providing better paint work.
\"Despite reports that consumer wipes have been commercialized, DuPontexecutives commented that there are still opportunities for value to be appreciated in this area.
\"The goal of the new waterthorn line comingonstream is to have a wider consumer and health market than we do, so they don\'t necessarily pose a direct threat to us . \"
\"We choose to play a role in areas where our technology is appreciated and valued.
\"Back to the company\'s advanced composite technology, which, three years after entering the medical market, is expanding into new areas such as construction, and landscape fabrics and protective clothing are valued for their flexibility.
\"It is our ultimate goal to be able to bring new products to existing customers by providing additional value, and we are achieving this through our new technology . \"
In fact, DuPont is just the tip of the iceberg of the technology, mixing different polymers into a sub-strategy will enable DuPont to target some of the markets that are not currently on the wovens onwovens radar.
\"If you look at our technical history from a polymer perspective, it\'s limited ,\"Trerotola said.
\"Instead, we offer value in terms of coating or other technologies.
But with our new pipeline, we are turning to technologies that are more converged and flexible.
This is very exciting for DuPont as we have a lot of polymers.
It is actually a combination of two advantages, it allows us to think about how to change into a broader area than the traditional non-woven fabric.
He said: \"expanding into new areas will enable DuPont to expand its business in the market and other areas where it currently works. Trerotolaadded.
\"We are taking advantage of DuPont\'s vision to enter markets that we already know a lot about, and we are looking for new market areas to meet their unmet needs.
We have three strategic priorities.
We want to bring the power of DuPont to our customers;
We want to explore synergies, not only with our customers, but also within our business scope, and we want to take advantage of similar value chains within our company. \" 3 Kimberly-

It is possible to announce that the BBA Group will take a disciplinary action against the fiber web division, which reportedly increased sales by 12% to 0. 619 billion [Pound)($1. 1 billion)
In 2005, it was announced earlier that it was exploring ways to separate non-woven fabrics to focus on the aftermath of its core aviation services business.
According to toreports, demerger is more favored than sales when BBA fails to get the right price for the non-woven sector.
The BBA received many offers to purchase the fiber web, but decided that the separation and separation list of the fiber web was in the best interests of its shareholders.
With the development of the company, growth is still the focus of the company\'s attention.
In November, the company announced that it would expand its investment in Sweden through a $25 million investment.
It\'s a new 20,000-
Instrument Reifenhauser 4 textile adhesive production line mainly concentrated in the health market.
Newline will replace the old technology and add nearly 50% extra capacity to the Norrkoping site.
Executive call 5.

High quality, very large scale production
Lightweight fabrics for the personal care industry.
Sweden\'s investment followed closely. in 2005, BBA fiber web doubled its textile manufacturing capacity at its factory in San JoseIturbide, Mexico --
2006, industrial fabric capacity in factories in Germany and Brazil increased by 50%.
These latest investment decisions are part of an accelerated drive by Fiberweb to build further competitive advantage through manufacturing.
Adjust the old capacity further and increase the lead-
In the Americas and Europe, Edge technology may soon emerge, and expansion in Asia is the top priority of Fiberweb.
Commenting on the investment, Daniel dayan, CEO of Fiberweb, said, \"I am pleased that we can accelerate the implementation of the health and industrial market strategy through this investment.
Fiberweb will remain market leader in its business-
Competitive in standard products, leading in innovation.
Our Swedish website is an important part of our unique global production network, and this investment ensures its future as an excellent supplier to Nordic customers.
As we look forward to the separation from BBA, it can be seen that Fiberweb continues to grow its business;
Serve customers and bring rich returns to shareholders.

A narrow text message line and a narrow spinning line-
At the factory in WA Washougal, on July, the company closed part of the SMMMS barrier line, the spinning stick line and the co-pilot line located in SC Simpsonville.
The other two production lines at the Simpsonville site are in normal operation and the department headquarters and support structure will remain on site and the office will be merged between fewerbuilding.
Dave Rousse, president, said: \"Closing these lines is a difficult but vital step to ensure that our operations can compete effectively in this very demanding market . \" BBA fiber web health/medical Americas division.
