Valmet-supplied TM
Papel San Francisco invests in its sixth Valmet-supplied TM

Mexico’s Papel San Francisco has signed for its sixth Valmet-supplied tissue line, an Advantage DCT 100TS TM that will be installed at its Mexicali plant.

Start-up is planned for the first half of 2024 and once up and running will fulfil the company’s need for new capacity for standard tissue products.

Dario Palma y Meza Espinoza, Operational Director, Papel San Francisco, said: “In today’s business environment it is crucial to consistently operate equipment at the maximum productivity and efficiency.”

Valmet has previously delivered five tissue machines to the company.

Four Advantage DCT machines started up in 2006, 2009, 2018 and 2020.

According to the supplier, Papel San Francisco was also the first company to start up an Advantage NTT line in 2013.

The value of the order was not disclosed.
