Johns Manville increases European micro glass fiber nonwoven capacity

The micro glass fiber nonwovens are used by Johns Manville as top-performance media in HVAC filtration applications and also as aircraft insulation.

The Berkshire Hathaway company also recently announced a E32 million investment in a state-of-the-art PET spunbond line for filtration products at its production site in Berlin.

“The new capacity in Wertheim and the investment we are making in our Berlin facility are excellent examples of our commitment to the filtration industry,” said Enno Henze, senior vice president and general manager of Johns Manville’s Engineered Products Europe/Asia business. “These investments are part of a strategic plan to support the growing demand for high-end filtration nonwovens.”
