Conwed hits half a century
07 Jan 16 by desalination
Plastic netting manufacturing giant, Conwed, hits 50 this year. Minneapolis-based Conwed has, since its launch in 1966, developed netting solutions for industrial and consumer products worldwide including, in recent years, desalination membranes.
Conwed plans to communicate its collaborative approach and “thirst for innovation” in a campaign titled: Celebrating our Past, Engineering our Future. A video celebrates the company’s milestones over the past five decades
During the rapid growth in its first three decades of existence, Conwed introduced reinforcement netting to bedding products, became essential in reinforcing carpet cushion and provided separation, containment and support to diverse air and liquid filtration products.
In the past ten years, Conwed has expanded into many other areas including reverse osmosis feed spacers and high-temperature netting for automotive, oil, hydraulic and liquid filtration applications. Last year it added to its reverse osmosis membrane product line.
“Our netting innovation relies heavily on our customers’ product development needs. We pride ourselves on customizing each netting design to the point where we rarely have an off- the-shelf netting solution for our customers. Netting is so versatile that we encourage customers to share what their challenges are before assuming they can’t be solved”, said Conwed’s strategic marketing manager, Ivan Soltero.
Conwed has now five manufacturing locations on two continents, more than 400 employees and a global distribution network.