\"Last year, we decided to close the Toronto plant and move the two machines to a more strategic location.
The production line of the reconditionedreio3 to Mexico is now in production.
We are also pushing forward the warehouse expansion at our Green Bay WI plant to commercialize our new professional calendar for Line 3 at Washougal, enhancing our fiber handling capabilities at White, SC and weare are exploring several other promising investment options for simpsonville and other sites.
We regret the impact of the blockade on individuals and communities.
Once we have completed this difficult restructuring, we are optimistic that we will create a stronger business.
\"At the same time, BBA expanded its air operations and built a new line at the Korma plant near Monza, Italy.
Theline\'s $20 million investment will include the next generation of flexible modular aerial laying technology developed by m & J fiber ReTech, a division of Newman.
This will be the second route for BBA.
In 2001, the company began its first air laying business in Tianjin, China.
Despite the ambitious investment plans that BBA has put in place, its raw material prices, like many non-woven producers, continue to struggle.
In the year 2005, the pricing level drove the profit of Fiberweb operations down 10% to 44 million [Pound)
Executives are reported to continue to face pressure.
However, restructuring of the North American health business and other costs
Savings measures are expected to help improve the situation.
The industrial sector of Fiberweb, which does not feel the impact of a sharp rise in raw material prices, serves major markets such as construction, filtration, adsorption agents and other specialized fields.
The company\'s industrial market includes filtering, and its reemay brand products have been successful in the pool and spa markets, while allowing the company to expand the scope of the filter media.
In addition, the company\'s Typar home packaging products continue to perform well in the construction industry due to their strength, tear resistance, moisture resistance and use efficiency.
BBA has been adding new products to its Typar range to enhance the strength of its home packaging products, the target range includes
Specific products such as flashing and coastal packaging.
In addition, the acquisition of Tenotexin 2004 contributed to the growth of BBA.
This key supplier has been added to the European wet wipes market, which has helped the BBA to expand its role in Europe and give it a competitive advantage in many key industrial markets.
Similarly, the acquisition of saffira in 2003 gave BBA Fiberweb access to many new technologies and markets.

In the past 12 months, one of the highlights of this diversified producer of rolling goods has been the start of a new production line in Mooresville, NC, moving its corporate headquarters from Charleston, SC, continues to invest in Latin America and China.
In 2005, PGI achieved $0. 948 billion in sales, continuing the upward trend that began three years ago, when sales were $750-
$0. 78 billion, with new machines listed in North Carolina, Latin America and Asia and starting to contribute to profits, the company is expected to exceed $1 billion.
\"Our growth last year did not even reflect the upcoming investment,\" explains CEO James Schaeffer . \".
\"New production lines in Mexico are included, but most of them are due to increased sales of existing production lines for new projects and new products.
Our sales are growing in an old-fashioned way. We earnedit.
\"One of the company\'s recent initiatives is to build a new corporate headquarters in Charlotte.
Headquartered in Charlotte\'s Harris Corner Business Park, it has about 100 employees in senior leadership, finance, procurement, human resources, sales, customer service, information technology and other administrative positions.
The PGI transfers staff from the headquarters of formerheadquarters in North Charleston and offices in mursville, New Jersey, and Raleigh, NC and Dayton to establish a centralized location.
Tecteoffice brings the company closer to its customers and production operations, aiming to improve operational efficiency and enhance collaboration within the company.
With the establishment of the new headquarters, PGI will continue to maintain the steady growth momentum that began three years ago.
Growth will largely be achieved through a series of new lines that began in early 2006. In the U. S.

In order to meet the product needs of the region, a cutting ceremony was held in NC mulesville to commemorate the completion of the fourth spunmelt production line.
Reifenhauser Reico IV spunmeltline is designed to enhance flexibility.
It can produce higher quality fine Dan materials that are softer and lighter than traditional technologies and improve barrier performance.
PGI\'s spunmelt business is also not new, and in a new plan in Suzhou, China, the company is currently stepping up production of PGI, the largest spinning liquid manufacturer in China, it is also the only manufacturer of vertically integrated finished medical fabrics in China.
