César Iglesias enters tissue market with TT SYD start-up

The Dominican Republic’s César Iglesias Group has moved into the tissue market after starting up a Toscotec-supplied TT SYD.

The second-generation machine was successfully started-up at its paper mill in Santo Domingo in the Caribbean, producing and converting toilet tissue, paper towels and napkins.

Following start-up, the company said it has observed a marked increase of production capacity and energy savings in the drying section.

It added that the height, width and pitch of the internal ribs as well as the shell thickness “achieved an optimal geometry, which guarantees a highly efficient heat transfer.

The supply also includes the steam and condensate system, the Yankee coating spray boom, a new forming roll, as well as the complete overhaul service of press rolls.

In response to the customer’s request for the fastest possible delivery, Toscotec said it further refined the production time and was able to deliver the Steel Yankee Dryer in record time.

Jesús Feris Ferrús, César Iglesias technical director, said: “When we selected the supplier for this investment we thought that the TT SYD’s superior performance and short delivery time made it the most competitive choice in the market.

“The energy efficiency of the TT SYD will allow us to reduce the manufacturing cost of our tissue line and give us a competitive advantage in the market.”

César Iglesias is a Dominican company with more than 100 years of experience.

Dedicated to the manufacture and marketing of mass consumption products in the areas of cleaning, home care and personal care and food, it has over 2,000 employees, 21 factories, a portfolio of 27 brands.
