With three generations and over fifty years in business, the Ploeger’s have built a solid reputation as perhaps the best in the world at performing precision hot-knife slitting of industrial and specialty fabrics. The Ploeger’s were the first to successfully convert woven nylon fabrics into nylon impression fabric printing ribbons. They are the inventors of the Errorite Correction Typewriter Ribbon—also known as the universal black and white cover-up correction typewriter ribbon. The Ploeger’s also developed other patents relating to nylon impression printing ribbons used in the manufacturing process around the world today—such as the welded endless loop.
The Ploeger’s and Filmon Process Corp. are committed to providing quality service to businesses and industry. The Ploeger’s understand their reputation of providing reliable and consistent quality service is what keeps them at the top of this industry worldwide. Filmon Process Corp. is dedicated to performing custom precision hot-knife slitting of nylon impression fabrics—both inked and un-inked rolls, specialty woven and non-woven industrial materials, and related textiles according to the customer's individual needs.
New York and Long Island native, Walter Ploeger Jr., moved Filmon Process Corp. and Ploeger Enterprises, Inc. along with the entire family to the Asheville area of Western North Carolina in 1980 to start calling North Carolina home. Today, Carl and Robert Ploeger continue to carry on the family tradition of adhering to the highest quality standards in custom commission precision hot-knife slitting of fabrics to each customer’s specifications.
