Approximately 90,000 tonnes of viscose fibres are produced and tested every year at Kelheim in South Germany.From the companyâ€™s production plant and headquarters, located in Kelheim in Southern Germany, its viscose fibre products are used in widely diverse applications ranging from fashion, hygiene and medical products, to the nonwovens industry
CEO Craig Barker said that,â€œOf course, there are bigger viscose fibre plants than ours. Plants that can produce the same amount of fibres in less time. But there is no one else who is able to put more than 80 years of experience in every single one of their fibres.â€ â€œAt Kelheim, there are families working in the third or even fourth generation for our company. Their loyalty as well as their engagement and know-how are the cornerstone of our success: Our employees, together with our consistent innovation strategy and our small and flexible production lines, make us the worldâ€™s leading manufacturer of viscose speciality fibres. To further reinforce that position is our goal for the next million tons of viscose fibres and beyondâ€ he added
Production Manager Konrad Brunner said that, â€œThis speciality fibre is made for the tampon industry, one of the most important pillars of our business. This fibre combines our strengths: unique and patented fibre properties meet production conditions that fulfil the strict hygiene requirements of this sensitive final product. Itâ€™s not by chance that we have established a world-leading position in this area,â€ â€œConsidering that about 5,000 shirts or even 500,000 tampons can be produced from one tonne of viscose fibres alone, we can get an idea of how many people all over the world have come into contact with viscose fibres from Kelheim.â€he added
