(News from RISI) German tissue giant WEPA is set to raise the converting capacity at its Kriebethal tissue mill in Saxony.

The company is investing in a new line for cosmetic wipes, which will reportedly double the site’s converting capacity.

It is also building three new warehouses on an area it acquired from the neighbouring Papierfabrik Kübler & Niethammer.

The cost of the investment was not revealed. The new converting line is expected to start operating in the third quarter of this year.

WEPA’s Kriebethal mill can produce some 85,000tpy of tissue on two machines.
