Since 1974 DS Technical Nonwoven is producing needlepunched nonwovens. Our dry-laid nonwovens are used for many different end-applications. Our core business is to produce felts mainly for the geo-, agro- and home textile business. Constantly looking for new applications we can also offer nonwovens for 3D structures, packaging and composites.
DS Technical Nonwoven was one of the first in Europe to introduce renewable materials in its products. PLA f.i. is a compostable material made from plants. We also work with recycled polyester, produced for us by our sister company DS Fibres.
Depending on the needs of our customers we adapt our resources. Our flexibility allows us to serve different sectors of the industry. We work according to the ISO 9000 quality system. Through constant communication with our clients we succeed in realising great projects.
With three production lines we have a capacity of 40 million square meters. A finishing line allows us to offer more complex structures. We maintain good contacts with our partners in order to serve you better.

DS Fibres was founded in 1984, originally as a vertically integrated polypropylene production site for the mother company Dam De Saedeleir.
Nearly four years later - in 1988 - DS Fibres introduced as one of the first companies in the world the dope dyed polyester fibre. This innovation was the beginning of a very successful period as this fibre became rapidly a common material in the automotive industry. Today, DS Fibres is a famous and well-appreciated partner for mainly all important European automotive brands, respected for its quality and service and moreover for its speciality: the coloured fibres.
As a business to business company, DS Fibres holds close contact with his customers and wants to participate in the development of the "automobile of the future". In this respect, DS Fibres develops already since 2002 polyester fibres from recycled materials.
Another important achievement is the launch of BIO-based polyester fibre INGEO™ PLA. DS Fibres is one of the exclusive NatureworksPLA partners with a license agreement. (For more information: http://www.natureworksllc.com/)
Today, we offer our customers a range of polyester and bio fibres from 3,3 dtex to 17 dtex, with staple lengths from 40 to 120 mm. All our fibres can be delivered with a flame retardant treatment and all colors can be developed.
We serve traditionally the automotive and textile industry (carpets, nonwoven and spinning) but we are willing to listen and cooperate with other industries in order to pursue new developments.
