Perlon®, a Serafin Group company, continues to produce its quality filaments at all five sites for customers in the current challenging climate. Production in China has been operating as normal since the beginning of March after having to be temporarily halted due to the spread of COVID-19 in that area. Production is now back up to 100%.
Production in Germany at Perlon® sites in Munderkingen (Baden-Wuerttemberg), Bobingen (Bavaria) and Wald-Michelbach (Hesse) as well the US is continuing to run without any constraints. Therefore all sites are working to full capacity to fulfill all customer orders. In particular, the paper machine clothing area has had an increase in sales which offsets a reduced demand in other areas such as automotive.
