Portugal’s Paper Prime has boosted its capacity after investing in a Toscotec-supplied AHEAD tissue machine.

TM1 will be installed at the company’s Vila Velha de Rodão site. Included in the investment is a stock preparation plant for dry virgin pulp, an AHEAD-2.0S tissue machine with Steel Yankee Dryer TT SYD-16FT, machine auxiliaries including Milltech’s Gas fired Hood and steam and condensate and dust removal system.

Located in Lousã, Portugal, Paper Prime’s parent company Trevipapel also has two converting plants located in the centre of the country, converting 20,000tpy and serving the internal market and exporting its Joker brand of products to Spain, central Europe, Africa and South America.

Established in 1999, Trevipapel has grown from a small private company into one of the leading manufacturers of professional hygiene products in the AfH sector in Portugal.
