Capital Investments for 2020
Bouckaert Industrial Textiles is excited to announce the addition of three new pieces of nonwoven manufacturing equipment. This equipment will be coming online in January 2020.
Our white, synthetic fiber production line will see the addition of two new critical pieces of equipment. First, the line is getting a brand new Bematic card. This will improve our quality control and blending capabilities. Additionally, a new up-stroke needle-loom from Shoou Shyng will be added in-line. When combined with the existing down-stroke loom, we will now be able to needle from both sides. Specifically targeting synthetic and glass fiber felt products, this needlepunch line will efficiently produce goods from 6oz per sq yard to 65oz per sq yard in varying thicknesses.
In addition to the improvements to the white line, a second, new Shoou Shyng needle-loom has been added offline to augment our production of grey and colored nonwovens.
Overall, these improvements will allow us to phase out some older equipment and expand our capabilities when it comes to weight, width, and control for our products.
These new capital investments, totaling $1.9 million, will position Bouckaert to be able to continue to meet the current market needs as well as opening access to a number of new markets we plan to enter into in the future.
If you have any questions regarding our new equipment or how this will change our capabilities, please reach out to our Business Development and Marketing Manager, Alex d’Anjou (firstname.lastname@example.org).
