Wielsbeke, Belgium – April 28, 2017 – The business unit “Engineered Products” of Beaulieu International Group is pleased to announce excellent safety results for the production sites of its Beaulieu Fibres International division, on the occasion of International Safety Day 2017.

Improving safety behaviour is a continuous priority and the Engineered Products Business Unit has taken this to heart. We are excited to make a proactive contribution with B.I.G. Behave Safely and look forward to the positive impact of having our production teams for Beaulieu Yarns and Beaulieu Technical Textiles on board, to keep up the momentum of our Fibres division.”
