Thrace-LINQ in Summerville, S.C., announced the completion of the installation of a new Andritz needlepunched nonwoven line. The Thrace Group invested more than $9 million in this project to satisfy the growing demand for high-performance nonwoven fabrics in North America.
This state-of-the- art needlepunched nonwoven line was designed to produce world-class-quality fabrics for geosynthetics, automotive and floor covering markets. An in-line tenter oven and calender, along with finished-width capability beyond 20 feet (6 m) are just a few of the features this equipment offers.
“We are very proud of this cutting-edge production line, and are excited to continue our growth here in Summerville,” said Brian Sparks, general manager of Thrace-LINQ. “This enhancement of capability and capacity will strengthen our competitive position and help us better serve our customers.”
