Sandler AG, the leading Bavarian nonwovens manufacturer, has invested EUR 17 million in its Plant 5 building, which encompasses an area 22,750m2 which is scheduled to complete the construction of a new production building by the end of this year.
As a next step, a new nonwovens production line for hygiene materials will be installed. Investing another EUR 26 million in this addition to production capacity, Sandler is also expanding an important sales market, the company reports.
Last year, Sandler also began construction for a new administration building, requiring approximately EUR 5 million in investment. The building that will comprise 1,600m2 of office space on four floors will feature new workplaces, training and conference rooms for the Sandler team that are currently taking shape in Schwarzenbach.
CEO Dr Christian Heinrich Sandler said that it has been more than 135 years they have been closely connected with their Schwarzenbach location and they will continue to invest in the expansion of their competence centre.
The commissioning of their new production line will create up to 50 new jobs. These investments take them one step further towards the realisation of new textile concepts for the versatile market of hygiene products. Their new plant will enable them to render their processes even more efficient and the new administration building will provide their staff with the best possible work environment.
Due to the level of softness and comfort offered by Sandler nonwovens, the companyâ€™s materials can find their main applications in areas, such as topsheet of hygiene products, for example, baby diapers, sanitary pads, panty liners, tampons, incontinence pads and adult diapers.
Extensible nonwovens in diaper ears and other closure systems contribute to perfect fit, the company reports. Latest product variants increasingly commend themselves for application inside the hygiene product. Applied as fluid handling layer they are said to quickly transport fluid away from the body, distribute it evenly and transport it to the absorbent core. Assembly of the new production line is scheduled to begin later this year.
Excavations for Plant 5 began in late March. Plant 5 will be integrated into a comprehensive optimization of the flows of goods, with a view to enhancing customer service even further while maintaining a high degree of flexibility, the manufacturer reports. Size and optics of the new building resemble that of Plant 4, which had been erected in 2011. Plant 5 will thus adopt the colour conception of the existing company buildings, blending in with the overall impression of the company premises.
New parking areas for cars and trucks have already been set up and driveways on the company premises as well as intra-company logistics are being adapted step by step.
