FiberVisions, a leader in developing, manufacturing and marketing polyolefin staple fibers for nonwoven applications, has operated at its Covington, Ga., location for 50
years. The plant began in 1967 as Hercules Incorporated, providing polypropylene fibers to the carpet and upholstery industries. In the early 1980s, Hercules’ focus shifted to staple fibers for the hygienic and industrial markets. The Hercules Fibers group formed a joint venture in 1997 with the Danaklon Group of Danish company Jacob Holm & Sons, becoming FiberVisions; and was acquired by Indorama Ventures Limited in 2012. Currently, the facility employs 230 people and has capacity to produce 180 million pounds of olefin-based fibers per year.
