Minneapolis, Minn.-based Conwed plastic-netting manufacturer, is marking its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a campaign theme “Celebrating Our Past, Engineering Our Future.” Since 1966, Conwed has developed netting solutions for hundreds of industrial and consumer products worldwide, and now has five manufacturing locations on two continents, more than 400 employees and a global distribution network.
Conwed netting is used to reinforce, protect, contain, separate, laminate and stretch a wide range of materials and substrates in various industries. “Our netting helps make products lighter, stronger and more durable. Netting sometimes may not be easily visible, but it hides behind the scenes in products we all use on a daily basis”, said Ivan Soltero, strategic marketing manager.
In the past decade, Conwed has expanded into porous pavers, rug liners, reverse-osmosis feed spacers, elastic hygiene composites, packaging multilayer netting and high-temperature netting for automotive, oil, hydraulic and liquid-filtration applications.
