Fibertex presence in France
In 1996 Fibertex France was established as a sales subsidiary mainly responsible for selling Geotextiles and has been a key player on the French market for geotextiles since then. Later on the product range was expanded to include products for furniture and bedding applications.
In May 2011 Fibertex Nonwovens acquired 85.7 of the shares in the French nonwovens manufacturer Tharreau Industries, now Fibertex Nonwovens S.A.S., Chemillé. The acquisition was part of a targeted strategy to become a leading supplier in Europe, and the business areas of the two companies both complement and strengthen each other. Today, Fibertex Nonwovens A/S has 100% ownership of Fibertex Nonwovens S.A.S., Chemillé.
