New WPT Nonwovens Facility Nears Completion

February 28, 2018 – Beaver Dam, KY — WPT Nonwovens is excited to announce completion of the exterior renovations phase of its facility redevelopment project in Beaver Dam, Kentucky. The project, which began last July, involves the transformation of the area’s abandoned Nestaway plant into a thriving new manufacturing facility for WPT Nonwovens, nationally recognized manufacturer and distributor of nonwoven materials for a wide range of commercial and consumer products.

The exterior renovation phase of the project included extensive clean-up, the application of fresh exterior paint, and the installation of a new roofing system. Interior renovations are also nearing completion with the removal of 20 tons of scrap iron, new paint, upgraded dock doors, and a completely renovated office area. The installation of the new WPT state-of-the-art nonwoven production line is underway and is scheduled for completion in mid-May.

The new facility will provide WPT Nonwovens with 100,000,000 square meters of capacity to produce air through bond nonwoven fabric for fabrication of hygiene and personal care nonwovens as well as a variety of filtration media nonwovens.

For the Beaver Dam community, the new WPT Nonwovens facility means a robust new source for economic growth. It also means a significant amount of new job opportunities for those in the area. According to company vice president and general manager, Travis Robbins, the company has already heard from many qualified candidates. “We are excited about the job applications coming in and hope to see more as we get closer to our grand opening in May,” said Mr. Robbins.