The new factory is located near Shanghai and contains more than one
Beam Reifenhauser textile liquid production line, for medical and sanitary applications, as well as finishing production lines for the production of treated medical fabrics that meet the highest quality standards.
According to PGI executives, the creation of the business is the result of its medical converter customers entering Asia.
PGI has also expanded its technical base of existing facilities in the South China Sea, where it operates a sales-
In spinning and onesold-
It uses advanced chemical bonding production lines to serve the medical and medical markets.
This allows PGI China to produce secondary products previously sold only in the US for the health marketS.
And European business.
\"The Asian market is becoming more mature,\" he said . \"Schaeffer said.
\"We love that a large part of the products we produce there are left there.
Some people come back as finished medical products, but the biggest share is intended to be consumed in Asia.
\"In order to give its Asian business a coherent structure, PGI has set up an Asian headquarters near the Suzhou factory this year, combining its manufacturing plant with the administrative functions under oneroof in
\"The new Asia headquarters will promote greater cooperation and cooperation between our teams and put the leaders of the Asian business in the same position as our new manufacturing base,\" said Jay Cheng ,\". Vice President and General Manager of PGI Asia.
Financial operations led by PGI Asia\'s new chief financial officer Z. Q.
Zhan, as well as information technology, sales and marketing and administrative support, will also set up offices in this growing Shanghai region.
Meanwhile, Latin America is home to the company\'s recent announcement of investment, which has been the company\'s strong growth region for some time-
A new spinning liquid production line of Dominion Nonwovens america (DNS)
The Sino-foreign joint venture fund was held in Argentina. The newwide-width, multi-
Beam spunline will more than double the capacity of the joint venture plant to meet South America\'s growing demand for its products and better serve customers in the region.
By the end of 2007, it will produce more than 15,000 tons of non-woven fabrics.
The new line is designed to provide a high level of commitment to health goals
High quality fine Dan topsheet materials and other substrates used in diapers.
The addition of this line enables the company\'s DNS operations to produce materials that meet the highest health standards in the industry.
The expanded capacity will also be used with the coating functionality of DNS to provide more value-
Additional products such as cloth-like backsheet.
This investment follows a similar growth strategy for pgi Latin American operations.
In early 2005, news reports from Cali, Colombia and San Luis Potosi, Mexico, in 2004 have begun, doubling the capacity of the site.
In Cali, the new Reifenhauser series is fully committed to the health market, providing a high quality, fine rejection service
Sheet material for diapers, while in Mexico, a new three
Health marketstroughut America for the production of lightweight materials by the Beamspunbond line.
\"Latin America is a very important part of our entire business . \"Schaeffer said.
\"This is in line with our mission to have the right product at the right price anywhere in the world.
Throughout Latin America, our customer base continues to grow at a very good rate and our production footprint is very good.
We are continuing to expand this scope.
\"While spinning liquid technology has been the main focus of PGI\'s recent investment, the company remains committed to becoming an overall solution provider for the non-woven industry.
\"A lot of people think we only do water Spurs in these areas, but we have a company in China called cali and chemical bond products . \"Schaeffer said.
\"Our goal is to be a full service provider for non-woven and engineering products.
\"PGI\'s full range of services also benefits from its spiky water-thorn technology, which allows the company to target some interesting markets.
There are more than 40,000 tons of materials designated for wet wipes, which of course has become an interesting market for PGI, but the company has moved away from the merchandise space and is worth focusing on Apex\'s imaging technology
\"There are a lot of different materials in the wet wipes market . \"Schaeffer said.
\"We see many different shapes and feelings.
\"The development of cotton is a good example --
Baby wipesby PGI and wet wipes converter NicePak, which includes retail giant Costco, has not only been a success in retail, but has also opened up a new one in the baby wipes market
\"As we expected, we are leading the way in some new applications and new products for Apex . \"
In addition to wet wipes, Apex also allows PGI access to markets including automobiles, carpet liners and filtration.
In terms of filtration, due to the strategic relationship with Donaldson, the durapex media series of pgi now contains oleophobic grass and conduction
These products are suitable for dust removal in manufacturing environments where wet conditions, high temperatures and dust may explode.
