Increase in Sales
Schwarzenbach, Germany based Sandler AG again reports an increase in sales to now 322 million Euros.
Sandler AG continues to bank on organic growth, investing its earnings in the further development of its product and technology portfolios. In this way, the company expanded its partnerships with international industry leaders and continued the positive development of all its market segments. In almost all areas of application, the optimum combination of comfort and function takes centre stage.
For hygiene products the trend towards thinner, softer, yet highly functional products continued in 2018. Sandler nonwovens for topsheets – the layer in direct contact with the skin – are particularly soft, also for sensitive skin. Applied as the layer between topsheet and absorbent core, Sandler nonwovens quickly transport fluid away from the body. Extensible nonwovens in closure systems support optimum adjustment to every movement, thereby enhancing wearing comfort. Product properties can be adapted to ideally fulfil the requirements of the specific application. Through the increasing utilisation of natural raw materials, Sandler takes account of sustainability even in disposable products for personal hygiene. Product variants made from fibres from natural sources are compostable as well as free from plastic.
Sound insulation by nonwovens
Quiet surroundings are another key comfort factor. In wall and ceiling systems, partitions, acoustically efficient wall decoration, or in door side panels, pillars, headliner and engine cover in the automobile Sandler nonwovens create a quiet atmosphere.
The Sandler team itself also benefits from the sound insulation provided by nonwovens at their own workplace. By the end of 2018, the renovation of administration buildings 1 and 2 in Schwarzenbach/Saale was completed, with room layouts relying solely on a combination of glass and acoustic walls.
In a special ceiling construction, Sandler nonwovens function as sound absorbers for optimum acoustics and create an individual look at the same time. A state-of-the-art lighting installation blends seamlessly into the arrangement. A colourful wall installation – created especially for Sandler by a local artist – proves that nonwoven acoustic panels can become veritable design elements through the application of various finishes such as printing, lamination or other coatings. The renovation involved a total investment of approximately 7 million Euros.
This year Sandler, a family-owned and .operated company, celebrates its 140th anniversary. In 2018, the Sandler team welcomed 30 new colleagues in Schwarzenbach. A junior management programme was started, preparing participants for career paths in management positions. The intra-company training course “nonwovens expert” expands on the participants’ expertise regarding raw materials, nonwovens production, occupational safety, quality insurance and business basics.
