Oct 5 16
Freudenberg & Co. KG has announced a new production line for car headliners into operation at its Suzhou site in eastern China. This enables Freudenberg & Vilene Nonwovens to meet increasing demand for high-quality car roof linings and especially for quality printed products in Asia. The company is currently the only manufacturer in China with its own printing facility. Freudenberg Performance Materials is the specialist nonwovens arm of Freudenberg. In China, it is represented by Freudenberg & Vilene Nonwovens, a joint venture with Japan Vilene Company, Tokyo. Freudenberg & Vilene Company headliners are based on nonwovens and can be finished in various ways to provide additional functionality. Apart from excellent abrasion resistance, outstanding acoustic properties and improved stain resistance, these products contribute to a marked reduction in vehicle weight when combined with other vehicle components. In addition, the company also uses a proportion of recycled products in the manufacture of its products. In this way, Freudenberg helps its customers to reduce their environmental footprint. The new facility will enable the company to increase its production volumes.
