Domtar Corporation, a leading provider of a wide variety of fibre-based products, recently announced its plan to expand its Jesup, Georgia-based Engineered Absorbent Materials facility. This move will help the company become a leading airlaid nonwovens provider. 

The company will add a large-scale Dan-Web airlaid production line to the facility. The machine will be fully operational in 2022. It will enhance Domtar's ability to supply both domestic and global customers with unique absorbent materials solutions.

According to Lewis Fix, Vice President, Commercial Pulp and Airlaid, Domtar, the expansion would be a strategic step toward strengthening their partnership with absorbent hygiene customers throughout the world.

The project will play an integral role in helping the company grow its position as a leading global absorbent materials and technology business offering fluff pulp, and airlaid nonwoven materials.

Domtar's EAM facility has been developing and manufacturing innovative, high-quality absorbent core solutions since 1998.

Domtar makes fibre-based products such as communication, speciality and packaging papers, market pulp and airlaid nonwovens. With annual sales of approximately $3.7 billion, the company has a presence in more than 50 countries and has almost 6,400 employees. The company aims to turn sustainable wood fibre into useful products that people rely on every day.
