Trevira’s owner Indorama Ventures has approved various large projects at the Guben site, Germany, which will be “of enormous importance” for the entire company, according to Trevira’s CEO Klaus Holz. “These investments are an extremely important signal. They are a reiteration of the long-term commitment of our parent company IVL to Trevira,” he said.

The approved investments will be in the form of equipment that will affect all of the processes (polycondensation, spinning, and textile processing) at the Guben site where Trevira produces filament specialties for the textiles industry.

A total sum of around EUR 7.5 million is scheduled to be invested. These investments will generate additional quantitative growth and optimise processes and procedures at Trevira’s site in Guben where flat and texturised filament yarns are produced for automotive interiors, technical textiles, apparel, and home textiles. “We are very excited about the investments in the new equipment. The Guben site and the Filament BU will be strengthened by these projects,” said Edo Lieven, Head of the Filament BU.
