EDANA and BCH to host nonwoven training courses in India

By  Tara Hounslea

EDANA, the international organisation representing the nonwoven and related industries, has joined forces with Business Co-ordination House (BCH) to host training courses on nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products in India in March 2013.
The courses are intended for both technical and marketing personnel, with or without knowledge of the nonwovens industry. Led by Jean-Michel Anspach, the technical and education director at EDANA, the courses offer people from all areas and parts of the nonwovens supply chain to quickly gain a complete understanding of the various technologies, processes, raw materials and market aspects of nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products, as well as recommended product stewardship practices.
Mr Anspach has extensive experience within the nonwovens industry, having worked in it for more than 30 years, and has been the leader of these training courses for the last 10 years.
“There has been a lot of positive movement with reference to the manufacturing of nonwovens in India in the last three years,” said Samir Gupta, managing director of Business Co-Ordination House. “Due to this there is a clear need for well trained human resources in order to take this nonwovens industry forward. I am sure that the EDANA training courses, which are acknowledged worldwide, will prove to be the optimum feed for this need.”

“We have a strong commitment to India, and our partnership with BCH has successfully delivered great value to our member companies,” said Pierre Wiertz, general manager of EDANA. “We look forward to our continued association with and support of our members seeking to either partner with local businesses or establish operations across the Indian subcontinent.”
The training courses will be held from March 7-9 in New Delhi, India.
As part of the EDANA Outreach programme to establish conferences and networking events for the nonwovens industry across the globe, particularly outside Europe, the proposed Outlook Asia Conference, initially planned in India, has been relocated to Singapore for 2013, with India to host a complementary event in the near future. In the meantime, participants to the training course will also have the option of combining this with a participation in Outlook Asia, which takes place on March 13-14, 2013 in Singapore.
