Rusvata Adds Spunlace Capabilities

Rusvata has completed a new Truetzschler hydroentangling line at its headquarters in Rjasan, Russia. Rusvata has been in business since 1896 when it produced the first roll of cotton; today it is the only company which has integrated the complete chain of cotton processing for cotton wool and gauze. Rusvata's latest investment, a modern and highly flexible spunlacing line, will allow it to make more than 700 tons of nonwoven material per month.


The new production line includes fiber opening and blending, carding, hydroentangling, drying and winding capabilities. Derux Group, a commercial agency, with more than a decade of experience in the Russian market, was involved in the project as commercial agency.


Rusvata will mainly use cotton, sourced from its own bleachery, to make nonwovens.  This ensures that Rusvata can control the fiber quality and react flexibly to changing customer requirements. The hydroentangled nonwovens will be used in cotton pads, wet wipes and other cleaning wipes as well as textiles for medical applications. The wide range of applications makes this line unique in Russia. The new capabiltieis will add 150 new jobs to the region.


The new investment will allow Rusvata, Spas-Klepiki's most important employer, to add 150 new jobs to its operation. The company makes medical products such as cotton wool, bandages and gauze for medical institutions and pharmacies all over the country.  The new investment is part of a long-term modernization strategy to expand the scope of products such as cotton buds, cotton pads and nonwoven towels.
