France’s Global Hygiène is to increase its production capacity after signing for a complete turnkey tissue production plant.

Supplied by A.Celli Paper, the investment will take place at its Charavines plant.

The new iDEAL1800S machine will have a 2.8m width and an operating speed of 1,800mpm.

The project also includes an E-WIND T100 rewinder and a R-WAY® rollhandling system.

Luc Brami, chief executive of Global Hygiène, said that the production of Charavines is estimated at 30,000tpy and will cover the needs of the two Global Hygiène group’s converting plants, in Auxonne and Vern d’Anjou.

Delivery is expected for the fourth quarter of 2019.