\"One thing about Apex is that we really integrate it into many different applications,\" said Dennis Norman, vice president of strategic planning and communication . \".
\"We have a lot of different ways to create real value --
Differentiated products are added.
In addition, while hygiene, medical and wet wipes remain an important part of PGI\'s growth strategy, the same is true for mattress applications and the industrial sector of automotive products, filtration and construction.
\"PGI\'s growth in these areas helps offset the maturity of markets in certain areas of the health market.
\"Health is growing very rapidly in emerging regions, but overall health in the United StatesS.
Not as fast as industry.
Through competition in the industrial sector, we have a huge diversity . \"Norman said.
\"The great potential of industry is organic growth,\" he added . \".
\"Because we started from scratch, we just grew by entering new markets.
\"With factories all over the world, PGI\'s expansion strategy focuses primarily on new production lines, but with PGI\'s capital expansion in the Americas and Asia, significant investments in Europe have clearly disappeared.
PGI executives will not specify their plans in Europe, but mentioned that future growth plans will be implemented in due course, it also stressed that the European part of its business is still important for its position as a global non-woven supplier.
\"I think you will see that PGI is a theme of continuous growth, but it will become stronger and smarter . \"Schaeffer said.
\"We are not just growing up for growth.
There is great potential for growth in this industry.
We believe that we have the ability to be an industry leader, not an industry leader.

Acquisitions and capital investments in the non-woven business area of ForAhlstrom continue, which reports sales and price growth in 2005.
The company attributed much of this success to new acquisitions and new equipment, but attributed its success to a high focus on core markets such as wet wipes, medical care, industry, food packaging and filtration.
\"We are not interested in participating in some niche areas,\" explains Claudio Ermondi . \".
\"Wearen is not just buying for it.
\"The sales growth in 2005 came from an increase in ahlstrom\'s activity on the waterthorn composite production line for CT Windsor Locks, a result of the acquisition of Green Bay non-woven fabric at the end of 2004, it is also the success of the Turin production line. Hyun Poong of Italy and South Korea intends to support the growing non-woven fabric market in the local area.
One of Ahlstrom\'s great tricks is the wet wipes market, through its waterthorn composite production line at the lock andChirnside, Windsor, Scotland, and the Green Bay non-woven factory (
Changed to Ahlstrom Green Bay)
Ahlstrom has added a second water Thorn line there to cope with the increase in demand for wet wipes in North America.
The new line is expected to start production in January 2007.
Despite these coups, Ahlstrom faced some challenges in 2005.
Growth in the European market remains unsatisfactory;
Prices for raw materials, energy and logistics rose in 2005.
Ahlstrom offset these challenges by improving raw material procurement, centralized procurement and using cheaper raw materials as much as possible.
These strategies have nearly doubled Ahlstrom\'s profits and increased operating profits to 117. 2 million [euro].
\"Our strategy is simple . \"
\"We invest in the capacity of new production lines, which will enable us to maintain growth.
\"The acquisition and subsequent expansion of AhlstromGreen Bay reflects the growth of the consumer wipes market, which Ahlstrom is the main supplier.
\"We need more capacity in the North American wireless market . \"
The challenge of wet wipes is to meet the various needs of the converter, such as nature-
This is based on the solubility of wet wipes or water, he continued.
\"They keep asking for new things and it\'s a great opportunity if you can meet those needs.
\"Recently, Ahlstrom has increased its ability to run cotton fibers through the Green Bay Water thorn line in response to increased interest in the wiki market in incorporating cotton into the base.
Most of Ahlstrom\'s efforts in wet wipes are concentrated in North America, but others are on radar.
In the United States, there are still opportunities for big wipes. S. so far,\" Mr. Ermondi said.
\"This is the driving market.
Europe is growing slowly, but South America is still growing small.
We have not seen much growth in Asia.
\"In Europe, Ahlstrom currently operates only one water Thorn line at Chirnside.
Because this market is facing a situation of overcapacity, there may not be a new route in the future of Ahlstrom,
Ermondi does not rule out acquisitions in the region.
Ahlstrom isfiltration has received another area of significant investment and has been producing media in Italy since the 1970 s, mainly for the automotive market.
