Texel, a division of ADS inc. (« Texel »), announces an investment of $15 million for the expansion of its plant in Sainte-Marie and the acquisition of a completely new production line

SAINTE-MARIE, QC, May 16, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The various production and finishing equipment for needlepunch nonwoven materials are currently being installed in the new extension of close to 35,000 square feet in the Sainte-Marie facilities, especially designed to hold the different components of the production line. This new DILO-brand equipment, which is at the technological cutting-edge, will allow Texel to increase its production capacities by more than 7,000 metric tons of transformed fibers per year and will, among other uses, allow for the manufacturing of products with a width of 5.25 meters, the largest in the geotextile industry in North America.

This investment is part of Texel's plans to modernize its equipment so as to develop its six major product platforms. Increasing its overall production capacity will thus allow the company to meet the constant demands from the geotextile, industrial and automotive market segments and to open the way for new business opportunities in these segments in Canada and the United States. Through this investment, Texel has confirmed its dominant position in the geosynthetic market in Quebec, Canada and the Northeastern United States.

Texel has received the assistance of the Canada Economic Development agency, Investissement Québec and Emploi-Québec in the realization of its project.


Founded in 1967, Texel, a division of ADS inc., is a private company recognized today as one of the major manufacturers of non-woven fabrics for technical use in North America. Texel products are marketed in America, Asia and Europe via six product platforms and two affiliated companies.
