Indefatigable nonwovens pioneer retires

News | June 1, 2008 | By:

During his nearly 4 decades with Fleissner, Alfred Watzl exerted a decisive influence on the development of nonwovens installations. Under his direction in sales and marketing, a variety of technical textile equipment innovations was developed, built, and sold worldwide, including the Fleissner “AquaJet” components for airlaid web lines for man-made fibers. Recently retired, Watzl helped Fleissner advance as a leading supplier in many fields of the textile machinery and equipment market.

Rüdiger Weinhardt has taken over responsibility for all Fleissner marketing and sales activities.
