Yuen Foong Yu has said two of its four new PMP Group-supplied Intelli-Tissue® 1600 Advanced lines are now up and running.
The tissue producer announced at the end of April 2013 that it had invested in four new lines with the supplier.
On 28 August, a second PMP Intelli-Tissue® 1600 Advanced line was brought on stream at the YFY’s Yangzhou mill in China.
The new 2.8 m width CF tissue machine (PM8) has an operating speed 1600mpm and capacity of 75tpd.
It produces virgin fibre-based tissue in the basis weight range at reel from 13-31.3gsm – for conversion into facial tissue, toilet rolls and kitchen towels.
It is the second out of four start-up’s that will be performed by YFY and PMP Group in 2014/2015.
Currently Yuen Foong Yu brands include Mayflower, Tender and Delight.
Through production expansion, product line extensions, and strengthening branded products, the company’s goal is to be ranked as one of the top five tissue producers in China.
