PGI non-wovens is a global company with 25 manufacturing facilities all around the world. Together with the European Motor Manufacturers, PGI non-wovens developed the Chicopee range of speciality wiping cloths to meet the challenges of new water and powder based paint technology as well as the increased quality requirements of the Global Automotive market.

The Chicopee product range is globally approved and is used by most paint shops and by all major European motor manufacturers.

The cloths are manufactured to strict quality standards at the factory in Cuijk in the Netherlands, and are supplied in sealed packs from the factory, to ensure that the customer receives the cloths free of dirt and contamination.
