Russian manufacturer of cotton and gauze products Rusavata is celebrating the inauguration of its new Truetzschler line for production of hydroentangled nonwovens at its headquarters in Rjasan. The spunlacing line was officially taken into service in the presence of the Rusvata management, investors, customers, as well as the representatives of Truetzschler Nonwovens and its commercial agency Derux.

Rusvata produced the first roll of cotton in 1896. Today, it is the only company in Russia that has integrated the complete chain of cotton processing for cotton wool and gauze. Rusvata now owns a modern and highly flexible spunlacing line with a monthly production capacity of more than 700 tonnes.

Truetzschler Nonwovens has supplied a complete line consisting of machines for fibre opening and blending, carding, hydroentanglement, drying and winding, all of them manufactured by Truetzschler.

Portfolio expansion

OOO Rusvata started cotton wool production more than 120 years ago and since then developed into the leading Russian manufacturer of cotton and gauze products. It is the only factory in Russia with a full cycle of cotton processing. With more than 250 jobs, Rusvata is the most important employer in the town of Spas-Klepiki. The new investment is part of a long-term modernisation strategy to expand the scope of products.

The fibre material to produce nonwoven fabrics mainly consists of cotton which comes from the company’s bleachery. This ensures that Rusvata can control the fibre quality and react flexibly to changing customer requirements.

The hydroentangled nonwovens are the basic material for cotton pads, wet wipes and other cleaning wipes as well as textiles for medical applications. The wide range of applications makes this line unique in Russia, the company reports. With this forward integration, the company aims to strengthen the region by creating 150 new jobs.


With about 3000 employees, Trützschler is one of the leading textile machinery manufacturers. Trützschler specialises in machines, installations and accessories for spinning preparation, the nonwovens and man-made fibre industry. The headquarters of the more than 125-year-old company is located in Mönchengladbach, Germany. It also has sites in Germany, USA, Brazil, India, China and Switzerland, as well as a number of service centres.

Trützschler Nonwovens is part of Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers and was created through the acquisition and merger of the long-established Fleissner, Erko/Hergeth and Bastian companies. The product range comprises solutions for the entire nonwovens process chain from bale opening, fibre blending and bonding to finishing and winding. The man-made fiber (filament) machinery segment offers extrusion and spinning systems for carpet (BCF) and industrial yarn.
