Cascades Packaging has increased its production capacity after starting-up its PM1 at its Kingsey Falls mill, Canada-based site, following a major rebuild.

Supplied by Toscotec, the project included the rebuild of the dryer section with the installation of TT SteelDryers.

The rebuild aimed to achieve ā€œthe highest production increase with the lowest possible impact on the existing machineā€.

Toscotec customised its engineering design in order to efficiently integrate its new dryer section into the existing equipment.

Mathieu Gendron, mill manager of Cascades Kingsey Falls, said: ā€œAfter start-up, we are seeing a promising increase in the production and we are confident that it will match the project targetsā€.

Established in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres.
