Bast Fibre acquires Germany’s Faser Veredlung

Bast Fibre Technologies (BFT), a manufacturer of specialty natural fibres for the global nonwoven industry, announces the acquisition of Faser Veredlung Tönisvorst (FVT).

Bast Fibre Technologies (BFT), a
manufacturer of specialty natural fibres for the global nonwoven industry, has
acquired Faser Veredlung Țnisvorst (FVT) Рan ISO 9001 certified textile
processing facility located in Tönisvorst, Germany. This purchase enables BFT
to immediately increase capacity to meet customer demand for its sustainable
bast fibres and provides a firm platform for expansion and continued growth.

With over twenty years of fibre
processing experience, FVT is located within close proximity to major European
centres for bast crop cultivation and nonwoven fabric construction. This
transaction follows BFT’s strategy of establishing low carbon, regional supply
chains by sourcing, producing, and selling within specific regions.

The facility is currently being
expanded with the installation of specialty refining equipment specifically
designed to optimize natural bast fibres for use in a variety of nonwoven
applications. Jim Posa, President, Bast Fibre Technologies, said that, they are
excited to have FVT as a part of their company and that FVT has consistently
produced the highest quality bast fibres for BFT, so it was a logical step to
bring this capability in house.

Using advanced fibre processing
technology, Bast Fibre Technologies transforms raw bast fibres from hemp and
flax plants to meet the exacting standards required by nonwoven customers. Bast
crops are a high biomass annual crop that can alleviate the growing pressure on
global forest resources while absorbing carbon, revitalizing soils, and
preserving biodiversity.

FVT is an experienced and quality
supplier of fibre dyeing, finishing, and blending using environmentally
friendly input materials. A focus on sustainability in production and product
designs has allowed FVT to successfully position itself in the market and forms
an important basis for success at FVT.
