What sets us apart


The filtration effect of meltblown fleece is created by the density of the material, and also by the electrostatic charge. The charge actively attracts airborne particulates through the fleece and binds these to the fibers.

Our meltblown is manufactured on a high-performance technology machine made by the leading supplier for manufacturing premium fleece. In addition to the 2-ream line from Oerlikon, we also have an outstandingly equipped lab to continuously ensure consistent quality for our customers. Our technology and our know-how allow us to manufacture meltblown with an ideal and highly-effective filtration effect, and with optimized respiratory resistance for your end products.

Dirks Healthcare manufacturers on a new Oerlikon line, which is particularly characterized by its energy-efficiency. More importantly: environmental protection and sustainability are core values for the entire Dirks Group. We minimize power consumption, use waste heat, and recycle production waste. Our objective is the climate-friendly production of meltblown in Germany, and we are working hard to achieve this objective. A large part of the renewable power generated in Germany comes from the windy coasts of Eastern Frisia. As Dirks Group (registered in Emden), we have an obligation to do so.
