USA-based Precision Paper Converters (PPC) has made a series of investments to increase capacity following an increase in demand for the products.
Headquartered in Northeast Wisconsin, the facial tissue converting company has purchased a Bretting-supplied accumulator, Valley Tissue Packaging casepacker, Tri-Phase Automation quality vision system and centralised palletising system.
The company said the growth will advance its production capacity and allow for an additional focus on quality.
Startup began mid-December and is expected to be running at full speed in the first quarter of 2021.
In addition to the new equipment, PPC implemented upgrades to increase parent roll width capabilities.
Established in 1991, the company produces high-quality facial tissue and interfolded products such as lens wipes and delicate task wipes.
