The move adds reciprocating flow technology to PCMC’s tissue packaging product line offering.

Sergio Casella, PCMC-Italy president, said: “This marks a new era for PCMC. By adding STAX’s expertise and capabilities, we are the only manufacturer to offer both reciprocating and continuous flow equipment as well as complete solutions from unwinders through palletisers for customers worldwide.”

Part of the Barry-Wehmiller group, PCMC specialises in the design and manufacture of converting machinery for the tissue, nonwovens and package-printing industries worldwide.

Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller
chairman and chief executive, said: “This new partnership with STAX Technologies provides PCMC with an exciting opportunity to build a stronger, more sustainable global tissue packaging organisation.

“We look forward to working alongside STAX’s team members.”
