Turkey’s Lila Group has responded to increasing export volumes and the growth potential of the domestic market with a TL450m investment in a tissue facility.
A Valmet-supplied Advantage DCT 200 TS is planned to become operational in the second half of 2021 and will increase the company’s tissue paper production by 33%.
It will be built on the same site as its existing production facility in Çorlu, increasing the site’s production area by 30,000 square metres to a total of 170,000 square metres.
Lila Group chairman of the board Orhan Öğücü said: “We have just announced the news of our investment at one of our production facilities in October 2019, and this facility has become operational in the first quarter of 2020.
“And now, I am very happy to share with you our last investment. Our company Lila Group is realising an investment spurt.
“Exporting to 80 countries all around the world, we, as the Lila Family, continue to add new ones to our achievements with each passing day.
“With our new facility, which we will carry into effect with an investment cost of TL450m, we will be the largest production centre under a single roof in Turkey.”
