It is with extreme satisfaction that A.Celli Nonwovens S.p.A. announces the start of a precious collaboration with WPT Nonwovens Corporation, through the agreement for the supply of a latest-generation winding line for the production of nonwovens.

The important US company specialized in the production and sale of nonwoven products for a wide range of markets (consumer, filtration, industrial, medical), has allocated a 6-million dollar investment for a state-of-the-art production plant.

The installation of the line is earmarked for the first quarter of 2018 and the A.Celli supply, that in addition to the “Stream” Master Roll winding system also includes a Tandem Rewinder and a 6-Unit Spooling System, will be installed in the former Nestaway building, the company’s new facilities in Beaver Dam, Kentucky.

Yet another confirmation for A.Celli Nonwovens technology that is all the more present on US soil and is capable of meeting the needs of different customers, promptly answering the motley production variables with flexibility.

“We’re excited that WPT Nonwovens chose Beaver Dam to grow their business”, states Paul Sandefur, the city’s Mayor. “Any time you have a business willing to make an investment in the community and add new jobs, it’s a good thing. Good news just keeps coming Beaver Dam’s way and that’s good for all Ohio County!”
