About us

KING Nonwovens was established in early 2000 by its owners, Bart van der Hart and Jan van Leeuwen. As the name suggests, the company is specialised in nonwovens: textile produced using a technologically advanced process and consisting of synthetic and/or natural fibres that are linked to each other mechanically and/or chemically.

Nonwovens are used, for instance, in tea bags, nappies and furniture. But they can also be found on roofs, in gardens, in cars and in bullet-proof vests.

KING Nonwovens has many years of experience in the different markets where nonwovens are applied. Therefore we are in an excellent position to respond to the various preferences of our customers. KING Nonwovens can supply custom-made nonwovens thanks to our winding, cutting and printing facilities. Furthermore, we have extensive knowledge of and experience in the field of coating and laminating as a result of our close cooperation with a number of coating/laminating companies.

KING Nonwovens has specialised in spunbonded and needlefelt nonwovens.

Spunbonded nonwovens are made of endless threads bound by heat, mechanically or by binders. This creates strong but relatively thin products characterised by the 'cloud structure'.

Needle-felt nonwovens are made using the needling technique. Here, fibres are layered on top of each other and interwoven by a series of needles with hooks sticking up and down the base fabric.
