SCA is to start up a new baby diaper line at its mill in Valls, Spain.

It will become the first SCA mill in Europe to combine the production of personal care and tissue products.

The company is the world’s fourth largest player in the baby diaper segment and holds the number two position in Europe. In Spain, it sells baby diapers under retailers’ brands.

The Valls mill will produce baby diapers for the retailer Mercadona’s personal care brand, Deliplus.

Magnus Groth, president, SCA Consumer Goods Europe, said: “With this new baby diaper line SCA aims to strengthen its business in Spain, setting grounds for future growth.
“This is proof of SCA´s commitment to its business in Spain. It is not only an important announcement for SCA and the Valls mill, but for the entire Valls and Tarragona area.”

The baby diaper line is scheduled to start production in the third quarter of this year.
