Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

ICT Group, Lucca. Italy, reports that it is considering a new investment for its ICT Poland mill located in the town of Kostrzyn, just 90 km east of Berlin, Germany. The investment would include a new 70,000 metric tpy tissue machine, additional converting equipment, and related logistic and civil infrastructure.
Currently, ICT Poland has some 400 employees and produces 140,000 metric tpy of finished products. Because of its "world class" operations, ICT Poland is considered to be one of the most modern and efficient tissue mills in the world. Since September 2010, the plant also includes a highly efficient, fully automatic warehouse for stocking and shipping its finished products.
The new machine would eventually be an addition to ICT Poland’s first two tissue machines stated up in 2001 and 2008. The future site would therefore need additional personnel to operate the three full width tissue machines and the fully integrated converting hall downstream.
The ICT Group currently is evaluating several investment options in different countries. However, should the decision for the investment finally fall on Poland, startup date for the new machine is estimated to be in third quarter of 2015

ICT Group has production companies in Italy, Spain, Poland, and France. The current combined capacity is approximately 470.000 metric tpy and the company has approximately 1,300 employees.
