About the company
Our manufacturing process
Sporda Nonwoven is one of Scandinavia’s leading producers of nonwoven products. Our process is similar to a process industry with a continuous flow from raw material to finished product. Parts of our process are described in the slideshow below.
Raw material stock. Bales with wool, cotton, hemp and synthetic fibres.
Rolling. The fibres are carded by rotating rollers and form a “carpet.” Several layers of this are placed in the manufacturing process depending on the density and thickness of the material to be manufactured.
Our process line is continuously monitored and is computer-controlled.
The nonwoven product comprises several layers which are either pressed and bonded together through heat treatment, referred to as ‘thermobonding’ or mechanical needle punching, where lots of needles with barb penetrate the material and the fibres are then bonded together.
Further in the process the material is pressed together using heat to obtain the desired density and thickness. Thereafter the material is edged and rolled up.
It is becoming increasingly common for us to deliver material to customers as sheets as this allows it to be used directly in the customer’s manufacturing process.
Sporda Nonwoven also offers punched and cut-out shaped products through collaboration with subcontractors.
Deliveries to nearby areas take place with own vehicles.
Large and long deliveries take place with experienced forwarding agents in order to guarantee safe deliveries.
The company has been owned and managed by local entrepreneurs since 2016. The company’s management team comprises Jonas Rylander, Anna Hallberg and Denan Cisic. The company’s name was changed to Sporda Nonwoven AB in connection with the change in ownership. We aim to further develop and modernise the company in order to continue to retain our strong market position in Scandinavia, where there are many well-reputed brands among the customers within all product segments.
Our development work takes place in close collaboration with our customers and testing institutes in both Sweden and Europe in order to fulfil applicable legislation, product requirements and customer specifications.
