The additional production will support the successful launch of Technostat Plus and the ongoing demand for Technostat.
 
The company currently manufactures Technostat and Technostat Plus media in Europe.
 
The Floyd production line is expected to begin operation by the fourth quarter of 2014.
 
“This strategic expansion of our Floyd site will provide capacity to support the increasing demand in North America for high performance synthetic filter media,” said Mike Clark, Hollingsworth & Vose division president, High Efficiency and Specialty Filtration.
 
“We are very pleased to continue to grow and invest in Floyd, Virginia. Hollingsworth & Vose has been operating there for nearly 40 years. We are fortunate to have a lot of great people and we appreciate the support from Floyd County and the State of Virginia,” said Hollingsworth & Vose president and CEO Val Hollingsworth.
