HUMBOLDT, Tenn. – Jones Family of Companies, Inc., a leader in sustainable nonwovens products across a broad range of industries, announced the acquisition of Rontex America, LLC.
This acquisition is the latest strategic initiative for the Jones Family of Companies as it focuses on strengthening its presence and capabilities in its core nonwovens markets, including sleep products, packaging, acoustics, building materials and floor products, while expanding into other key engineered and technical performance nonwovens sectors.
“Rontex’s expertise and experience in engineered nonwovens will be a powerful addition to our family of companies and bolster our aspirations to drive long-term growth,” said CP Davis, president and CEO of the Jones Family of Companies. “We are very proud to have Rontex join our family.

Rontex also produces decorative nonwovens for home use.
Rontex America will continue to operate out of its Amherst, N.H., facility, which will allow distribution of Jones products in the northeast region. As part of this initiative, Jones VP of Technical Nonwovens Matt Buck has been named general manager of Rontex America.
“I’m excited to lead a very talented and experienced Rontex team and support Jones’ commitment to offering value-added products focused on sustainability and innovation. The team is excited to join the Jones family,” Buck said.
