Owens Corning recently announced a $130 million investment in North America to expand its global glass non-wovens business. The new facility is expected to house a state-of-the-art manufacturing line, coating capability, and research and development activities, with future expansion options. 

“There is a limited supply of glass non-woven products serving the global building materials market today,” said Arnaud Genis, group president. “As projections for long-term growth are optimistic, our customers have been eagerly waiting for Owens Corning to offer more of our unique products and solutions to support and accelerate their growth. This new investment further leverages our integrated position as a glass fiber and glass non-woven supplier, and will complement existing non-woven facilities in North America and Europe to ensure we remain the global leader in glass non-woven technology.”

The North American facility will reportedly use Owens Corning glass fibers supplied from existing facilities and will specialize in glass non-woven applications including wall covering, ceiling and flooring, specialty insulation, gypsum, and automotive products.
