Mogul Nonwovens, a leading Turkey based nonwovens manufacturer, has welcomed industry partners and state and local dignitaries to celebrate the Grand Opening of its newest growth venture, Mogul South Carolina Nonwovens.

The new site, operating a 3.2 metre high-speed parallel laid spunlace line with 15,000 metric tonnes of annual capacity, is dedicated to serving the demand for Mogul’s nonwoven technologies in wipes, hygiene, filtration, and automotive markets. Located on 20 acres and over 90,000 square feet of manufacturing in Gray Court, SC, Mogul South Carolina Nonwovens Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mogul Nonwovens.

By expanding into the US market, Mogul says it is positioning itself to better serve existing customers and capitalise on the growing need for high quality nonwoven solutions in North and South America and Asia Pacific.

The new plant will initially meet increasing market needs for high quality spunlace, with plans for expansion in the near future. “This new production asset is a state-of-the-art line with the latest carding technology for superior web formation, outstanding ability to create custom patterns with hydro embossing, and the latest advancements for water and energy conservation,” the company explains. “The Gray Court facility will bring over 70 jobs to the US, adding to the 500 employees currently part of the Mogul Nonwovens group.”
