McAirlaid's adding airlaid line in Germany; making improvements worth $7.8 million to Virginia plant

CLOVERDALE, CA, January 10, 2019-

McAirlaid's Vliesstoffe GmbH is adding a new hydrogen-bonded airlaid line at its Berlingerode plant in Germany. The new German line is joining two others at that location plus one in Heiligenstadt, Germany and one in Rocky Mount, Virginia. Meanwhile, its US division is spending $7.8 million to upgrade operations in Rocky Mount. Food packaging appears to be a major end-use target for the Virginia investment.

Local media reports say the Virginia expansion will add 25 jobs at a site that already employs 128.
