In fact it is the philosophy at Sioen to have operational excellence in all we do.
Geotextiles are specialist nonwoven products that most of us don’t even get to see; however, they have become essential ingredients for the construction industry, including road building and foundations for buildings, as they reinforce the soil and stabilize the ground, making areas much more secure for building on. Manifattura Fontana, situated in Valstagnajust north of Venice, was established around 200 years ago, originally discussions, which ended in the acquisition of the company by Sioen in April 2016.“Manifattura Fontana has an excellent reputation in the production of geotextiles so this was a fantastic opportunity for us at Sioen to get a foothold in theindustry,” says Speltdoorn. Although the company had a goodreputation for excellent geotextile products, the management at Sioen could see enormous further potential inspinning and weaving wool, but has beena specialist in the field of geotextiles since the 1960s. The company was recently acquired by Belgium-based textile giant Sioen Industries, a niche manufacturer of specialist textile products with operations in over 20 countries.
