Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Fabrica De Papel San Francisco S.A. de C.V., Mexicali, Mexico, has ordered a complete tissue production line from Metso, Finland, to startup in the second quarter of 2013. The value of the order has not been disclosed, but according to Metso, this kind of production line is typically valued at EUR 10 - 15 million, depending on capacity and scope of delivery.

Metso's scope of delivery will include a complete tissue machine equipped with a headbox, a yankee cylinder, a yankee hood, sheet control, tail threading equipment, a dust management system and a reel. The new tissue line will use 100% recycled fiber as raw material.

The delivery is a repeat order from Fabrica De Papel San Francisco. The company now successfully operates two Metso tissue machines at its Mexicali facility, one started up in 2006 and the other in 2009.

Fabrica De Papel San Francisco currently operates four tissue production lines and converting facilities, delivering tissue products for the Mexican market.
