Ahlstrom-Malmedy Munksjö’s factory in Belgium is on track to increase manufacturing capacity. The €10 million expansion, announced in January 2020, would more than quadruple the plant’s capacity and expand output to include filtering materials. The investment will result in the creation of 40 new employment opportunities in the area.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a major provider of wallcovering materials, offering a wide range of high-end nonwovens. The market for high-end wallcoverings is projected to develop further due to rising demand for digitally printed wallcoverings, new and creative textures and colours, and increased customer desire for home décor and new interior design trends.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a global leader in the supply of high-quality filtration materials for the industrial and transportation markets.
“This investment will enhance Ahlstrom-position Munksjö’s in providing innovative fiber-based solutions for both the wallcovering and filtration markets.” It demonstrates our flexibility in reacting to changes in market demand and allows us to continue to assist our clients in the future,” says Pierre Mary, vice president of Nonwovens and Abrasives.
