PORTO ALEGRE - Nonwovens fabric manufacturer Fitesa has signed a deal with technology supplier Reicofil for four new installation projects.
The projects include state-of-the-art equipment that will significantly increase capacity to serve the healthcare and hygiene markets, making nonwovens for medical gowns, drapes, surgical and N95 facemasks, diapers and sanitary products.
The timescale and precise locations of the installations will be disclosed in due course but Fitesa confirmed that its intention was to strengthen its global footprint without a particular focus on any one region.
“For many years Fitesa has been an important player in the healthcare and hygiene markets," said Silverio Baranzano, Fitesa’s CEO. "Together with our commitment to safety, quality, efficiency and sustainability, these new projects will be key to our continued growth and success.”
Fitesa specializes in providing fabrics for use in the hygiene, medical and industrial markets. The company manufactures spunmelt, carded, airlaid and speciality fabrics for applications in baby care, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence as well as for medical, agricultural and industrial products. Headquartered in Gravatí, Brazil and with Executive Offices in Simpsonville, SC, USA, Fitesa has fifteen manufacturing locations in ten countries.
