Andritz to supply complete spunlace line to wipes producer in Colombia

International technology group Andritz has received an order from the Colombian wipes converting company Quimicolor to deliver a complete neXline spunlace line for nonwovens production to its Medellín plant. The start-up is scheduled for the Q4 2023.

This will be the first spunlace line in South America outside of Brazil. The line will process viscose and polyester fibers to produce over 10,000 tons of nonwoven roll-goods per year for conversion to wipes.

With this investment, Quimicolor is adding its own roll-goods production line to its existing converting plant for the production of wipes. On-site production of roll-goods will have the added benefit of avoiding the intercontinental shipments needed before and thus substantially reduce the company's carbon footprint.

Thanks to Andritz's support in accessing financing solutions, Quimicolor has obtained attractive financing for this investment through a buyer's credit under the French export promotion scheme.

Based in Medellín, Quimicolor has been producing skincare and household products for the Latin American market for more than 18 years now.
