NonWoven Solutions, LLC. - Lifetime of Experience
NWS was formed in May 2007 by a group of investor partners who saw a distinct void in the nonwovens supply chain that could only be filled with a new production line, and thus a new company. The ‘void’ was a strategically located manufacturer of very clean, very uniform needle punched nonwovens centrally located in the United Sates.
Gerald Leineberg, Joe Leineberg, Tom Leineberg, Frank Porto and Steve Brown joined forces to create the new company; aptly named Nonwoven Solutions, LLC. These five men bring a lifetime of experience in nonwovens, in fact over 160 years, as part of the many resources of NWS. The line has been built inside the new 50,000 square foot building in Lakemoor, Illinois. The line has been specified with the latest technology available. NonWoven Solutions, LLC. has committed to run only white synthetic fibers in denier ranges from 1d – 15d. NWS will operate the line according to GMP medical grade standards.
In addition to basic needle punch nonwoven processing, the plant has been further equipped with flame singeing, calendaring, precision slitting in both roll-to-roll and single-knife style. Off-line needling for multi-layer composites and high density felts from layers can also be produced.
