Avgol America and YanJan USA have announced a new partnership to deliver exclusive products to the North American market.

As a result of the new partnership, Avgol will be offering apertured spunbond nonwovens made exclusively by YanJan USA using its specific know-how and capabilities. YanJan USA will obtain the base spunbond materials exclusively from Avgol, with the partners developing and manufacturing products tailored to each company’s skill set to meet customer needs.

“This partnership enables both YanJan and Avgol to diversify our overall product ranges and to push effectively into new market opportunities,” said Jian Weng, president and general manager of YanJan USA.

“This is in an exciting partnership for our companies,” added Ronnie Batchler, VP Americas at Avgol. “The spunbond ‘precursor’ material will be specifically designed to meet customer specifications and deliver optimum perfomance. Aperturing of the spunbond will then give the nonwoven material additional unique attributes, such as improved physical performance and aesthetic appeal.

“Avgol will also be able to utilise its North American sales force to promote the new products more actively, as well as making YanJan’s complete product catalogue available to the broader industry.”
