Foss Floors, a specialist in needled carpeting, has ordered a new production line from DiloGroup. The new line will be the company’s 4th complete Dilo line and will enlarge its production capacity.

In recent years, Foss Floors has become a major player in DI-LOOP carpeting, including structured surfaces in rib and patterned quality. Mainly because of the high quality requirements for the carpet product and a wide range of modern design patterns, needlefelt floor covering appeals greatly to architects and contractors for homes and commercial buildings, Dilo reports.

The range of aesthetically unique patterns and colours impresses by its tastefulness and timeless designs, Dilo says, and the aim of gaining highly efficient additional capacity corresponds to a high demand for this particular carpeting at Foss Floors.

DiloGroup has engineered the latest high-tech production system together with Foss, tailor-made for the company’s needs. It will have a large production capacity at high fibre throughput rates, comprising fully automatic fibre opening and blending from Dilo Temafa, carding from Dilo Spinnbau in a wide working width, high-speed crosslapping as well as pre- and finish needling, designed for final product widths over 6 metres. The specialty DI-LOOP machine with high-speed feature in a working width of 6.5 metres, will complete the production plant for the DI-LOOP carpet sector.

The total plant is to be delivered, assembled and commissioned by DiloGroup as general contractor.
