Owens Corning has acquired additional glass fibre knitting equipment at its facility in Rio Claro, northwest of Sao Paulo in Brazil, doubling its capacity to make fibreglass technical fabrics. The addition is the third expansion of capacity since the plant was established three years ago.

This decision was made due to the success of wind blade manufacturers within Brazil, which has caused a rise in demand for fibreglass technical fabrics.

“”This latest expansion to our fabric knitting capacity highlights our strategy to support market growth and emphasizes our commitment to help our Latin America customers grow and succeed both locally and globally,”” said Beth Rettig, OCV Technical Fabrics general manager, Americas.
