Under the terms of the new partnership, Avgol will offer perforated spunbond products manufactured exclusively by YanJan USA using its specific know-how and capabilities. YanJan USA will obtain spunbond base materials exclusively from Avgol. The partners will each develop and manufacture products tailored to each company’s skills and customer needs.
“This partnership allows YanJan and Avgol to diversify our global product lines and effectively enter new market opportunities,” said Jian Weng, President and CEO of Statesville, North Carolina-based YanJan USA LLC.
“This is an exciting partnership for our businesses,” said Ronnie Batchler, Vice President, Americas Region at Avgol. “The ‘precursor’ spunbond material will be specially designed to meet customer specifications and deliver optimum performance. Opening the spunbond will then give the nonwoven material additional unique attributes, such as enhanced physical performance and aesthetic appeal.
“Avgol will also be able to use its North American sales force to more actively promote new products, as well as make YanJan’s full product catalog available to the entire industry,” he adds.
YanJan said the combination of his expertise and the specialist knowledge of the Avgol team will lead to the availability of some innovative products in the US market. Avgol’s US-based spunbond operation is located in Mocksville, North Carolina.
