Perlon, the global manufacturer of synthetic filaments headquartered in Munderkingen, Germany, has celebrated the opening of its new plant in Goa, India, marking a significant milestone in its global expansion strategy.

The Goa plant follows the recent acquisition of Indian manufacturer Shaun Filaments, by Perlon’s owner Serafin. The integration of the Shaun Filaments production facility into the Perlon Group not only offers the opportunity to strengthen market presence, but also to expand capacities and improve production processes.

The opening ceremony was attended by Philipp Haindl, owner of Sarfin and the Perlon management team, along with local politicians and business partners.

“The opening of this plant in Goa is a crucial step in our global growth strategy,” said Perlon CEO Florian Kisling. “We are proud to strengthen our presence in Asia while delivering the quality and innovation that Perlon is known for worldwide.”

The Perlon plant in Goa will play a key role in the production of synthetic filaments for various industries, including paper, technical textiles, brushes, cosmetics and dental care. The acquisition of Shaun Filaments adds not only experienced professionals but also established production lines and technologies to the operation.
