Rieter Automotive chooses NSC needlepunch line
|January 21, 2010 (USA)|
Rieter Automotive North America, Inc. Farmington Hills, Michigan, has contracted NSC Nonwoven to provide their equipment for a needlepunching line providing Velour carpet to the Automotive Industry.
The decision to purchase this line is the first since many years for this industry and should prove to distinguish Rieter in this competitive market.
The line will include Thibeau Excelle batt formation with IsoProDyn completed with Asselin needlepunching and the newest SDV Velour needleloom for finishing. This new line will offer high output while maintaining minimum weight variation and improved fiber orientation for consistent strength properties. Manufacturing equipment will be installed in their Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania location.
Included with the purchase is Laroche opening and blending and Signal Machine’s auxiliary equipment.
All after sales service and support will be supplied via NSC USA located in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
