Start-up team: Panda Paper Mills (1997) delegation at Toscotec’s TT SYD Technology Center in Massa, Italy

Panda Paper Mills (1997), a subsidiary of Israeli manufacturer Sano Enterprises, has invested in a Toscotec-supplied complete drying section rebuild of PM1 at the company’s Netanya production facility in Israel.

PM1 produces high quality tissue from recycled fibres for the AfH market, and the scope of supply includes a latest generation TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer, the entire steam and condensate removal system, and high-efficiency TT Hoods.

The upgrade aims to “substantially increase” the machine’s drying capacity and is planned for the second half of 2024. 

Eliran Elbaz, Vice President Paper & Complementary Products Division of Sano Bruno’s Enterprises, said: “Toscotec’s state-of-the-art technology will allow us to raise the bar on our paper products portfolio.

“Their added value is key for our customer base, and we keep on investing and working towards this goal.” 

Panda Paper Mills (1997) is a tissue manufacturer based in Netanya where it operates one tissue machine.

The company is a subsidiary of Sano Enterprises, an Israeli manufacturer of non-food products.
