Yuen Foong Yu starts up its Andritz-supplied tissue production line in Taiwan, China

Yuen Foong Yu Consumer Products Co. has started up an Andritz-supplied PrimeLineCOMPACT tissue production line at its mill in Chingshui.  

With a width of 3.65m and a maximum operation speed of 1,650m/min, the line produces high quality household grades including toilet paper, napkins, handkerchiefs, and facial tissue.  

Tang Mingfa, Vice General Manager, Yuen Foong Yu said: “This new line is of utmost importance to us as it increases both the quantity and quality of our household paper production and strengthens our competitiveness on the global market.

“It perfectly aligns with our vision of high quality and sustainable, low-emissions production.”  

Andritz’s scope of supply includes a PrimeFlow 2-layer headbox that the supplier said minimises slice deflection to achieve best cross-profile quality, a PrimePress XT Evo shoe press including Impulse shoe press sleeves to ensure top quality paper with excellent bulk and high post-press dryness, and a PrimeDry Steel Yankee (18 ft. diameter) with canopy hood for energy-efficient drying and significant steam savings.  

Yuen Foong Yu is a leading supplier of household products in Taiwan, China, with brands such as Mayflower, Tender, and Delight.
