Freudenberg Performance Materials Expands Global Presence with 3D Entangled Mat Production Line in China

In a strategic move to further strengthen its position as a leading global supplier of high-performance technical textiles, Freudenberg Performance Materials recently inaugurated a cutting-edge 3D entangled mat production line in Changzhou, China. This innovative investment marks a significant milestone for both Freudenberg and Enka Solutions, promising to revolutionize the supply chain for building, industrial, and civil engineering applications in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

The new state-of-the-art production line in Changzhou complements existing manufacturing operations in Obernburg (Germany) and Asheville (North Carolina, USA), solidifying Freudenberg’s global manufacturing presence on three continents: Europe, Asia, and America. This strategic distribution allows Freudenberg to efficiently serve markets locally, ensuring faster delivery of Enka Solutions products to customers while simultaneously reducing the company’s environmental footprint through increased local production.

During the opening ceremony on July 13, top executives and industry experts gathered to witness the inauguration of the technologically advanced production facility. The occasion was graced with enthusiasm as Freudenberg’s vision of fostering customer-centric solutions took a giant leap forward.

The decision to establish this cutting-edge facility in Changzhou was fueled by the ever-increasing demand for high-quality technical textiles in the fast-growing APAC region. By ramping up Enka Solutions’ production capacity, Freudenberg is poised to play a fundamental role in transforming various technical markets with finished and semi-finished products.

Mr. Thomas Dilger, CEO of Freudenberg Performance Materials, expressed his excitement about this groundbreaking venture, stating, “This new 3D entangled mat production line represents our unwavering commitment to providing innovative solutions that address our customers’ diverse needs across the APAC region. By establishing a local manufacturing hub in Changzhou, we are uniquely positioned to serve our customers faster, more efficiently, and with reduced environmental impact.”

Enka Solutions, known for its cutting-edge applications in building, industrial, and civil engineering projects, is set to benefit tremendously from the expansion. With the new production line in full swing, the company will experience a substantial boost in production capacity, empowering it to cater to the ever-evolving needs of clients across the APAC region.

This ambitious investment by Freudenberg Performance Materials marks a remarkable milestone in the development of the Enka business, signifying a bright future for the company’s presence in the APAC region and beyond. The 3D entangled mat production line promises to redefine the landscape of high-performance technical textiles, propelling Freudenberg to greater heights in meeting customer demands while leading the way towards a more sustainable future.
