To strengthen its market position for complete production lines Dilo has acquired a majority stake in Temafa. Dilo is the only group offering complete lines, which has now concentrated the know-how from the fibre opening to the needled end product in-house.The long term interests of the dilo group have been secured by this measure. Based on the close connection with Temafa GmbH ,Dilo expects even better opportunities for complete lines used in the production of natural fibre nonwovens.For the Dilo Group Temafa GmBh is not a new partner because in recent years they have realised numerous projects together. In the Temafa machinery program the processing of natural fibres including fibre extraction plants is important.Automotive industry will need more nonwovens made of natural fibres because of rising oil prices and the ecological concerns which are considered increasingly important . From may 9,2005 Temafa is a member of the dilo group and remains an independent company located in Bergisch Gladbach under the proven direction of Mr Norbert Morgner.
