Valley Tissue Packaging (VTP) and Tissue Machine Company (TMC) have entered into a joint partnership to offer an enhanced range of packaging services for the global tissue industry.

The move will “better fulfil customers’ packaging needs with new products, world-class service and spare parts”.

TMC and VTP have annual sales of around $100,000,000 and will serve the industry’s packaging needs with production capabilities in Europe, North America and Brazil.

Matteo Gentili, president of TMC, and Mike Rooyakkers, president of VTP, symbolically signed the partnership and presented the upcoming plans for development at Tissue World Miami 2018.

Corey Hurst, VTP VP sales and operations, said: “VTP is excited to formalise its partnership with TMC to offer a wider range of well-designed technology throughout North America.

“We have found TMC to be a very innovative machine manufacturer for the consumer market.

“This, teamed with VTP’s strong North American AfH market, allows us to deliver new products and services to our customers”.
