A.Celli Nonwovens S.p.A., Italy, this week announced the start of a collaboration with WPT Nonwovens Corp., Beaver Dam, Ky., USA, to supply a latest-generation winding line for the production of nonwovens.

WPT Nonwovens, which specializes in the production and sale of nonwoven products for a wide range of markets (consumer, filtration, industrial, medical), has allocated a $6 million investment for a state-of-the-art production plant.

Installation of the new line is earmarked for the first quarter of 2018, and the A.Celli supply, that in addition to the "Stream" Master Roll winding system also includes a Tandem Rewinder and a 6-Unit Spooling System, will be installed in the former Nestaway building, the company’s new facilities in Beaver Dam. 

"We're excited that WPT Nonwovens chose Beaver Dam to grow their business," said Paul Sandefur, the city's Mayor. "Any time you have a business willing to make an investment in the community and add new jobs, it's a good thing. Good news just keeps coming Beaver Dam's way and that's good for all of Ohio County!"

A.Celli Nonwovens offers a comprehensive range of Master Roll Winders and Slitter-Rewinders featuring state-of-the-art solutions customized to spunbond, spunmelt, and spunlace products with a special focus on speed and preserving product characteristics. The machinery range also includes ancillary technology such as automatic knives positioning, automatic core cutting, unwinders, spooling systems and multi-functional lines with printing systems.

In addition to its Italian facilities, the A.Celli Group is present in Istanbul, Turkey (A.Celli Turchia), in Asia with a division in Shanghai (A.Celli Shanghai Machinery Co. Ltd.), and in the Americas (Concord, N.C., USA—A.Celli International Inc.).
