The WEPA Group has increased production of its soft and absorbent paper products after investing in a Gambini-supplied converting line for its Leuna plant in Germany.

The converting line can produce high quality hygiene paper at production speeds of 700 metres per minute and is geared towards kitchen towels.

With the investment, the company said it can “continue to offer customers innovative products of the highest quality, and to simultaneously act sustainably”.

Harm Bergmann-Kramer, member of the WEPA Group Management Board, said: “The plant is unique in Germany and sets new standards for the quality of kitchen towels, while at the same time using low quantities of raw material.

“With Gambini’s innovative AirMill technology that includes automatic-change embosser and the very latest rewinder technology, the line is technologically state-of-the-art.

“It is a further investment in the WEPA Group’s technology leadership and an important component in achieving our sustainability goals with regard to sustainable production.”

The Leuna site is one of five German locations for the business and produces toilet paper as well as kitchen towels.
