Brazilian nonwovens producer Fitesa has signed four new projects with technology supplier Reicofil, which includes state-of- the-art equipment that will significantly increase capacity to serve healthcare and hygiene markets, making nonwovens for medical gowns, drapes, surgical and N95 facemasks, diapers and sanitary products.

“For many years Fitesa has been an important player in the healthcare and hygiene markets. Together with our commitment to safety, quality, efficiency and sustainability, these new projects will be key to our continued growth and success,” says Silverio Baranzano, Fitesa’s CEO.

The exact locations of these projects will be disclosed in due time, Fitesa adds. The intent is to strengthen the company’s global footprint without focus on any one region.

Fitesa is a leader in the nonwovens industry, focused on developing solutions for the hygiene and healthcare markets. The company specializes in the development of innovative products, both independently and in collaboration with customers and partners.
