EcoWipes is a young, innovative company that has become a leading manufacturer and converter of private label products for the hydro-entangled nonwoven segment. The firm, which is located to the north of Warsaw, was established in 2009 and has now already ordered its third nonwovens production line.
EcoWipes has a strong focus on innovation and sustainability and intensively monitors local and global market trends. In view of the rising consumer interest in biodegradable materials, EcoWipes opt for partners Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith to supply the new production line. The progressive and sustainable WLS (wet-laid spunlacing) concept developed by the two companies for manufacturing wet-laid hydroentangled nonwovens is a perfect fit for the EcoWipes product range. It is ideally suited for producing flushable wipes but also recyclable and biodegradable products. These materials meet consumer preferences for greater sustainability at the end of the product cycle.
The sale of this fifth WLS facility is testimony to the successful collaboration between Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith as established technology leaders in the wet-laid hydroentangled nonwoven segment.
The new production line at EcoWipes is a flexible wet-dry nonwoven facility. Voith is supplying the HydroFormer, one of the main components of the new line. The HydroFormer concept builds on Voith’s long experience in the paper and pulp industry. With HydroFormer technology the suspension is highly diluted, so nonwovens can be produced entirely from cellulose, a renewable and cost-effective raw material.
Trützschler Nonwovens is not just responsible for the hydroentangling, drying and reeling up, but will also supply its latest high-speed card. This flexible configuration enables EcoWipes to produce a broad product range of wet-laid/spunlaced or carded/spunlaced nonwovens.

New construction of Mahlo assembly hall in full swing
In November 2017 the first cut of spade took place, today the first steel girders of the new assembly hall of Saal machine builder Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG rise up into the sky. Moving in in the summer is firmly planned. Because up until now, everything is on schedule, production manager Oliver Kastl says.
“The earthworks and foundation work were completed at the end of last year right on time, as well as the building of cable routes.” The mild weather in the first winter months surely was helpful. Now, the steel construction, that is the basic structure of the hall, will be finished. Then base installation, wall covering and the roof follows. “The cold temperature of the last weeks were a challenge, of course”, so Kastl. “But the staffs of Probst Company, that install the girders high up in the air, were not impressed by sub-zero temperatures.” The next big step in the construction plan is the installation of the indoor crane, which will transport heavy parts or complete machines from point A to point B.
But before men and machines can move into their new home, the interior construction for twelve work places in assembly and the offices are made in midyear. Of course with regards to work place ergonomics and environmental protection, as Kastl confirms.
With the modern extension, Mahlo meets the need of an increased demand for measure and control technology in the world market. In addition to that, they want to further strengthen the head quarter in Saal as the only production site.
