Toscotec has absorbed its tissue machine hood and ventilation sister company Milltech into its tissue technology business.

The PM supplier purchased Milltech in 2012 and has since operated it as a separate company.

All of Milltech’s staff have transferred to Toscotec, including managing director Luca Linari, who takes on the role of sales and product manager for energy and environmental systems for Toscotec.

Toscotec managing director Alessandro Mennucci said: “This is a natural evolution for us. When we acquired Milltech it created an ideal synergy because minimising energy consumption is central to our technological vision.

“Milltech has proved its worth in this respect, but there is no longer any benefit from it remaining a separate company.

“Its manufacturing facilities are already on site here at Toscotec and it is strategically rational to operate as one entity.”
