Trützschler Signs Contract For Nonwovens Line In China, Renames India Subsidiary

A Chinese company has signed a contract to purchase a nonwovens production line from Trützschler
Nonwovens, one of the three businesses that comprise Germany-based Trützschler GmbH & Co KG.
The customer will use the line to manufacture wet wipes.

The line will include the following components from Trützschler Nonwovens companies Erko
Trützschler and Fleissner GmbH: an Erko fiber opening and blending system; and Erko card feeder; an
Erko high-performance card with random technology EK 115/150; a Fleissner AquaJet hydroentangling
system with a working width of 3,600 millimeters; and a Fleissner vertical drum dryer.

Trützschler reports it is optimistic about the future for both its customer and its nonwovens
division in China.

In other company news, Trützschler has renamed its India-based subsidiary. Moving forward,
the group company will drop the name Trumac Engineering Co. Pvt. and will be known as Truetzschler
India Pvt. Ltd. The company is involved in Trützschler’s spinning and card clothing segments, and
also will begin to support its nonwovens division in India.

Trützschler and A.T.E. Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. established Trumac as a joint venture in 1979.
The business began manufacturing blow room machines, and over the years, it added cards and draw
frames to its production line. In more recent years, Trumac has transitioned into making and
marketing Trützschler branded machinery in India. The company has expanded and updated its
manufacturing facilities to support the changes to its product line, and Trützschler decided the
name change would highlight “the transformation from production facility to fully integrated
producer and service provider.”
