The demands on modern nonwovens for the hygiene industry and their manufacturing process are ever increasing. In addition to carefully selected raw materials and gentle fibre processing, a uniform basis weight, surface quality and skin-friendliness are major demands that consumers place on hygiene products. CMC Consumer Medical Care GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of PAUL HARTMANN AG, specialises in the production of cotton-wool and cosmetic products for end users at its facility in Düren. In 2005, the company spun off from the renowned Hartmann Group, known for its medical devices. With nonwovens and cotton wool products in the fields of medical, baby and home care, as well as cosmetics, CMC is one of Europe’s leading providers.
