Ahlstrom to install new filter media line at SC plant
May 11, 2007 - Ahlstrom today said that it will invest EUR 8 million in a new needlepunch line at its Darlington, South Carolina, facility, which produces dust filtration products
The new line is slated to come on-stream in early 2008.
The new line will manufacture a full range of needlepunched fabrics, mainly for the high-temperature dust filtration industry, Ahlstrom said.
"The demand for high temperature needled felts continues to grow in North America as industries look to reduce atmospheric emissions and ozone pollutants," said Scott Murdock, vice president Filtration North America.
