Ten how to save more money fast questions for bart van malderen – drylock technologies

“we’re the first supermarket in the UK to be using how to save more money fast the drylock technology in our nappy range and we’re really excited about it,” said lidl spokeswoman georgina O’donnell. “we’re experiencing a baby boom in the UK at the how to save more money fast moment so this is the optimum time to be developing how to save more money fast and expanding the range. Our current toujours nappy range has been awarded ‘mumsnet best’ for the past three years in a row, beating branded nappies and other supermarket own-label products, so this is a really strong category for us. More and more parents are looking to try own-label nappies as word of mouth spreads about the product how to save more money fast quality, and

Bart van malderen: I began in this business over thirty years ago at how to save more money fast ontex, which was founded by my late father and I eventually how to save more money fast became CEO. Ontex grew both organically and via acquisitions throughout the 1990s how to save more money fast to become europe’s largest manufacturer of hygienic disposables for private label. In 2003 I decided to sell the business to private how to save more money fast equity firm candover, staying on as CEO and then chairman before leaving the how to save more money fast company. I was involved in other areas of business and really how to save more money fast had no intention of coming back into it.

BvM: I guess it never really left me after working on how to save more money fast all those projects with my father in the family garage how to save more money fast all those years ago as a teenager. I kept following the new developments but what struck me how to save more money fast was that there were so few real innovations going on. Diapers were getting thinner and thinner, with less and less fluff pulp and more SAP, but even so, it took thirty years to go from a 75gsm product how to save more money fast to a 35 gsm one, with the P&G introduction of drymax. I studied the patents looking for a route, because everybody knew diapers had to get down to being how to save more money fast completely fluff-free. And working with my process team we came up with how to save more money fast that missing link.

We acquired the company hygiene technologies in nizhny novgorod in how to save more money fast russia in 2011 – a purpose-built hygiene products site with experienced staff that is active how to save more money fast in both branded goods and private label, at the heart of a fast growing market. We then started up our first greenfield plant in hradek how to save more money fast nad nisou in the czech republic, where we have strong cooperation with local authorities and education how to save more money fast and research centres, and also the capacity to add a further 12 high-speed manufacturing lines. And we’re currently building a second russian plant further east in how to save more money fast kazan which will become operational at the end of 2014.

AW: so what about the technology you’ve developed? BvM: we’ve filed patents on our technology. Not using fluff pulp meant having to totally re-think the whole way the lines would work. The trick is to take that 15 grams of powder how to save more money fast – like a handful of sugar – and insert it into between eight hundred and a thousand how to save more money fast diapers a minute and also to ensure that at these how to save more money fast extremely high speeds, the SAP distri- bution is extremely even at the front, in the middle and at the back of the core. And to get that even distribution without using glue.

With that achieved, the advantages are many. First there’s the absence of the fluff pulp itself and no how to save more money fast chemicals required for treating it. This also greatly reduces the environmental impact of transportation, but that fact that the products are up to 50% thinner than standard products means our customers save a great how to save more money fast number of trucks each year in any case, and it’s not just transport costs that are reduced. There’s less warehousing and less packaging material involved too, and generally more efficient handling as a result.

BvM: they certainly have been, but extremely exciting at the same time. For the first six months after the lidl launch I how to save more money fast was extremely nervous. We had invested over €100 million and it was a completely new product. People didn’t believe it would work, but it’s establishing its position in the market now, and I wouldn’t have said that even a few months ago, because it takes time in terms of feedback to be how to save more money fast sure, since in the end, if a product doesn’t sell again and again it hasn’t succeeded.

At the recent insight conference in st petersburgh, florida, however, don young of MTS underlined the difficulty facing manufacturers wanting how to save more money fast to introduce new product components in order to achieve thinner how to save more money fast products. The history of aborbent cores, he said, started with the use of tissue followed by the introduction how to save more money fast of fluff pulp and then saps (superabsorbent polymers). Other developments have included procter & gamble’s stiff and curly fibres, weyerhauser’s crosslinked fibres (HBA) and more recently P&G’s drymax.

Possible options for creating new absorbent cores, he suggested, include compressed fluff/SAP cores, those containing ‘gel lock’ technology, various nonwoven/SAP sandwich constructions and meltblown and airlaid products. The major manufacturers of aborbent hygiene products, however, have amassed extensive estates protecting technologies not even currently used. As far as absorbent cores are concerned, P&G has around 80 current patents covering them, kimberly-clark a further 35 and SCA a number related to how to save more money fast foam applications and density gradients.
