Greece’s MAXI has increased its production capacity after investing in a Recard-supplied complete new tissue production plant. 

The line will be installed at the company’s Katerini factory and start-up is scheduled for 2021. 

The scope of supply includes a Crescent Former TM which will produce 115tpy and reach a speed of 1,850 metres/min. 

With this investment, the Greek company will increase its total production from the current 28,000 tonnes per year to 68,000tpy.  

The turnkey plant includes three stock preparation lines for long, short fibres and broke/rejects from the converting area.

William Papadopoulos, MAXI Chairman of the Board and chief executive, said: “Following the recent completion of a new investment in tissue roll converting with the installation of a Fabio Perini line for consumer products, MAXI has ordered a complete new tissue plant from Recard.” 

Recard has previously delivered two turnkey plants for the company in Katerini in 2006 and 2010.
