Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

Glatfelter shipped 37,849 tons of wetlaid nonwovens and 23,642 tons of airlaid materials in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Sales for Composite Fibers, the company’s wetlaid business, declined by $2.7 million, or 1.8%, to $147.7 million, because the benefits of higher shipping volumes – arising primarily from the contribution of Spezialpapierfabrik Oberschmitten (SPO), acquired in October 2014 – failed to compensate for $8.9 million of unfavourable currency translation and $3.6 million from lower selling prices. Operating income was also affected by the $2.9 million impact of machine downtime to reduce inventory levels.

The Advanced Airlaid Materials business achieved sales of $65.4 million, again a slight fall on the same period of 2013 and down to unfavourable currency translation, despite higher selling prices.
