Ahlstrom-Munksjö introduces FibRoc®, a new product platform of high performance solutions for durable applications
FINLAND (News release) -- Ahlstrom-Munksjö reinforces its leading position in high performance solutions for durable applications, by launching Ahlstrom-Munksjö FibRoc®. The Fibroc® platform will bring together a wide range of high performance products under the same brand, making it easier for business partners to recognize and understand the offering across the value chain.

"Thanks to its unique know-how and very wide technological platform, Ahlstrom-Munksjö has been able to create, throughout the years, an extensive range of high performance solutions specifically designed for durable applications," says Daniele Borlatto, Executive Vice President, Filtration & Performance. "As the demand of high performance media for durable applications continues to grow, including in the building industry, we saw a need to create a new product platform to simplify our product offering and make it easier for the major stakeholders along the value chain to understand our offering," he adds.

"We have, in our respective businesses, established a leading position in various segments of the building industry; in flooring applications the glass veils we produce in Tver and Karhula are used throughout the world, helping our customers run their manufacturing lines with maximum efficiency," says Pekka Helynranta, Vice President, Glass Fiber Tissue.

"In the Nonwovens business, we have developed a unique know-how when it comes to high performance facers for technical plasterboard applications, helping our customers to create new solutions for the most demanding applications," adds Pierre Mary, Vice President, Nonwovens. "FibRoc® will give us the required identity to present in a simple and straightforward manner the extensive product range we can offer to the market, making it much easier for our targeted customers to understand our full product offering, regardless of technology and place of manufacturing," Pierre and Pekka conclude.

At this point, the main manufacturing platforms for the Fibroc® offering will be Karhula (Finland), Tver (Russia) and Brignoud (France); these 3 plants are fully certified for quality (ISO 9001), safety (OHSAS 18001), and environmental (ISO 14001) standards.

The first product offering from the Fibroc® platform will be focused on the flooring market and be rolled out later this year.
