RKW Group to Expand in Germany
The RKW Group will invest more than EUR 1 million in the Unseburg site between February and July 2016 to be prepared for further profitable growth. With this investment, the RKW Group is reinforcing its commitment to the Saxony-Anhalt region in the Eastern part of Germany. The investment includes an additional 20 silos for raw material storage as well as a blown film line which will allow the Site to manufacture high-quality plastic geo-barriers for construction, environmental and civil engineering applications for the first time. Furthermore, 10 new production jobs are currently being created at the Unseburg site.
On highly advanced and efficient production lines, RKW Unseburg manufactures films for agriculture, landscape gardening and the construction industry. As a modern and future-oriented site, Unseburg has an in-house recycling plant (capacity: 2,500 t per year) which allows the re-use of selected in-house production wastes in a closed circuit.
The RKW Site in Halberstadt, Germany, manufactures hydroentangled spunbond and thermobonded spunbond nonwovens, and is a global technology and innovative leader in this field. The world’s first line for the large-scale production of hydroentangled spunbond nonwovens enabled RKW to be the first manufacturer to develop and produce endless-filament nonwovens in an in-line process. Under the brand name RKW HyJet, these products are used, for example, as surface protection and as acoustic nonwovens in the automotive industry as well as in the growing hygiene market for personal care and medical applications.
