Thailand announces newly-created National Nonwovens Fabrics Association

The Thai Nonwoven Fabrics Industry Trade Association (TNFA) has now been officially registered in Thailand, effective from March 25, 2020.

With Thailand a major hub in ASEAN for nonwovens production and usage, this is a very opportune time for TNFA to have created an association of Thai nonwoven companies to come together and provide equipment, products and services for domestic consumption as well as throughout ASEAN and  globally, to service the Disposable Hygiene, Medical, Automotive, Tissue Paper and Packaging sectors.

According to Niwat Lersnimitthum, Chairman of TNFA, “The association will seek to work with other global nonwovens associations, companies, suppliers and distributors that produce equipment, and products, covering the full supply chain for nonwovens from raw material to finished product, to distribution.”

Currently, Thai companies from the nonwoven, textile and man-made fibre industries are working hard to help Thailand fight COVID-19 related issues. Face Masks and Personal Protection Equipment are in high demand during these challenging times. These companies have been working around the clock for the past few months to provide these products and will continue doing so. 

Due to COVID-19 when the demand is high for nonwoven and hygiene products, ranging from face masks, PPE clothes and dry/wet wipes to medical hygiene technology and relevant manufacturing equipment in Southeast Asia and around the world, ANDTEX 2020, organised by E.J. Krause in association with TNFA, to be held November 11-13, 2020, is dedicated to promoting the development  of the nonwoven fabrics and hygiene industry in Thailand and Southeast Asia. The ANDTEX 2020 conference and Expo will have medical nonwovens as a key sector.
