Kimberly-Clark de Mexico (KCM) has fired up late in June its new 60,000tpy tissue paper machine PM5.

It is understood that the machine started production in the end of June.

The PM is installed at KCM’s Bajío mill, located in the Mexican Querétaro state, and will raise the plant’s capacity to approximately 270,00tpy.

With the new PM, KCM’s total tissue paper production capacity jumps to approximately 735,00tpy, distributed among six mills in the country.
