Last month (December 2016) the Italian supplier Toscotec S.p.A. delivered two tissue machines, TM 3 and TM 4, to Vinda Paper (Zhejiang, China) to be installed at its Longyou mill. The machines are scheduled to begin installation in the spring and complete startup in mid-2017. 

The Vinda Zhejiang mill, catering to the east China market, with Shanghai in the proximity, has registered sustained growth since the first two Toscotec supplied tissue machines, TM 1 and 2, were fired up in the last quarter of 2014. Building on the outstanding results of the previous machines, Vinda has decided to invest again in Toscotec’s technology in Zhejiang province and in the second half of 2016 has sealed the new orders. With these two new machines, TM 3 and 4, Vinda Zhejiang mill is expected to achieve a total production capacity of 210,000 metric tpy. 
Following startup in 2016 of other three Toscotec supplied machines in Guangdong and Shandong provinces, with a total production increase of 90,000 metric tpy, the Vinda Group continues uninterrupted strategic growth in a period of slowdown for the Chinese market. The new tissue machines delivered to Vinda Zhejiang will bring an additional increase of 60,000 metric tpy.
