Ukraine-based JCS Kochavinska Paper Factory has diversified into virgin tissue paper production after investing €4m in a Maflex-supplied Hermes line.
The scope of supply includes a turn-key solution 600m/min consumer converting line and a packaging line, complete with the Heracle automatic change embossing technology.
According to the machinery supplier, JCS Kochavinska made the investment so it could enter the top-quality virgin tissue paper market, having previously just produced and converted recycled paper.
Overall, the investment will double the converting company’s annual production capacity.
JCS Kochavinska is one of the Ukraine’s largest tissue producers and produces AfH, At-Home and private label tissue products, exporting globally.
