WEPA's Piechowice mill - the line is an investment in the company's future

WEPA Piechowice has invested in a Toscotec-supplied AHEAD 2.2S tissue line on a full turnkey basis.  

The project is planned for start-up in the third quarter of 2021 and it will be the sixth tissue line delivered by the supplier to the German group.   

The AHEAD 2.2S machine features a 2.7m sheet trim width and a design speed of 2,200m/min. 

It will produce premium quality tissue mainly for the AfH market. 

Udo Raumann, managing director of WEPA Professional, said: “The new line is an investment in our future.  

“We have modernised the production site by replacing the existing crepe line with state-of-the-art machinery for tissue production.”

This is a repeated turnkey order for the WEPA Piechowice mill, where an AHEAD 2.0S machine supplied by Toscotec on a turnkey basis came online in 2017.
