BANGKOK, THAILAND: Indorama Ventures Ltd has acquired FiberVisions Holdings, a US based global manufacturer of specialty mono and bi-component fibres. The closing of the transaction will take place on 6 January 2012. FiberVisions has a total global production capacity of 221,000 tonne per year of specialties, with 117,000 tonne per year being produced in the US, 90,000 tonne per year in Europe and 14,000 tonne per year in China.
