R&D

At International Fibres Group we’re proud of our market-leading polypropylene fibres and yarns, which are distributed globally, to a variety of markets and industries.

We are committed to excellent worldwide customer service. Whilst also maintaining a strong focus on research and product development. As a result, we have pioneered new and innovative fibre solutions for a wide variety of customer partners.

We produce both staple and short cut fibres, and continuous filament yarns, with an annual capacity of over 90,000 tonnes to satisfy a dynamic customer base. Working closely with all our customers, we ensure that the products and services we offer are precisely matched to their requirements. We employ a specialist in-house technical support team.

We manufacture a vast array of colours and titres to exacting quality standards, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure we excel at meeting our customer’s requirements.

Our team are constantly researching and developing new ideas with our values and goals embedded in sustainability, recycling, future polymer technologies, and technical performance-based characteristics. In 2019 our Group Innovation Department in Linz, Austria, will launch a research and development line in conjunction with the University of Maastricht. This line will test and research a variety of products focused on future technologies. The facility, run by both IFG and the University, will be available to other partnering companies, with a view to running larger production runs of successfully tested products over time.

Our dedicated R&D and technical teams, and our diverse range of production equipment, together with our customer focus, enables us to provide bespoke, innovative and flexible supply solutions, from initial concept through to delivery.
