Germany’s Bast Fibre to acquire Lumberton Cellulose in North Carolina

Jan 17, 2022

Pic: INDA Bast Fibre has entered into an agreement to acquire Lumberton Cellulose (LC), a natural fibre processing facility located in Lumberton, North Carolina from Georgia-Pacific Cellulose. Bast Fibre is a triple-bottom line cleantech fibre engineering firm manufacturing specialty natural fibre for applications throughout the nonwovens and textile industries. The purchase of LC builds on Bast Fibre’s existing relationship with Georgia-Pacific. In February of 2020, Bast Fibre licensed a suite of patents relating to the use of bast fibres in a variety of nonwoven products and processes from Georgia-Pacific consumer products on a global, exclusive basis. The LC facility is a highly automated, quality producer of natural fibres for the personal care and hygiene markets. Ideally located to serve Bast Fibre’s North American customers, Bast Fibre plans to grow and invest in the operation, establishing LC as its flagship US manufacturing site and opening new opportunities and markets for North American hemp and flax growers, the company said in a press release. “Acquiring this state-of-the-art natural fibre processing facility and integrating the great team at Lumberton enables Bast Fibre to immediately establish North American manufacturing operations to meet the rapidly growing demand for our sustainable natural fibres. Following our recent acquisition of German-based fibre processor FVT, this is another key step in our long-term strategy of building significant high quality manufacturing capacity for our global customers supporting our core mission of ‘grow local, process local, sell local’,” Bast Fibre CEO and chairman Noel Hall said in a statement. Bast Fibre has entered into an agreement to acquire Lumberton Cellulose (LC), a natural fibre processing facility located in Lumberton, North Carolina from Georgia-Pacific Cellulose. Bast Fibre is a triple-bottom line cleantech fibre engineering firm manufacturing specialty natural fibre for applications throughout the nonwovens and textile industries. “This acquisition is a key strategic milestone in our mission to build out significant manufacturing capacity while supporting the vast potential of North American grown hemp and flax. Lumberton Cellulose is a top producer of quality fibre and with the current infrastructure and excellent, highly experienced team at Lumberton, we expect to significantly expand the facility’s production capabilities over the next few years. This acquisition will play an integral role in supporting North America’s transition away from plastic and manufactured cellulosic fibres and toward a more sustainable future,” Bast Fibre president, Jim Posa said. “The Lumberton Cellulose team is excited about the opportunity to join the BFT team and expand our business. The acquisition is a good fit for our employees and our capabilities as we continue supplying current customers including Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products, while growing and building additional bast fibre capacity and creating new customers,” Chuck Oxendine, Lumberton plant manager said. The final purchase will close in Bast Fibre Tech’s first fiscal quarter, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Fibre2Fashion News Desk (GK)
