Dr. Mehmet Dasdemir appointed Director of Product Development at NWI

RALEIGH, NC, December 1, 2023-

The Nonwovens Institute (NWI) is pleased to announce Mehmet Dasdemir, Ph.D., has been appointed to the position of Director of Product Development for the Institute, succeeding Pierre Grondin who retired from NWI earlier this year after 30 years of service to the nonwovens industry.

In this new role, Dr. Dasdemir is leading the management of NWI’s sponsored product development projects portfolio. He is focused on working with NWI’s industry partners on the development of new nonwoven products and applications, including scale-up using NWI’s extensive pilot facilities. This is an area where NWI brings high value to the nonwovens industry – i.e., in providing an environment where early-stage product designs can benefit from the Institute’s decades of nonwovens application knowledge, along with in-house fabrication and testing capability, to enable proof-of-concept in an extremely cost-effective manner. He is also serving as an internal and external advocate for products developed at NWI.
