A common new year resolution for most businesses is improving the bottom line. If you’ve made this a goal, you are most likely looking for ways to save money and might be considering a review of your suppliers.

Writing down goals for 2022

Instead of looking at price alone, there are many other considerations and ways the right nonwovens supplier can help you lower your cost of doing business.


One of the best ways to assure customer satisfaction and keep your business thriving is to deliver a high quality product. When manufacturers try to reduce costs by selecting low quality nonwovens, it often proves to be an expensive decision. They run the risk of a much greater cost, in the form of returned products and compromised reputation, when they put price ahead of quality.

An experienced and reputable supplier will offer you a wide selection of nonwoven fabric, including polyester, cotton, rayon, and bicomponent nonwovens. Look for a supplier that offers virgin grade nonwoven fabric for applications that demand the highest levels of quality and purity.

Capability and Flexibility

Not all nonwovens suppliers are able or willing to accommodate customer specific needs. This often means your product is more expensive to produce due to additional charges or the need for additional suppliers. Look for a nonwovens supplier that offers comprehensive capabilities to handle quick-change challenges, as well as the ability to develop and run new and innovative trials quickly and efficiently.

The nonwovens supplier that will best serve your needs will have a fully equipped facility and comprehensive nonwoven fabric treatment options. Look for suppliers that offer a wide selection of materials, and comprehensive process management to engineer customized, quality nonwoven fabrics. A good supplier will be able to affordably serve both high and low volume needs.

Domestic Suppliers vs Overseas

For U.S. buyers, many advantages come with choosing a U.S. source for their nonwoven fabrics. A domestic supplier will be better able to travel to customer sites as needed. Their team will be able to come to you to discuss new business, pricing, or a quality concern. A supplier that is located in the U.S. is also typically able to offer much better delivery on products. When you are able to count on affordable and dependable delivery from your supply partners, you can be assured of maintaining workflow. You may also be able to reduce the cost of maintaining large inventories with Just-in-Time delivery.
