Production boost: ICT France’s second TM will add 70,000tpy to its Loire-based facility

ICT France has announced plans to boost its tissue production capacity by 70,000tpy after revealing investment plans for a tissue machine.

The continuous machine will be installed at the company’s existing plant in Loire, an integrated greenfield facility that was established in 2011 and currently produces 70,000tpy.

Riccardo Baccelli, Executive Director at ICT, told TWM: “By adding the second paper machine we will complete the original project for this site, that has always seen a two machine configuration.

“We are determined to continue with the project to speed up further growth and consolidate our leadership in top quality European consumer tissue markets.”

The new machine is scheduled to start-up in the second half of 2023.
