WPT Nonwovens is excited to announce the opening of its new facility in Beaver Dam, Kentucky. This property, which was once the abandoned Nestaway plant, has been transformed into our new state-of-the-art nonwovens manufacturing facility. As a nationally recognized manufacturer and distributor of nonwoven materials for a wide range of commercial and consumer products, we are excited for the growth opportunity this new facility provides.
The new facility has provided WPT Nonwovens with 100,000,000 square meters of capacity, ample room for the addition of a new A.CelliSpooling Line. This new equipment addition expands our production capabilities with the ability to produce high volumes of Air Through Bond nonwoven fabric for manufacture of hygiene and personal care nonwovens.
With our new facility and spooling line up and running, we are currently accepting trial orders and welcoming prospective customers to tour our operations. In the days ahead we will continue to ramp up our new operations to meet the growing demand for domestically sourced quality nonwoven fabrics.
This new growth is not only exciting for WPT Nonwovens, it has also been a boon for the Beaver Dam community. The new WPT Nonwovens facility means a robust new source for economic growth. It also means a significant amount of new job opportunities for those in the area. We have already hired many new team members and are continuing to accept applications.
