Pegas Nonwovens is Europe’s second largest producers of nonwoven fabric for hygiene application (diapers, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence). Based in Znojmo in the Czech Republic, the company produced over 100,000 tonnes of fabric in 2014.
With less than 5%, personal cost seems little to matter to the overall bottom line. Material and energy cost account nearly three quarters of total sales. Pegas contracts production volumes on an average 1-2 year basis and is paid a conversion margin plus the cost of it main raw materials - polypropylene and polyethylene plastic, therefore, volatility in the price of material should be hedged from the bottom line point of view.
