Nonwovenn, a technical fabric producer headquartered in Somerset, UK, has spent £7 million in its Bridgwater production plant during the last 18 months.
Despite the disruption caused by Covid-19, the company has purchased the freehold of its manufacturing site, securing its future presence in Bridgwater, and invested in a new chemical bonding nonwovens manufacturing line with additional technologies, providing not only a significant increase in capacity but also access to new product sectors.
Over the last year, Nonwovenn has also made substantial investments in its employees, including the recruitment of commercial director Nigel Hardy, an experienced FMCG sector executive, to guide the company through its next stage of growth.

“Over the last 18 months, Nonwovenn has focused on building manufacturing and commercial capability to ensure we are well positioned to drive growth as we come out of the pandemic,” said Hardy. “Despite the challenging year, we have continued to trade well and are particularly proud of the commitment of our team. We believe that investing in people and manufacturing assets is key to our success. Having invested significantly, Nonwovenn is primed for growth, and I’m looking forward to supporting the business’s exciting strategy.”

The company now employs over 210 employees and has seen revenue increase for the past 12 years. Nonwovenn has successfully positioned itself inside varied and appealing markets with significant hurdles to entry, with over 70% of its operations exported.
Technical textiles from the firm are utilised in a variety of applications, including specialty packaging, advanced wound care, and filtration.
