The new saturator line is expected to be commercial during the third quarter of 2012, slightly ahead of schedule.

“This capacity increase in Turin is an important step for Ahlstrom’s Filtration business area,” said Tommi Björnman, Ahlstrom executive vice president, Filtration.

“We are excited about the new saturator line, which has state-of-the-art control equipment that ensures manufacturing of a very consistent, clean and high quality media,” said Gary Blevins, Ahlstrom vice president, Transportation Filtration.
