Johns Manville (JM) recently announced plans to bring previously shut down capacity back online in order to better serve the overall market demand for microfiber.

“We invested in bringing the additional capacity online in order to better serve our customers’ needs, as well as the growing demand in the market for our world-class products,” said J.P. Blanchard, global manager of JM’s Filtration and Specialty Nonwovens Business.
