Minneapolis, Minn. – February 4, 2019 – MDI today announced that it is a member of INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, joining hundreds of companies in the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industry across the globe. With facilities in Minneapolis, Cohasset, Hibbing and Grand Rapids, MDI is a nonprofit manufacturer of corrugated standard and custom plastic packaging solutions, offering production assembly and environmental services.
