Andritz To Supply Complete Spunlace Line In Colombia
German nonwovens technology manufacturer Andritz will supply a complete spunlace line to Colombian wipes producer Quimicolor.
According to Andritz, this will be the first spunlace line in South America outside of Brazil, and will include the 130th TT card sold by Andritz.
“The line will process viscose and polyester fibers to produce over 10,000 tons of nonwoven roll-goods per year for conversion to wipes,” Andritz said.
With this investment, Quimicolor is adding its own roll-goods production line to its existing converting plant for the production of wipes.
“It will thus be able to control the quality of the products over the whole supply chain and make production more efficient as well as flexible,” the German company added.
With Andritz’s support in accessing financing, Quimicolor has obtained attractive financing for this investment through a buyer’s credit under the French export promotion scheme.
