The annual production capacity of the RF5 Bico FHL R&D 2F production line will depend on the raw materials used as input and the materials produced and will reach 8-15 thousand tonnes. The installation of the production line will not require significant changes to infrastructure at the Znojmo plant. It is expected to be put into commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“The signing of this contract continues on from the Memorandum of Understanding concluded for the delivery of this semi-commercial production line announced at the end of September this year. As has already been communicated, the production line is based on an entirely new technology and represents a unique opportunity for our further development and the commercialisation of new products,” said František Řezáč, CEO and Member of the Board of Pegas Nonwovens.

Pegas Nonwovens, founded in 1990, is a leading producer of spunmelt nonwovens in the EMEA region. The company’s products are used primarily in the personal hygiene products market. The manufacturer produces polypropylene / polyethylene nonwoven textiles principally for use in disposable hygiene products (such as baby diapers, adult incontinence and feminine hygiene products) and, to a lesser extent, in construction, agricultural and medical applications.

Currently, Pegas runs two plants with a total of eight production lines in the Czech Republic and one production line in Egypt. The total production capacity of the company is currently up to 110 thousand tonnes of nonwoven fabric per annum.