More importantly, however, the company strives to expand the scope of the business by adding new technologies, most often through acquisitions.
\"It\'s much easier to buy some companies than to start from scratch . \"
These efforts began in 2004 with the purchase of Hollinee LLC\'s filter equipment in the United StatesS.
This gives Ahlstrom instant access to the $0. 5 billion HVAC market and recently includes acquisitions in some filtering areas.
Ahlstrom acquired the filtering business of Lantor, Inc. in December.
Consolidate its position in the air filtration and automatic filtration market by adding additional needle punching production capacity and expanding the product portfolio through high temperature filtration and other professional filtration products.
The acquisition of Lantor will add about $20 million to salesto Ahlstrom\'s filtering business, including Bellingham, mafacability and the new factory in China, which began production in May 2005.
New entity of the United States. S.
Operated in the name of Ahlstrom Lantor LLC. Mr.
Ermondi said that the Chinese business unit of the business showed special growth potential.
\"As demand for power generation increases and industrial manufacturing increases, there is a high demand for air filtration products in China.
In fact, Lantor has established a successful filtering business in the United States. S.
They have passed on this knowledge to China, which will enable Ahlstrom to accelerate its presence in China.
\"Also in December, Ahlstrom acquired the North American absorption materials business of FiberMark and integrated the business into existing products offered by its Mt.
Holly Spring, PA website.
\"This transaction strengthens Ahlstrom\'s position and increases its supply of products in the special filtering market.
We understand the market and have the structure of the service market, we have the right production capacity, we are now ready to become the main supplier of this market.
\"Then, in January, Ahlstrom reached an agreement to acquire HRS Textiles, a supplier of special non-woven fabrics for the North American air and liquid filtration market in South Carolina.
The deal will add $20 million to Ahlstrom\'s filtration business and strengthen its position in air and liquid filtration.
\"Ahlstrom has been filtered for more than 35 years.
We grew up in the field of transport filtration and became one of the biggest players in the field.
We have also accumulated important experience and knowledge in the design and production of filter media.
We then start to reach out to different filter markets, leverage our capabilities and enhance them through selected acquisitions (
Companies that support the market-
How to complement each other-to-
Osdragon technology),\" Mr. Ermondi said.
Also expected to increase the Ahlstrom filtration business is a new fine fiber production line in Turin, Italy, which was put into use in June 2005.
Custom melting based-
The production line can use multi-layer polymers to produce multi-layer and calender products to meet a wide range of applications, especially filtration.
Where traditional meltblown technology produces most of the fiber over one micron, Ahlstrom\'s FineFiber technology produces a much higher proportion of fibermicron range.
More and finer fibers offer many possibilities to improve filtration efficiency while maintaining performance.
In addition, the synthesis capacity of the production line, combined with the capacity to produce multi-density materials, will enable it to create new structures and open up new avenues for the development of filter products.
The healthcare and consumer business of Ahlstrom has also received attention, which continues to benefit from large businesses
In November 2001, the Windsor Lock added the scale compositespunbond series.
While demand for medical non-woven fabrics in early 2006 was weaker than in 2005, Ahlstrom continued to focus on providing customers with higher protection and greater comfort.
In November the range of existing products such as the oslong-aligned Seve, Saudi Arabia Arabian nonwovens producer, selling Medalon series spunmelt medical drapeand gown cloth.
The eco-operation has benefited both companies from saaf\'s manufacturing expertise and innovative product range, as well as toAhlstrom\'s global presence, strong relationships and extensive production capabilities
Mr Ahlstrom said that whether it is through capital investment, acquisition of joint ventures, Ahlstrom is clearly willing to make every effort to develop its non-woven business and that those efforts will continueErmondi.
\"Ahlstrom\'s goal is primarily to continue to expand and further improve its operations by investing in new capacity, new technologies and increasing productivity of existing capacity;
Investment and expansion in Asia, Russia/eastern Europe and the Americas to expand its geographical location and enhance its production capacity through its global customer base and possible acquisitions.
\"Moreover, Ahlstrom will not be accidental.
\"We want to make sure that it will benefit the company if we invest, but that\'s not always the case . \"Ermondi said.
