Our Story – Wellman International

Ever Evolving Fibre Science

With nearly 50 years of pioneering fibre production, initially polyester but evolving into a breadth of alternative fibres and technologies to meet the expressed needs of our customers and the demands of the nonwovens market. Wellman continues to change, evolve and succeed.

Wellman has thrived within this arena, applying the expertise gained within the company to the advantage of our customers and learning how to further improve and enhance the performance and efficiencies that our fibres can offer. Times have changed, market requirements, and also Wellman has changed – for the better, embracing this change and making it work for both Wellman and for our customers, setting the company up for further decades to come.

Our strengthened expertise and focus on specialist solutions is represented in our four key segment areas of Hygiene & Healthcare, Technical Fibres, Automotive and Home & Apparel.
