President & CEO

I take immense pleasure in introducing you to AstenJohnson, a privately-owned multinational company.

We specialize in manufacturing industrial textiles and non-woven fabrics, as well as custom designed equipment. AstenJohnson has manufacturing facilities and offices in the United States, Canada, Singapore, China, Belgium, Germany, Thailand, the Czech Republic and Chile.  Currently, we employ over 1,800 people globally and continue to expand.  The same two families, the Astens and the Johnsons, have owned the company for over 225 years!

At AstenJohnson we have a proud heritage of growth and innovation spanning multiple centuries.  We drive cost savings efforts to reduce waste, support the local communities we work and live in through charity, and invest in energy savings upgrades in our facilities.  Responsible stewardship of the environment and our local communities are priorities that have originated and remained with the company since 1790.

One of the keys to our success is the openness and diversity of our work environment where people are truly valued as our strongest asset.  AstenJohnson is a place where our associates enjoy collaborating with each other in a team environment. We have an ethical, safe and participative workplace – where everyone’s opinion is valued.

As a successful global company, AstenJohnson strives to foster a continuous improvement mindset through associate interaction and innovation. AstenJohnson is one of the few companies able to drive a continuous improvement culture deep into the organization decade after decade.

We recently diversified our operations, broadening beyond our legacy in the paper industry to the new and fast growing industry of nonwovens, helping drive profitability and growth well into the future.  Our global operations run with complete autonomy in a team based environment where decisions impacting the customer can be made quickly and decisively. Over the next 6 years we expect our sales to grow by 50% as we focus on developing markets inside and outside the paper industry.

We celebrate innovation and look for ways to make positive changes every day.  Our benefit and compensation packages are competitive and we’re constantly striving to help our associates achieve their career goals. We believe all of this helps AstenJohnson maintain an exceptionally low employee turnover rate and attract the very best and brightest people available.

As you can see, at AstenJohnson, we are proud of the company that we have built and would like to invite you to be a part of our team. I look forward to welcoming you personally as you search for a solid fit as a potential member of the AstenJohnson family!
