Fibertex Nonwovens Expands Gray Court, South Carolina, Factory
Located at 100 Iso Parkway in Gray Court, Fibertex’s expansion will include a second spunlace production line for rolled nonwoven fiber products. Fibertex also acquired an 84-acre industrial plot adjacent to the company’s existing facilities. The expansion is expected to be completed by 2023.
“Market trends are finding support in the added focus on health and hygiene, more emphasis on local production and on sustainability, which is to our benefit. With this new investment, we’ll be able to build an extremely strong position in the important North American market for, among other things, high-performance wipes for sanitizing and disinfection purposes in the healthcare/medical sector, sustainable personal care products, a range of industrial applications, as well as in the automotive industry and the construction sector,” said Fibertex Nonwovens, Inc. CEO Jorgen Bech Madsen.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded Laurens County a $100,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant as an incentive to assist with costs related to this project.
“We are proud to celebrate the expansion of yet another South Carolina company. Fibertex’s decision to further its commitment to Laurens County is proof that South Carolina’s economic development strategy is working, and we look forward to continued success for this great company,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
Founded in 2016, Fibertex operates a state-of-the-art spunlace production line, manufacturing products mainly for the wipes industry.
“Laurens County continues to be a place where business thrives, especially international businesses such as Fibertex. We are excited about their continued growth in Laurens County and the opportunities they are creating for our citizens. We look forward to continuing our already great relationship with their fine company,” Laurens County Council Chairman Brown Patterson noted.
