Sigmatex  (Runcorn, U.K.) has announced a €2.8 million ($3.8 million USD) investment program that will come on stream in the second quarter of 2014. The investment program includes purchase of another state-of-the-art Liba Multi-axial line, which will be further enhanced by a dedicated Meyer Powder Coating line incorporating infrared heating and a belt press, to enhance the company’s strategy for nonwoven fabrics.

Also included is the addition of a number of new Dornier looms to supplement Sigmatex' current production capabilities, and additional new Dornier research and development looms, as well as a significant investment in open reed weaving technology that will provide multiaxial weaving capabilities. The investment in capital equipment is being supported by a significant investment in personnel representing more than a 20 percent increase in operational staff at the Runcorn facility.
