City Group’s facility, Bangladesh: the company has announced its entry into the tissue market with a TM investment

Bangladeshi consumer goods manufacturer City Group has entered the tissue market after investing in a Toscotec-supplied AHEAD 2.2 tissue line.

The new tissue mill will be erected in the Hoshendi Economic Zone near Dhaka and is planned to start production in 2023.

It has a design speed of 2,200m/min and a production capacity of over 40,000tpy.

It is designed for superior drying efficiency through the combination of the latest generation design of TT NextPress shoe press and TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer, as well as TT Hood with multistage energy recovery.

The turnkey supply encompasses the complete stock preparation and fibre recovery systems, the patented TT SAF Short Approach Flow with double dilution, the full electrification plant, Toscotec’s proprietary control system, and all associated auxiliary systems.

Toscotec will also deliver the OPTIMA 2200 slitter rewinder.

Md. Imran Uddin, Director of Planning & Business Development at City Group, said: “When we set out to enter the tissue market, we did a careful evaluation of machinery manufacturers at global level looking for a supplier of turnkey projects who could also provide all the assistance we needed to succeed.

“We decided on Toscotec because they offered the highest guarantee of advanced technology and wide experience in giving full-on support to newcomers in tissue.”
